Clean out with vacuum cleaner to remove stray parts etc

I have an Eastman garbage disposal model number 86703. It won't rotate. I don't know how to unjam it. Perry


Check on the bottom of the unit, the shaft usually goes all the way through and on the bottom has a socket you can put an allen wrench in to twist it. IF that is not the case, you can use a wooden broom handle through the opening in the sink as a lever to break loose any jams

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.

It will work but it sounds like metal is grinding in it.

Use vacuum cleaner to see if something is loose.
Otherwise, a noisy disposal that works is functional and not dangerous... but annoying.
Life of disposal is probably shortened since the bearing seal could have failed letting water in, and bearings could be rusted.
Replace disposal if noise bother you.

Motor just hums,grinder wedges are free, no leaks apparent,motor turns free in both directions.


yes there is start capacitor on each motor, connected to start winding.
There are two windings on each motor: start winding and run winding.
Both windings receive power at same time. If the start winding is bad, or capacitor is bad, then motor hums as the run winding receives power but there is not enough torque to get the motor rotating.
If motor is humming instead of rotating, then quickly the motor overheats and looses speed after repair or melts and fails.
The problem with disposal repair is getting the thing apart... finding replacement capacitor, or replacement parts, and then reassembling without a leak.

Replace garbage disposal shredder disc


Which direction does disposal blade turn?
For example when looking straight-on at the nut holding power saw blade, the blade rotates counterclockwise, so the nut is reverse thread.
Most disposals are not made for repairs

Garbage disposal runs but will not take garbage down


can you turn it on for me? I would like to see and hear whats going on to better help diagnose, more than likely the "blade" that spins has detached from the disposal motor assembly or the "blade" my be caught/stuck in place, to resolve this issue.
Unplug the disposal(should be plugged in under the sink)Grab a bucket to place under sink to catch waterremove the sink pipe assembly+disposal (remove the disposal)the water should drain into the bucket from the sink.remove and clean the disposal trap, looking for obstructions while you do so.after cleaning and searching for obstruction, reassemble the unit as it was making sure to reinstall all washers, guards and bolts, after you reassemble the unit plug it back in and test it, if you get the same results then there may be a strong possibility the unit suffers from a defect or damage in which case you may need to replace the whole unit or just part it all depends... good luck... more question just ask
