About the least dangerous way of cleaning it out would be with a vacuum cleaner. You may have to break the glass up a bit to get the pieces small enough to pull into the hose or perhaps use the suction to hold the pieces to pull out of the unit. Last resort would be to remove the unit from below the sink and invert it to remove the glass. You would have to disconnect plumbing to do this, but it might be the only thing you can do. You could also find tools used to pick up dropped parts that operate with a claw at the end. They are about 18-24 inches long and certainly small enough to fit into the drain. You can get them at home stores for less than $10.

    Broken shot glass, got most of the pieces out with a tool like he mentioned, but it was still jammed. I did a search for the model of my disposal and broken glass and found this site where I saw the vacuum idea. I got my wet/dry shop vac and sucked up 3 larger pieces that I had missed, and of course smaller pieces, and when I tried it, it turned! I then sucked up any more that might have still been there and now it works perfectly! Great idea! I thought I was going to have to take it apart!

Get a New Iphone 5.... All kidding aside, there are many repair shops that are popping up all over MALLS and around cities that you can find by going on-line. Monday, my friend John had the same issue and we went and had his repaired and his broken glass replaced for a grand total of $25 (including the glass) in Providence Rhode Island.

My VW passat 2001 model has passenger door electric window stuck. I can hear the motor running on the door. How can I fix this problem.

The window regulator or plastic tabs attached to the glass is likely broken and will need to be replaced, if you can hear the motor running but the glass does not move. If you're handy with fixing cars, you can purchase a window regulator and change it out fairly easily by removing the door panel and swapping the regulator out. If the plastic tabs on the glass are broken, you will have to take it to an auto glass shop to have new tabs replaced on the glass.

I need to know how to install the mirror glass on 2007 tahoe on passenger side and the housing is in good shape I only had the glass to break.

The new mirror glass simply "Sticks" or sometimes "Glues" into place. The trick is getting the old glass off without destroying the mechanism that it is stuck to. Carefully use a flat blade screwdriver to pry the gum/glue under the glass to get all the broken pieces of glass out. Be careful not to pry in such a way that the plastic frame that it sticks to gets pried forward because you will strip the gears that hold it in place.

Broken Qtr, Glass How do I replace it?

You will have to remove the trim around the glass and clean up every piece of broken glass. Then, scrape all the sealant material and remaining broken glass stuck on the frame and put new sealant material on the frame. Lastly, replace the trim and place a few pieces of tape to temporarly hold the glass on, while the sealant cures. Sounds easy enough but it can inflict lots of cuts and scrapes as well as become messy. Good luck.

My glass top has a broken in the corner on my jgp932 cooktop range can i just get the glass top replaced and can i do it myself

I'm sorry to hear this. you can get just the top, but your lookingat somewhere between 300-700 dollars just for the glass. also this is not a common part and will probably be back ordered, so you'll be looking at a wait of 2-5weeks for the part. you can change it yourself but due to the cost of the glass I would have a service company change it so that if it breaks while changing they will have to pay for a second one and you wouldn't be stuck having 2 broken glasses

Keeps stating remove paper from platen glass before copying when trying to use the feeder. Nothing on the platen glass.

First you must lift the dadf all way up, because (from front looking) on left side under /by dadf hinge is white flap.This flap registers the lifting and pulling down of dadf.Probably is only that.
...but check if its broken or stuck,...

Or you have broken sensor or some part in sensors, or piece of paper, or similar in dadf
