garbage disposal

I have a kenmore 6035 1/2 horsepower garbage disposal that has a broken screw on the flange and is separated at that point..Can I easy out the broken screw and replace it? some water leakage when I turn it on...

Re: garbage disposal

If your disposer is over 5 years old and leaking, it's not worth fixing. Replace it.

Re: garbage disposal

any broken screw can be removed, sometimes with an easyout and sometimes by drilling and retapping and in worse cases, drilling a larger hole, tapping and installing a helicoil or using a larger screw. The question is, is it worth it. A 1/2 HP disposal is a light duty disposal. You may want to consider an upgrade.
