Regarding a RESET BUTTON:
Your InSinkErator disposer is equipped with a device called an overload
protector. This device will turn the disposer off automatically if there is
something wrong. If the disposer is jammed, if it is run for a very long period
of time, or if there is something wrong with the disposer, it will shut down
that the disposer's switch is in the off position.
protector is located under the sink, on the bottom of the disposer, facing the
floor. It is a red square button. If the overload protector has tripped, you
will see the red button dropped down about a quarter of an inch (5mm). Gently
press the red button. If it does not stay up, wait ten minutes and try
If the red button still will not stay in, or the disposer requires repeatedly
resetting the overload protector, the disposer may require service. If the
disposer is covered by warranty and the problem is due to a defect in materials
or workmanship, InSinkErator will pay to have an authorized service center
service the disposer in your home at no charge to you.
Disposer makes an unusual noise:
Each InSinkErator disposer is shipped with a self-service wrench. The wrench
is silver colored, and shaped like a little crank, about four inches long. If
you can not find the service wrench, you can use a standard 1/4 inch Allen
wrench, or click here to have one sent to you by mail.
Make certain that the disposer's switch is in the off position.
the wrench into the hole at the bottom of the disposer. The hole is located
under the sink, at bottom of the disposer, dead center, facing the floor. Use
the wrench like a crank.
Work the wrench back and forth in both directions. If the wrench will not
turn easily, it is OK to use some force. The wrench is designed to bend before
any damage is done to the disposer.
Continue working with the wrench
until it turns freely in complete circles in both directions.
Check inside the disposer's grinding chamber. Look down into the disposer
using a flashlight. Do not place your hand into the disposer. Pay special
attention to the area around the outer edge of the disposer's shredding disk
where you see the little teeth. If you see anything in the disposer, remove it
using tongs or pliers.
Turn on the water, then the disposer. The disposer should now run quietly. If
it continues to make unusual noise, you may need service.
If the problem with your disposer is due to defects in materials or
workmanship, InSinkErator will pay to have an authorized service center service
the disposer in your home at no charge to you. If the disposer is jammed on a
non-food, foreign object, you will be responsible for the cost of service.
