Throughout 15+ years of serving Los Angeles, we have seen everything stuck in a garbage disposal. Luckily we have the tools and know-how to service and address almost every garbage disposal emergency.
What To Do if Your Garbage Disposal is Not Grinding:
- 90% of garbage disposals that appear not to be working just need to be reset. There is usually a red or black reset button on the garbage disposal motor underneath your sink. Just push to reset.
If the garbage disposal is plugged into a wall outlet, ensure the outlet has power.
- Check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
Give it a Push-Start
The majority of issues with a garbage disposal are jammed propellers. Most garbage disposals have a hole underneath that allows you to hand-crank it free. To crank it, make sure that the switch is off or better yet, unplug it. Next use either an Allen wrench or a garbage disposal tool that you can pick up at most hardware stores. This should free up most non-serious jams.
