How do you clean an InSinkErator baffle?

If you have an InSinkErator Evolution Series® garbage disposal, every model is equipped with a baffle that can be easily removed and cleaned. The baffle sits in the collar of the disposal. Simply, pull it out, rinse it off, and wipe it clean of any food waste residue.

Where does the Quiet Collar Sink Baffle go?

To install the Quiet Collar® Sink Baffle, just insert it into the sink hole opening with the “cone-shaped” side facing down. Make sure the groove on the quiet collar is engaging the “lip” on the flange all the way around. This should fit perfectly as long as you’re using the InSinkErator® sink flange.

Why is my InSinkErator leaking?

If the leak is from the dishwasher hose or the drain line, the likely problem is a broken seal between the disposal and any of these lines. The solution is to replace the seal. A disposal that is leaking from the bottom is a big problem because the seals inside the garbage disposal itself are broken.
