Insinkerator Evolution Compact disposal difficult to turn by hand in either direction. Is there a way to disassemble the unit in order to try to determine the exact cause of the problem. In the past when this happened I used a cordless impact with a 1/4" hex bit to get the impeller to turn free. It would be ok for awhile and then the problem would return.
 
No, it's better to just buy a new garbage disposal, especially after 10 years old.

Glad to help Larry!

One more question Jake, do I need to change the mounting flange that is installed in the sink if I'm going from Insinkerator Compact to Insinkerator Compact-3? I'm having difficulty getting the new disposal to engage the sink mounting flange?
 
Jake please disregard previous message, blocks of wood and some shims solved the problem. Thanks again Jake!
 
Excellent, good job Larry.(y)

Thanks for the update!
