Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
If you pull the U trap out and run water through the Disposal and it comes out of the pipe, then there is nothing wrong with the drainage through the disposal. It's not clogged. If it isn't running, there is a small red button on the bottom that is a circuit breaker. If the button is sticking out, push it and it will reset the breaker. Every thing else with the Disposal you did perfectly.
It appears to me as though there is a clog after the Trap. There are several ways to unclog it.
A small snake will do normally, unless the clog is far down the drain system, such as between the house and the sewage or septic system. I have used another device with a hose that is a rubber bulb shaped device that attaches to a garden hose at one end and has a **** at the other end. When you put it into a drain pipe and turn on the water, it inflates and anchors itself against the walls of the pipe that is clogged. Then it forces water down the pipe to remove the obstruction.
Here is a photo. You can find these at places like Harbor Freight, Home Depot, etc.
Hope this helps. Happy New Year, Mark
