Jiggling Down Under

I fixed my stupid garbage disposal. I hate the garbage disposal because it's too easy to break and you have to run it every few days it even if you don't use it or it will get gummed up. So the other day I turned it on and a small ceramic dish was down in it. I turned it off immediately and got all the shards I could out, but the stupid thing wouldn't run anymore. When I turned the switch on, it would just make a subdued hum and it wouldn't spin.

So I looked online and found out that there is a hole in the bottom of the disposal where you can put an Allen wrench in and turn the grinder by hand. So I bought a set of Allen wrenches and jiggled the grinder from below. It took a bit of work, but I got it to spin and now it runs just fine.

Go me!
