Kenmore Garbage Disposal

4 posts in this topic

I dont know if my disposal is jam or is out for the count. I tried cleaning the blade area, reset the button on the bottom, turning the screw at the botton to left and right. It tries to come back on but it turns then stops. Should I take it off to clear the jam? Also the bottom plate where the blades are attached too looks to be spinning unevenly maybe causing this problem. Well I hope you all can help me out.

Thanks!

if the grinding disc has come loose,you'll need a replacement blade and seal kit,chances are also good that the liner in the upper bell has become swelled- bottom line is,probably $150.00 or more for repair- these units are rarely economical to repair anymore- replace with new one,or better yet,seal up the sink and throw your trash into the garbage istead of the sink- aren't you afraid of blocking the plumbing drains on your property ???
