How To Fix A Garbage Disposal
Follow these steps:
Press the reset button located on the bottom of the disposer. If this doesn't work, turn off the power switch and shine a flashlight into the drain.
Look for a foreign object such as a coin, plastic bread tie or staple.
Remove the item with pliers or a grasping tool. It is dangerous to put your hand inside a garbage disposal.
Look to see if your disposer has a hex key jam clearing tool under the sink or taped to the disposer.
Check for a slot at the bottom of the disposer where the tool can be inserted and turned back and forth to clear the jam.
