Having a garbage disposal is a major convenience when cooking and cleaning up after enjoying a nice meal. If your disposal is backed up, your sink can easily fill up with water and cause you to have a hard time in the kitchen.
For many homeowners, it can be an easy repair to fix your garbage disposal. Try clearing the jammed disposal by unplugging the unit or turning off the circuit breaker than serves it. Use the reset button or a hex wrench on the underside to loosen up the stuck garbage disposal. Look under the sink at the bottom of the disposal for a hex-shaped hole and use a wrench to open up the area. It gets tricky when a sink doesn’t have a hex-shaped hole to loosen up, and some homeowners choose to use a broom to force down the blades and rotate the impeller back and forth.
