Electrical connections can be challenging if you are not familiar with them. While you wait for the expert answer, you may wish to check an installation manual that shows these connections for a Kenmore disposal. I was not able to find your specific model with the number provided. Hope this helps!

You only use 2 wires to connect your disposer up to electrical power; white & black. If you have red & yellow/blk wires also I suspect these wires came disconnected from the reset, overload or motor windings. I recommend calling for service on something like this or exchange the disposer. Here is a link for the website:

Please see the image provided below for normal wiring on a Kenmore garbage disposer. Be sure to use

when working with voltage &

disconnect power

before attempting service.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
