Question about Moen Garbage Disposals

1 Answer

Garbage disposal is turning, but not draining, and bubbling up once it is turned off. Tried the allen wrench underneath which turns and turns, but nothing processing through.

Disposal isnt working its full of junk how do i get absolutely all power off to it so i can clean it out and then what do i do to troubleshoot it and if i need to replace how to do that?


How about creating a compost barrel? Pretty easy, there is a site called family handyman that has a pretty straightforward plan for one. But, if you can't be bothered to do that, just google to quickly find a list of items that CAN'T go into a garbage disposal. Most garbage disposals that are installed correctly have a traditional 110/120v plugged into an outlet installed under the sink that you can easily disconnect. If it's wired directly into the house wiring, you'll need to determine which breaker in your service panel to turn off so that you don't get mildly electrocuted or chop off a hand or something. Most disposals have a small hex-shaped allen bolt hole underneath that you find an allen wrench to put in and work the disposal back and forth by hand, that should free up whatever clogs are inside. Make sure you leave some sort of screen or stopper in the drain to stop silverware or random things from falling in that shouldn't fall in like tea bags, ends of onions, tomato stems, nut shells, things that may not "shred" easily. If you need to ultimately replace it, (which is rare and unlikely), you will need to ask a neighbor or someone handy to figure it out, because not to sound like a chauvinist, but most women technically CAN do most things men can, they just don't WANT to, or can be bothered to learn or whatever else, that's why guys fix stuff and women typically don't. Anyway, good luck, I'm sure it's just a little clogged with some junk that your hands can reach in and take back out, I REALLY wouldn't worry about it being broken, I'm pretty sure it's not.

Tip

Cleaning and preserving a garbage disposal


Once a week or so turn the tap on at the sink and turn the disposer on. Then drop a cup of ice in the disposer. The ice will remove any grime and build up and the water will wash it all down the drain.

How do I unjam it?


On the very bottom of the disposal there is a small opening in the very middle of the disposal. If you shine a light under the sink and put a mirror down on the inside of the cabinet you should be able to see this. You'll need an Allen wrench to put in the 6 sided hex hole and turn counter clockwise until the disposal turns freely. This should unjam your disposal. Don't forget you may have to hit the small reset button on the bottom too.

I need help on food disposer


The motor is stuck. Use the allen wrench that came with unit and insert into spot under neath the unit and see if you can unstick it.

If not successful unit needs to be replaced since it is frozen solid and will not turn nor grind.

How to fix a stuffed garbage disposal?


It should have come with a Allen wrench. Be sure it is off. Insert it in the bottom into the center hole. Move it back and forth several times until it frees up. Remove wrench and try, you may have to do this several times. Also be sure the unit is reset before turning on. If it does nothing nor makes nay noise it is probably tripped.
