Typical problems with garbage disposals


Garbage disposal not working

If the disposal does not work when you turn it on see if it is getting power. Also try to to reset the disposal by pressing a small button that is usually found beneath the disposer.

Garbage disposal jams

Check if there are any big or hard material objects inside the disposal that may be jamming it up. Carefully remove them, if there are any. Try loosening the masher plate enough to rotate it. It usually helps to remove any jams.

Try cleaning it up with hot water and kitchen soap. Let the sink fill up with hot water to 3-4 inches. Add kitchen soap to the water, mix it up and turn your disposal on, letting all the liquid fully drain.
