Repairing a broken or damaged garbage disposal unit can be often dangerous and difficult. The problem can either be something electrical or it could be something to do with a worn out part, such as the motor or cutting blade.
To determine what the issues are, first identify if the unit making any unusual sounds. After you test the unit, determine whether it’s the switch that is faulty or the actual unit itself needs replacing. Sometimes the problem is with the breaker or fuse not being turned on.
The repair of the unit may only require a new switch because the old one has become faulty and cannot turn on the disposal. If you have tried turning the Garbage Disposal Unit off and on and tried the reset switch then it’s time for a replacement and completely new unit.
