If your garbage disposal is not grinding it does not always need to be replaced. Below is a list of several things to check before calling your friendly neighborhood Greenville plumbers at KT Plumbing.
- The #1 reason most garbage disposals stop working is because they need to be reset. To reset your disposal look for a red or black reset button on the garbage disposal motor and then just push to reset it. Also make sure the garbage disposal is plugged into the wall outlet and ensure the outlet has power.
- The next thing to check is for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
- You may not know this but most garbage disposals can be hand cranked. Look for a hole underneath the disposal and use an Alan wrench or a garbage disposal tool to crank it. Most jams that are not too bad can be cleared this way.
If you find that you have tried these steps and your disposal is still not working, Give KT Plumbing a call at 864-663-6105 and one of our plumbers will come out and fix or replace your garbage disposal.
