The chopper fell apart when I removed it to clean it, and now I can't get the cap to stay on. Nothing is broken, it just won't stay in place. Is there a way to fix this or do I need to purchase a new one?
ANSWER Claire, The chopper assembly and screen are pre formed and trimmed to fit a specific way in the chamber opening. " Remove the screw securing the foreign objects protector to the sump base and remove the protector. Remove the screw securing the inlet protector to the pump base and lift the inlet protector out. Remove the chopper assembly from the impeller shaft and lift it from the sump
base" . You'll need to remove the protector and recheck the chopper and screen for damage, or misshaping and replace the chopper as necessary.
