Sometimes when your garbage disposal stops working, all it needs is a simple reset! Safety tip – please be sure to never stick your hand down inside your garbage disposal. Instead, follow these simple steps:
Step 1. Turn off the garbage disposal. This is typically an electrical switch under your sink or nearby. Check to see if there’s an electric plug for this switch. If that somehow came unplugged from the outlet, that could be your problem!
Step 2. Once your disposal is turned off, press the reset button. This is typically a red button located on the underside of your garbage disposal.
Step 3. Once this button has been reset, turn the water on cold and turn your garbage disposal back on. Your garbage disposal should now be running properly!
