Garbage disposal tips
Caution: Never use hot water. Heat melts fat, allowing it to flow down along the sides of the drain pipe where it could solidify and eventually cause a blockage. Cold water causes fat to harden, which allows the impellers and shredder to grind it into bits. The motor that drives the flywheel in models that are able to do heavy work is a capacitor-start motor. The motor used in other models is a split-phase motor (see the chapter on small electric fans for a discussion of split-phase motors). Capacitor-start and split-phase motors are similar to each other, with one notable exception. The capacitor start motor has a capacitor which assists in starting the motor, giving the motor substantial starting torque that allows it to handle heavier loads. A capacitor-start motor is equipped with two field coils; so is a split-phase motor. One coil is the starting coil, and the e other is a running coil. In a capacitor-start motor, the starting coil is wired in series with the capacitor. This means that when the appliance is turned on the capacitor gives the starting coil a boost to start the motor with sufficient torque to overcome the load imposed on it by heavier foodstuffs. A garbage disposer equipped with a capacitor-start motor is able to handle two quarts of all kinds of food waste, while one equipped with a split-phase motor can handle only one quart of food wastes that are limited in bulkiness.
Once the motor is started continued operation could overload the motor. Thus, a centrifugal switch is included in the mechanism, as it is in a split-phase motor. This switch opens up to take the capacitor and starting coil out of the circuit, and the operation of the motor is assumed by the running coil. a matter of switches
THE NUMBER AND TYPE of switches from one garbage disposer to another may vary. However, every disposer has an on-off switch. Some disposers have the on-off switch mounted on a wall above the sink. The switch resembles an ordinary light switch. The type of garbage disposer that uses this switch is called a continuous-feed model, because you can stuff garbage into the disposer while the appliance is running. This, however, is not necessarily a desirable feature, especially with youngsters in the home. They could stick their hands into the disposer while the unit is operating. Adults are not immune from accidents either. For this reason, the other method of switching is considered by many to be more desirable. The on-off switch is positioned in the mouth of the disposer and is controlled by the stopper. The type of garbage disposer using a switch of this sort is called a batch-feed model. When the stopper is loose or out of the unit’s -mouth, the switch is deactivated, and the unit can’t run. After you fill the hopper with garbage, you have to install the stopper, turn and lock it in place. Some garbage disposers also have an on-off switch in the cold-water line that works in conjunction with the other on-off switch. The cold-water switch assures that the disposer won’t operate until cold water is flowing into it even though the other on-off switch is “on.”Many garbage-disposer motors are equipped with an overload switch. This shuts off current if too heavy a load is imposed on the motor. The units have a button that can be pressed to reactivate them once the load has been lessened.
