  1. Hello Cpitt. I agree with BigMike4511. You will probably need to replace that garbage disposal. According to the model number, it appears to have a 5 year warranty. If it is older than that, then I recommend that you replace it on your own. If it is less than 5 years old, then I recommend that you check your paperwork and owner's manual. You may be able to have it replaced under the warranty in that situation. If you need more help, let us know.

  3. If the housing is rusted through, the only thing you can do is replace the unit. One good way to find a leak is to wrap all the connections with toilet paper. The tissue will show wetness were the leak is.

    Unless it is under warranty, replacement (or removal and installation of a drain assembly) is the only real option. It is not that hard a job to do yourself, especially when there is already a disposal installed
