Garbage disposals are very useful appliances that also endure heavy use. For this reason, they are susceptible to damage.

In this video, you will learn some basic troubleshooting tips for your garbage disposal. For example, if you turn on your disposal and hear a humming, it means the disposal is most likely jammed. To fix the jam, take an Allen wrench and use it to probe the disposal to see if you can free up the material. Then, you can check the sink itself to see if you dislodged anything. If you have a water leak beneath the sink, you need to call a professional plumber.
