: When I turn on my garbage disposal it won't even turn on. My child accidentally turned the garbage disposal on without the water running and now it doesn't work. I heard it buzz first and then it wouldn't turn on. How do I fix it?
K. Look for a red reset button underneath the disposal. It may need to be pushed in to reset it. I hopr he did not sieze the motor. You can take a 1/4" or 3/8 allen wrench and on the underside of the disposal there is a place to put the wrench and manually try to free it. Dale's Plumbing Service LMP
