Don’t run out and buy a new garbage disposal yet.
There are a couple things that can cause an interruption in your garbage disposal service that don’t mean it’s completely destroyed.
First, turn the disposal off, disconnect it from the power and check to see if something is jamming it (a spoon or any other hard object).
If you don’t find anything, plug it back in and try to press the RESET button to fix it.
Finally, check the breaker switch in your breaker box.
If all else fails, contact us.
