HOW TO FIX A JAMMED GARBAGE DISPOSAL

Posted by Brian's Plumbing on Sep 5, 2017 9:59:00 AM

Is your garbage disposal jammed? you will know it is by the humming noise! But, don't worry - it is an easy fix. 

Watch below as Keith explains how to reset your disposal! 

 

Steps to reset your garbage disposal:

  1. unplug the disposal 
  2. Try pressing the reset button first and plugging the disposal back in

if That Doesnt Work...

  1. unplug the disposal again
  2. grab your Allen wrench
  3. look underneath the disposal. There will be a hex shaped hole
  4. Insert the Allen wrench and Turn the wrench a few times
  5. Plug the disposal back in and try it again

please note that if you have standing water in your sink, that is a plumbing problem not a garbage disposal problem. Call us at 940-761-2040 and we would be happy to fix that for you.
