My garbage disposal won’t work. How can I fix it?
Turn off your garbage disposal and try reaching your hand into the drain to see if there is an object lodged in your disposal. Sometimes utensils, children’s medication syringes, hard pits from fruit, or another solid object may be preventing the blades from turning. If this does not work, try the circuit breaker connected with the disposal. Another option is to open up the cabinet below your sink and try tripping the reset button. This is usually a bright red button located on the underside of the disposal. Disposals are plugged into an outlet, so you can also try testing the outlet with another appliance to see if it is dead. When none of these tactics work, call a Kennesaw plumber for further assistance.

If you own a toilet plunger, try that first. Place the rubber end of the plunger over the drain in your toilet and try pumping swiftly to propel air and water into the pipes.

This may cause water overflow, resulting in a messy pool of sewage on your bathroom floor. Instead, we suggest you call A-Total Plumbing and let us take a look at the problem.
