Odor From Disposer:

Over time, food particles may accumulate in the grind chamber and baffle. An odor from the disposer is usually a sign of food buildup, caused by insufficient water flow during and after disposer use. To clean disposer:

  • Turn off disposer and disconnect power supply.
  • Reach through sink opening and clean underside of splash baffle and inside upper lip of grind chamber with scouring pad.
  • Place stopper in sink opening and fill sink halfway with warm water.
  • Mix a one pound box of baking soda with water. Turn disposer on and remove stopper from sink at same time to wash away loose particles.

Disposers may also be cleaned with Disposer Care®. This product is not sold by InSinkErator, but is generally available in major home centers, hardware, and grocery stores. For more information on Disposer Care - True Value items click #1 or #2 product 

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 automatically.

Wrench and ResetMake sure that the disposer's switch is in the off position.

The overload 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 again.

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.

Wrench and ResetInsert 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.

F.Y.I. - like any appliance, garbage disposals, dishwashers, ice makers in fridge, etc.  - Ed Young's Plumbing does not work on the appliance itself (no plumbing co. should) - we install them, hook them up, unblock etc. - another words we do the plumbing side of the job.  - Otherwise we would void warranties (not good).
