They don't work garbage want my money back


Robert,
Garbage disposals are not designed to take ALL of your garbage... and DO NOT use one if you are on a septic system!!
If it is not working, check for voltage to the switch, from the switch to the disposal,,if you have voltage to the disposal, some have a reset on the disposal..

Garbage disposal wont run, power is on. Reset button pushed, not jammed.


Here's a video AKLILEABRAHA suggested as a solution to your problem from YouTube:

Garbage disposal won't stop running


Check switch. replace switch. If switch checks out, then replace disposal to avoid risk of overheating and in-wall short.

Garbage disposal


My checklist for garbage disposals:
(1) most disposals have a little red RESET switch on the bottom. Once the impeller will turn manually, press the reset button, and you may get back full operation.

(2) 120 Volt wall switch may have burned out. They're only rated for 100,000 operations before they burn out.
(3) If the impeller is difficult to turn, you may try to use an "flywheel wrench", which is just an offset Allen wrench that fits into the bottom of the motor, and can be used to turn the flywheel manually, freeing the impeller and allowing the reset to work.
(4) The circuit breaker in the breaker panel in the basement may have tripped, cutting power to the switch controlling the garbage disposal. If tripped, turn off the switch to the disposal and reset the breaker.
(5) Disposal motor may have died.

This How-To seems like a nice one:
