Electrical Tips and
Garbage Disposal Power
garbage disposal stops working you should:
1. Clear out
anything inside the garbage disposal which might be jamming the motor
and stopping it from working properly. TAKE EXTRA CAUTION WHEN REACHING
INSIDE THE MECHANISM. UNPLUG THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL FIRST.
flip on the switch to the garbage disposal. Do you hear a humming noise?
If you do, then there is power going to the disposal and the problem may
be that the disposal is either jammed or broken.
3. If you
turn on the switch to the garbage disposal and you do not hear any
humming noise, locate the small button that is somewhere on the disposal
and press it to reset the disposal. Then try running the disposal to see
if that corrected the problem.
try resetting all the circuit
breakers in your
electrical panel to see if you can get power back.
