Question about Drains
There is nothing stuck in the disposal. I hit the reset button, but it still won't work. This has happened before and I know there is some trick to getting it going again, but I can't remember what it is. Can you help?
1. flip the power of and on at the breaker and press the reset switch on the disposal
2 quickly flip the power off and on at the disposal (when youdo this listen for a hmmmmmm
3 with the power off take a broom handle (any wooden handle I sometimes use a wooden spoon
and turn the impeller down inside of the drain area of the disposal opening from the sink do thid until you feel the impeler rotating
you may want to use a flashlight when you put the handle in try to make the impeller move in a clockwise drection
4 turn the power on at the disposal switch and it should run
After you get this running put some icecubes in the disposal turn on water and turn on disposal

Let me also add that many people think that a disposal- is to get rid of left over food.. WRONG-- best to srape your plates in the trash - then was your stuff. I also would buy a sink screen . you would be surprised how much junk is going down your drian in a day. disposal's are not what the name entales . to me they are just a gadget.

DO NOT DO THIS BEFORE YOU TURN THE POWER OFF. There is a nut in the middle of the disposal put a socket wrench on that nut and turn counterclockwise and see if that will loosen it up. If yes be sure to get as much of the debris as you can before turning the power back on. Always turn the water on before using the disposal.
A little tip for cleaning a disposal put some ice through it on a regular basis.
