HOW TO FIX MINOR GARBAGE DISPOSAL CLOGS
Not every garbage disposal jam requires a call to a plumber! If your disposal stops working, there are a few things you can try before you pick up the phone.
The bottom of your garbage disposal should have a RESET button. If the motor jams, turn the disposal off and wait a few minutes, then firmly press this button.
If this doesn’t work, check and see if your disposal can be unjammed from the bottom. There should be a small, hexagonal hole where an Allen key can fit – turning this will allow you to turn the flywheel and attempt to dislodge the clog.
If you still can’t get your disposal to work, or if the problem is a leak instead of a clog, don’t worry – just Atlas Services, we will be out that day to fix your garbage disposal as soon as possible.
