Kenmore Disposer flange nut missing

15 February 2011 - 05:06 PM

Hi, guys. I've discovered that my Kenmore Model 175.67541 disposer is missing the flange nut (and it's plug) that connects the motor shaft to the rotor/shredder plate, and so while the motor spins like a politician caught with a prostitute, the rotor/shredder plate doesn't. It turns freely (the plate) but just isn't connected to the motor shaft. Also, I notice that the plate doesn't feel "seated" solidly - it rocks or wobbles when I turn it. I've rarely used the disposer since I bought the house 6 years ago, but vaguely remember finding a nut inside it sometime ago and just can't remember where I put it.
Anyway, Sears/Parts Direct will sell me a repair "kit", but the nice young lady seemed to have zero knowledge of what all of the parts involved were for. It seems like a pretty straight forward job to just replace the flanged nut, but then don't all "easy" projects seem that way until the house is on fire?
Well, bottom line is, does anyone have experience with this repair? Or any thoughts?
Thanks, Russell.
