Hello my name is***** will be helping you today. Do you still need help with the disposal?
Okay, you have the 3-4 really long screws taken out already right?
Where were these screws located that you removed?
Okay, towards the middle of the disposal there will be 4 really long flat head screws, maybe about 3-4 inches long. You have to remove those in order to remove the shell of the disposal. Once those screws are out, use a hammer and lightly tap the flat head at the part where the screws were, you will see where the shell comes apart.
let me see if I can find you a video, okay I found one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhN4qzTieCA This isnt a KA but the concept is the same.
reformat the size, its way too big I cant see it clearly.
small enough so I can just view the image on my screen, if you click youre link youll know what i mean
I will try and find info on this unit, although I have never taken apart a KA disposal. More times than not it just makes more sense to replace the unit instead of fixing it. I think that switch costs about 80 bucks and for a few extra dollars you can buy a new one.
Remember, it can be rusted shut, take some wd 40 and apply it
oh 1 HP, then yeah its worth it to fix it
I read there are two bolts at the bottom that hold that switch in place, so far you have been working on the top of the unit?
See 14on the diagram, that is the 2 bolts I was describing.
Theres really no information about dissembling this disposal. If those bolts dont do it ill have to opt out for another expert maybe they have a repair manual.
I believe that would allow you to remove the shell of the disposal. You cant access that switch out removing that part. Also the second page is just a blow up of whats inside of the disposal. I dont see any way to remove the shell from the first page
But ill opt out, hopefully another expert has more insight. I dont weant to waste any more of your time.
