What type of wrench for flywheel of sinkmaster 401

My garbage disposal (a sinkmaster 401) won't turn on. I need to know what size hex wrench to use, and where the hole is for this -- I can't see it on the bottom of the disposal.

You need to replace it, installation should be straight forward, just amke sure you get the same model so you don't have to modify the plumbing ththat you have in place already. prices range from $90 to $250

How to unlock a Montgomery ward900 garbage disposal?


There should be a screw hole in the very middle of the bottom. It should be a 1/4" or 5/16 hex shaped hole for an Allen wrench.

Insert the wrench into the hole and then move it back and forth Until it spins easily.

Whatever is causing the drum to lock up should be extracted from inside before you run it again.

Be safe when you've got your hand in there.

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.
