GE GFC300V Garbage Disposal Leaking

04 February 2014 - 05:03 PM

Hello there, I have a simple quick question about a garbage disposal unit. Near the bottom of the unit there is the pipe that connects to the drain, that's obvious. However, above that there is a hose connected with a hose clamp that is approximately two feet long and is capped at the other end. It goes nowhere and connects to nothing. Are disposals supposed to have a drain hose (other than the main) or a vent or something? This was here when I bought the house and it's now leaking where the hose is clamped onto the side of the disposal. I'm just wondering if that was the proper way to install this or if that hose should go somewhere and actually serve a function (which is seems like it should). Does anyone have an opinion? I'd appreciate any advice you can offer. Thank you!

Septic Tank Treatment

03 June 2012 - 06:52 PM

Hello all, I was wondering if I could get some much needed advice on the best and proper septic tank/system treatment product. I have tried Ridex before but I am unsure if it is the best, I have heard bad things about it so I thought I would ask the experts. Doing searches here in the forums, I found a few references to Biodegreat from Shaklee, but now they don't list that as a product or seem to sell it anymore. Can anyone recommend a good product to keep a septic system happy? I would be grateful for any information you can share, and I thank you for the help!

Stuck Trash Compactor - Kenmore 665.841900000

26 August 2009 - 12:22 PM

Greetings all, once again I humbly enter your temple seeking advice.

I have a Kenmore under the counter trash compactor that came with my house when I bought it. It's been a dandy little unit until my wife hit the switch to start it compacting with the drawer open about an inch or so. Naturally, it tried to do its job for a moment or two and then quit. Now it is dead in the water, no indication of power, and I have no idea how to get the ram back up so I can open the drawer and assess the damage. The drawer won't open or close, which is to be expected, but I don't know where to go from here. I can just start taking it apart, but I thought I would ask the smart folk first before I end up with a bucket of scrap metal.

I have attached a pic of the front of it in case the helps anyone identify it beyond what the model number can tell you.

Thanks for your time, it is appreciated.
