In Response To: garbage disposal (horace brown)

You have something stuck in the mutching blades.

On most garbage disposers there is a place to put an allen wrench on the end of the shaft on the bottom of the motor.

Using the wrench, give it a good hard turn back and forth until it turns freely DO NOT TURN THE DISPOSAL ON DURING THIS.

If your disposal doesn't have a place for the allen wrench try prying the blades using a broom handle (It's what my dad used to do years ago) from the top of the sink. Once you get the motor spinning freely, remove all the tools and give it a try..... Good Luck! Rick
