How to Reset Your Garbage Disposal

Plumbing Service How-To Videos

Today we are going to look at this garbage disposal. Sometimes when you have a clogged sink or the disposal won’t turn on at the switch. There is actually a reset button on the bottom on the disposal. There is a little red button on the bottom of the disposal that sometimes will help you get your garbage disposer working again.

Follow these steps to reset your garbage disposer:

  1. Look for the small little red button on the bottom of the disposal. It’s very small.
  2. Push the reset button. You might hear it click.
  3. Try your disposer again to see it it’s working after reset.

Most of the time that reset button won’t work because the disposer is too old or too clogged or just needs to be replaced. Contact Garvin’s 24/7 for a custom quote.
