  • 1. Grind ice cubes to help maintain your unit. Grinding a few ice cubes once a month will help sharpen your unit’s blades and clear away waste that’s stuck on the walls of your disposal.
  • 2. Don’t use drain cleaners on your disposal. The chemicals in drain cleaners can damage your disposal. If you have a clog, give a Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical NJ plumber a call or try the step below to fix it instead.
  • 3. Hand-crank the disposal to break up jams. One of the best ways to fix disposal jams to stick an Allen wrench in the slot at the bottom of your unit and manually crank the blades to free it up.
  • 4. Don’t forget about the reset button. If your disposal is acting up, check and see if the reset button at the bottom of the unit has tripped. If it’s popped out, press it back down and try running it again.
  • 5. Exercise caution when retrieving something from your disposal. If you accidentally drop something down your disposal, be very careful when trying to retrieve it. Make sure your unit is unplugged before attempting anything and try grabbing the object with pliers or a bent coat hanger instead of your hand.
