In response to Re: garbage disposal removal
: : I have an old KitchenAide Kadette II disposal that I'm replacing, but I'm having a problem removing the unit. It does not the typical mounting ring, but looks more like 2 clamps. Can't figure out how to loosen these clamps. Any advice?

: I have the same problem. I want to take it out to clean out the grinding area and try and salvage mine but I can't figure out how to get it out. I haven't tried it yet but I am wondering if the whole unit turns and unscrews somehow. Any luck since February?

I suspect you already have it off of your sink, but in case someone finds this question like I did searching on the net I will tell you how I got it off. One of the silver clamps (probably the one in the back where you can't see like mine) has a release on it. You flip it up and the unit comes off of the sink. To take it apart you loosen the hex head screw on the very bottom of the unit. IT is actually a long rod that holds it all together. Good luck on yours!
