Okay — you’ve fished the spoon out of the garbage disposal, but now the disposal won’t turn on. Don’t grind your teeth yet. When your disposal jams, it often automatically shuts off, and may not re-start by using the wall switch. Many homeowners don’t know there is a reset button, located at the bottom of the unit. After safely removing any foreign objects from the disposal, one touch of this button could save you an unnecessary repair bill.
