Oh my god… I worked so hard on my garbage disposal, took 5 hours out of my day and I’m a broke college students so a plumber wasn’t an option. Finally stumbled across your video and it was sooo easy and works perfectly. Thank you so much!!!!

After HOURS of trying to fix my disposal from the bottom of the equipment with an Allen wrench (from other videos), I found your video and I fixed it in under 5 minutes!!! Thank you, Kind Sir!!!🙌🏾

What a pleasure! Worked almost right away. I had thoroughly cleaned out the inside of the disposal – rubber band, spones, egg bad😵. And then used your method. Thanks, never too old to learn new tricks–73 year old.

Well, the witch’s brew method worked for one cycle. Let it run for a solid two minutes. Motor got super hot so I turned it off. Nothing restarted. Dead. Not hum. No popped breaker. No popped reset button. Nada! I guess it’s time for a new one. Crappy thing is it’s hardlined power supply might be over my head for a DIY. :/ thx for the hope though!

Tina Ward says:

Hi, Roger, I tried the plunger handle and it will spin but it still will not work. I checked the reset button. I unplugged it and plugged it back in again. I stuck the Allen wrench into the bottom of it and spun it around but still nothing. It did seem to hum louder than it did when I spun it around with the Allen wrench but that still didn't make it work again. It seems like it wants to work but it won't. I was literally using it one minute and the next minute it just quit on me? Is there anything that I can do? I felt inside and didn't feel anything hanging it up. It's empty.
