Garbage Disposal Not Working? It is probably Jammed!


If your garbage disposal suddenly stopped working then it probably just has a jam in the disposal. If this is the case then you are in luck, because a jam is usually very quick and easy to fix.

If you know that there is no way that there could be a jam and want to just try resetting the disposal then proceed to step five, but I do not recommend that unless you are certain.
