If your garbage disposal quits running, hit the red reset button located on the bottom of the garbage disposal. If this doesn’t work, and the garbage disposal just hums, it is jammed and the blades are locked up.
Do NOT use any caustic drain cleaner on the garbage disposal side of the sink. This will cause damage to the disposal. A helpful tip to remember if your garbage disposal is emitting a foul odor; put a cup or two of ice cubes down the disposal with no water running, and turn it on to grind. This will help remove food particles and other build up from the sides of the garbage disposal. The most important tip to remember is to turn off the switch to the disposal, use tongs and not your hand to get items out of the garbage disposal.
