SOURCE: Garbage Disposable won't work.

If the cutter plate will turn freely, look for a reset botton. Some units have them and depending on how it was installed, it will be around the back. It should be a push button, about 3/8" diameter. It takes a good hard push to reset it.

SOURCE: BADGER GARBAGE DISPOSAL just humms. does not work.

It sounds like the disposer has something jamming it. Try using the breaker wrench supplied with the disposer (or a suitable-size hex wrench) fitted into the socket on the bottom. Rock the wrench back and forth to see if you can loosen the jam. Another trick is to use a wooden rod (end of a broom handle, for example) to push on the blade to try dislodging the jam. Look inside with a flashlight to see if there is something that is easily missed. (I have found drink can tabs, coins and a shelf clip that way.)

It's also possible the motor starting capacitor inside the disposer or the motor itself is bad, in which case you would probably spend less on a new disposer than on repairing this one. But a jam is more likely.

SOURCE: Removing dishwasher drain plug on a new garbage disposal.

The plug is thin plastic. Use a flat blade screw driver and a hammer to knock it out. I know this sounds primitive but this is how it is done. I have been a plumber for thirty years.

They don't work garbage want my money back


Robert,
Garbage disposals are not designed to take ALL of your garbage... and DO NOT use one if you are on a septic system!!
If it is not working, check for voltage to the switch, from the switch to the disposal,,if you have voltage to the disposal, some have a reset on the disposal..

Tip

How is the best way to use a Garbage Disposal


Garbage disposals can be a great feature in the kitchen if there are used correctly. If they are not used correctly they can be a real pain to get unjammed or to get them cleaned out.
To keep a garbage disposal from smelling up the kitchen, proper use and care must be followed.

8c66f82.jpg

There are certain foods that a garbage disposal will handle well and there are some that do not do very well in a garbage disposal.

Some that do well and you can put into the garbage disposal are:
1. soft bones, like chicken or fish bones
2. ice cubes
3. coffee grounds
4. citrus fruit peels
5. store bought disposal deodorizers and cleaners

Some foods that do not do well are:
1. very fibrous vegetables, like onions, corn husks, celery, etc…
2. hard bones, like beef or pork
3. large pits, or seeds like peach seeds

Also, while it is good to run water while grinding food in a garbage disposal, it is not a good idea to run very hot water in the disposal. This can cause the motor to over heat.

Do not run the garbage disposal longer then a half minute after the food id ground up. Running an empty garbage disposal can cause excessive wear.

It is also a good idea to start a full stream of water and the garbage disposal motor before putting large quantities of food into the disposal. Staring the motor with a large amount of food inside the disposal is hard on the motor, and may cause a jam.

I have a badger 9 garbage disposal unit, and it leaks after installing from the discharge outlet at the top of the discharge tube under the side flange. I replaced a badger 1 and I used the old gasket as...


Location of leak is not known for sure.
Sounds like leak is where tubular drain pipe connects to side of disposal?
If leak is where disposal connects to sink, typically this connection is sealed using plumbers putty.

Open following link for disposal instructions:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r6568559-post_photograph_fixya_questions_answers

1) If leak is at rubber gasket for tailpiece connection on side of disposal:
I don't know if your local home depot sells gaskets. Probably not sold separately.

2) Go to home depot and take rubber gasket out of a new garbage disposal box.

3) Or buy new disposal with a gasket, use the gasket and return disposal saying that part was missing..

4) To seal old gasket, use rectoseal white pipe joint compound.
Cover the gasket with rectoseal and then assemble parts.
Open following link above for photo of rectoseal.
I always use rectoseal on tubular drain connections for 100% seal first time every time.

5) Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on plumbing or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Sink garbage disposal not working! when I switch the garbage disposal on, nothing happens!


Do you hear a humming sound when you turn it on? If so, you have a clogged disposal. Check on the bottom for the allen wrench location recessed in the middle of the disposal. Insert the proper size allen wrench and you'll be able to rotate the motor back and forth (sometimes difficult at first) and eventually loosen the clog and free up the motor. If you're able to move the shaft/motor easily in the beginning and it still doesn't work you may have a defective disposal. If you want to check more thoroughly you'll need to check to see if you have power at the disposal when you turn on the switch. Use a electrical tester that you can buy at any home improvement store to see if you have power at the disposal. If so, and the motor turns easily when you use your allen wrench, you have a defective disposal and it needs replacement.

It's actually more cost-effective if you install it yourself. There are instructions, and help can also be acquired from the sales person (at Lowes or Home Depot for instance).
