So What Causes Garbage Disposal Clogs?
Even garbage disposals that are taken care of properly can sometimes get clogged. If you dispose of greases, fats, meats, or other fibrous materials such as vegetable peels, they are more likely to get clogged over time. In addition, some foods are hard on the garbage disposals motor and can cause immediate jamming of the unit. If this happens turn off the unit before more damage occurs. This could trigger a back up of the garbage disposal that can create a mess and stink in the kitchen sink.

How to Fix a Garbage Disposal or Dishwasher
If your garbage disposal unit gets overloaded, sometimes you can simply push the reset button to get it started again. Before you push the reset button it is a good idea to give it a few minutes to cool down first. The reset button is usually located underneath the unit or somewhere towards the bottom. If that does not work, Rooter-Man is available for fast and emergency plumbing and drain cleaning services 24/7.
Besides clogging and jamming, some other problems that you may encounter with your garbage disposal include:
