Make no mistake about it, when a garbage disposal stops working it can bring a kitchen and its family to a screeching halt. We take it for granted using it once or twice a day, maybe more. It gobbles up kitchen waste. When it ceases to do that you have to collect the mess and put it out for the trash pick-up. No one needs that!
Here are some DIY tips when that important appliance is troubled –
1. Make sure there is still power going to the unit by flipping the switch.
2. If the power is on, then it may be clogged.
3. Reconnect the power and run water down the drain.
