If the garbage disposal makes no noise when you turn it on
There is a red reset button on the very bottom of every garbage disposal. Once located press the red reset button and test the disposal for proper operation.
If the garbage disposal is not spinning
This means that the motor is not able to spin. The first thing to do is place a ¼ inch Allen wrench into the center hole on the bottom of the garbage disposal. (an Allen wrench should have come with the disposal). Turn the wrench in a clockwise motion until it spins freely.
