The splash guard for the disposer was deteriorating and kept falling into the disposer and getting chewed up making it even less reliable. I purchased two different 'universal' splash guards at the hardware store. Neither of them fit. I finally crawled under the sink with my eyeglasses and a flash light to find the model number. I searched for the model number on part select and received veery quickly. I just popped it in (less than a minute) and now everything is wonderful. Don't buy a new disposer (my wife wanted me to) buy the replacement part that is giving you trouble at PartSelect!

Mount Ring was very difficult to remove. Hammer needed to unlock. Once removed, rubber and fiber gaskets were easily replaced. Cushion Mount did not attach properly to sink flange after many attempts, so Mount Ring was placed too high for hopper to attach. The cushion mount was finally placed on flange correctly (not sure why it attached incorrectly previously) but all is well with no leaks. Dishwasher hose needed to be re-attached after hopper mounted and locked in position.

Splash guard kept popping up when disposer was used.

It was very difficult to find a splash guard to fit. Have tried at major stores LOWES and small Hardware stores. The people who worked on your Phone line helped me to choose the correct splashguard even though the model number did not match. I think the diposal was old. thanks for your help. It fit perfectly.
