: I know all the tricks to unstick a disposal. I've used them all. That's not my problem. My disposal runs, but won't chew up the waste. Is there an answer to my problem? The blades seem to be very loose and wobble back and forth.
The blades you describe sound more like the lugs that through the waste to the grinding ring. If its an In Sink Erator those lugs are suppose to wobble. The grind ring runs around the whole diameter of your disposal and the waste is ground (not cut)there. I have felt these rings and they are not sharp. You may have some material wedged in the grind ring. I would try grinding some small beef bones to dislodge any material.
