If the leak is coming from the bottom of the disposal check the sink connection, drain connection, and housing gasket. If you find these are all good and you can see the water is definitely coming from the disposal itself and not from any of these connections, then the internal seal in the disposal is bad and will need to be replaced. If the disposal is over a few years old then it is more than likely best to just replace the unit. Not cost effective to have it repaired.

Kitchen aid kadette 250

with the power "off", check inside the unit to make sure nothing is jammed in there. assuming the interior is clear, try the reset button which is usually located on the bottom of the unit. may need to use a mirror and a flashlight to locate it. if the unit hums (indicating power is there) but it does not rotate/turn/work, use your "disposal key" or a hex wrench to turn it manually: usually inserts on the bottom-middle of the unit; turn it both ways to free it up.

Kitchenaid kadette 250 1/2 hp won't turn on.

Try turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, pushing the reset button firmly on the bottom of the disposer, and checking to make sure it's not jammed and rotates freely. If it is jammed you can put a disposer wrench or allen wrench in the hole in the bottom and rotate the shaft to free it. There might already be a wrench under your sink for that.

Removing knockout from KitchenAid Kadette 250 disposer

Hi, You need to punch out the plug from the outside. The plug will fall into the disposal and you can reach in to remove it.
I use a small screw driver and punch through the plug in a few spots to weaken the plug. This will allow the plug to release easier.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Kitchenaid Kadette hums and does not run

Mine does this when it is clogged, one time my daughter cleaned out the fish take and filled the disposal with pebbles. You should have recieved an Allen wrench with the unit. You will be able to put the Allen wrench in the bottom of the unit and turn the disposal manualy, this should break loose any jammed blades.

Remove the hose from the disposal, take a hammer and long screw driver, put it in the hole where the hose attaches and knock the plug out. Turn power off to the disposer and pull the plug out of the disposer. Hope this helps.
