1: What kind of items can I put down my disposer?
All types of food waste can be put down your disposer such as vegetable peels, fibrous materials, small bones, fruit pits, etc. Make sure when you do grind materials that you run lots of water through the sink after the grinding process has been completed. Items that you SHOULD NOT put down your disposer include large whole bones, clams, oyster shells, whole corn husks, glass, china, plastic, bottle caps, tin, aluminum foil, utensils, caustic drain cleaner, hot grease, or other hot liquids.

2: How do I know if my disposer is jammed?
Your disposer is jammed if you hear a humming or buzzing noise every time you turn it on.

3: How do I un-jam my disposer?
To unjam the unit you first need to shut off its power.  Depending on your model and wiring configuration you can unplug the power cord from the wall or turn the breaker box switch to the off position.  Next, remove the stopper and/or splashguard.  Check to see if the turntable will rotate freely by using a wooden broom or mop handle.  Place the handle down the disposer and use one of the two impellers to put force on the turntable.  Keep in mind it is not the impellers that need to be moving freely, you are just using the impellers to put force onto the turntable.  If the turntable rotates freely, replace splashguard and check the reset button to see if it has been tripped.  Push the button in until it clicks and remains depressed.  If reset button has not been tripped, check for a short or broken wire connection to the disposer, electrical power switch, fuse box, or circuit breaker.  If the wiring and electrical components are intact, the unit may have internal problems that require service or replacement.

4: Where is the reset button located on my disposer?
The reset button is located near the bottom of the unit, opposite side of the power cord.  It is a red button inside an indentation.  Depending on how you have the disposer installed will determine whether you can see the reset button or not.
