If you open the cabinet door under the sink, you should be able to see the disposer motor. On the bottom or side, there should be a small bump that is the reset button. Push the button in and it should work again.
If it still does not work, make sure that the power cord is plugged into the outlet.
Still not working? Check the fusebox for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
One last idea: if the outlet that the disposal is plugged into is a GFCI protected plug, there will be a TEST and RESET button in the center of the outlet. Unplug the disposal cord, press the RESET button on the outlet, then plug the disposal cord back in.
your mixer has a specific wattage that it is rated for, If the mixer trips the breaker at your panel try using another outlet in your house to make sure that it is the mixer and not the outlet socket. Then you need to try your brushes depending on age and use of the mixer they may be exhausted and a higher wattage draw may be causing the breaker to trip, if the brushes have at least 3/8th inch of black carbon left on them then sadly it is the motor, you probably need a new armature or a new winding or both, which would be a complete motor at that point. If it is the motor parts then the repair will require a FULL tear down at which time you may as well clean it up completely and add new gear grease and a new motor gasket while you are at it. .
If the mixer died completely and no noise at all comes from the machine you need one of three things. 1. New brushes2. new speed control switch3. a new motor.
The KP26 is a 6 quart mixer of the new design, post 2002, it is easy to work on and relatively inexpensive for parts if it turns out to be the motor that will be about $100.00, the speed control about 30.00, the brushes on this mixer cannot be replaced you have to install a new motor, sry about that. Hope this helps let us know. But first check that the electric outlet you are working from has not tripped the breaker on the circuit too. I know I know it's silly to say but check the outlet first before you spend a dime on anything.
you need to replace the gfci,the older gfci's interpret these frequencies as a shock hazard and shut off power to the circuit.you can buy @hobart, part#913053, that should solve the trip problem. dont forget to vote thanks monomoy
