I had to replace my leaking faucet yesterday. In the process, a handyman came to help extract the undermount ring under the faucet, as it was severely stuck, and could not be twisted out after the screws were removed. The previous installer applied pipe dope on it, which made it horribly impossible to twist the ring out.
I did unplug the connections for the garbage disposal and the dish washer before the old faucet removal and new faucet installation.
The handyman took hours to remove the ring with all sorts of tools.
He left after he removed the ring and removed the entire old faucet.
After I installed the new faucet, I plugged in the connection for my garbage disposal.
There’re sparks on the outlet every time I try to connect the garbage disposal, and the garbage disposal keeps running. Also, the switch to turn the garbage disposal on and off stopped working.
Prior to the faucet removal and installation, my garbage disposal was working fine.
Please kindly advise. Many thanks!
