You receive a call from your renter, and they tell you the garbage disposal stopped working. How do you fix it?
- Verify that the garbage disposal is plugged in—it probably is, but is good to check.
- Check the reset button found on the bottom of the unit. If the machine has been reset, the button will be popped out and you will need to press it in.
- Examine your circuit breaker and make sure it has not been tripped.
- If you still don’t hear any noise and the garbage disposal won’t turn on, its time to call a service company. *Disclaimer: Never put your hand down the drain to repair a garbage disposal.
