Our garbage disposal unit has developed a leak at the top point where the
sink drain joins the disposal.
Is this simply a bad gasket, or does the unit need to be replaced. I've
never worked on these units, and it looks difficult for a novice.
Can't say without seeing it. Could be the gasket, could be corrosion. Won't
know until you take it apart. Taking off the drain line should not be too
difficult, but do it on a day that you can be sure of getting new parts that
you may need.
Check COnsumer Reports and buy a well rated one to have while taking the old
one apart. Buy it at Sears (they make some of the top rated ones) and if
you can fix the old one just bring it back for a refund.
