Jammed Garbage Disposal

If your disposal hums but doesn't grind when you switch it on, something is probably stuck inside.
1) Shut it off, then push the reset button or the reversing switch on the bottom of the unit.
2) Newer disposals often have a hexagonal fitting for an Allen wrench on the bottom. Insert the wrench and turn it back and forth to free the mechanism.
3) If something has been put in the disposal that shouldn't have—such as metal, rubber, glass, or fibrous food waste such as artichoke leaves or banana peels—use tongs or pliers to pull the material out. NEVER USE YOUR HAND!
4) If all this fails, call Perez Plumbing, Inc., and we will take care of your disposer difficulties.
