This is a black flexible rubber cover that is over the top of the sink drain, used for your food waste disposer. It keeps liquids and smaller food particles from splashing back into the sink. The splash guard can become worn out over time and may need to be replaced. Make sure to disconnect the power before beginning your repair. This part is 3.75 inches in length, 3.75 inches in width, 0.75 inches in height and weighs 0.119 lbs. Remove the drain pipe from the disposal, and turn the mounting ring. Remove the old cover with a screwdriver and place the new one into place.

Water is leaking from the bottom of the disposal. It appears to coming through a round opening with a red plastic button in the center of the opening. What part is malfunctioning and what do i need to replace?The unit is about 10 years old but seems to run great.
For model number GC2000
Thank you for your question. The red plastic button you are describing sounds like the reset button. If there is water leaking in the area of the reset button, then there is either a crack in the body of the disposer or issue with the flywheel gasket and the disposer will need to be replaced. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

How do I replace the splash gasket?
For model number DFC1000AAX
Thanks for your question. Disconnect power to the unit. Remove the drain pipe from the disposal, then rotate the mounting ring to the lower disposal. Remove the old splash guard with a screwdriver and then install the new one.
I hope this helps.
