Jam-Buster Wrench is rated out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Momo1979 from I DID IT! felt like a major accomplishment. Garbage disposal wasn't working for about a month before I decided to google the question, "how to fix a garbage disposal" and watched a YouTube video to learn about this tool. I was skeptical, but it did the tricked! Initially, I needed to use more force than thought to turn it back and forth, but once I was able to go back and forth easily the disposal worked. I didn't order from this site but bought it from Home Depot($7.57) in person.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jayfay from bought "universal key" to unjamb my garbage disposer, Insinkerator brand, and it doesn't fit. Bought a "universal key" for my Insinkerator garbage disposal to unjamb it, but it doesn't fit. It's too small. Must now call the company to get it replaced. Bummer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by randybill from Replacement and an upgrade Had a badger disposal that died after 7 years of use. New disposal claimed it was quieter and looked it judging by the thicker insulation around it. Installation was easy since a badger disposal had already been installed. I do hope they include a longer 90 degree discharge pipe in the future. The discharge pipe that was included was almost too short!! This disposal is very quiet and claims to have more power. The insulation surrounding the unit along with the ruber mounting system i'm sure helps. Happy with my purchase. I installed this about 4 weeks ago. I'm expecting this disposal to last longer than the badger that I had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JimB62 from Simple tool made for the job worked perfectly! Ordered the self service wrench for about 6 dollars with free shipping. I was not hopeful this would solve the problem because the disposal was firmly stuck. Used the wrench which is designed to fit easily into the bottom of the disposal. It took some force but it freed the disposal which is working just fine. Worth the first try for a frozen disposal.

How do you find answers to the (very good) questions above without asking the same questions over and over, again?
Publishing the Allen wrench size would be a great service to your customer base.
Hilda: If you click to the left of the question, you'll see the answer or answers. InSinkerator answered every question preceding yours, providing the size of the wrench in at least five of those answers. In addition, they also offered to send a replacement Jam-Buster Wrench—to any customer—free of charge!

Where to store the Jam-Buster Wrench between uses?
Is there a little clip or something on the side or bottom of the disposer to store this wrench in between uses? I do not anticipate needing it very often, so it will "wander away". I'd like to clip it right on the disposer so that when I need it, it is right there in front of me.
You could tape it to the inside of the cabinet door, or to a section of cabinet frame, closest to the disposer. (I don't recommend attaching it to the disposer itself, where it might cause a rattle—or fall off—due to vibration.)

Hums but does not turn. Nothing binding it.
The shaft can be turned freely with the wrench from the bottom, and the plate on the top can be turned freely by pushing with a screw driver. Obviously the reset button is retracted as power is going to the unit. Where else, what else, can be jammed?
I had the same problem with a Badger model. Here is what worked for me: I put about a tablespoon of vegetable oil in the disposal and then used a hex wrench in the bottom socket to turn the disposal mechanism back and forth several times to lubricate it. This made it turn much more freely. I then turned on the disposal and it worked. We had been gone for several weeks and live in a very dry climate which I believe caused it to stick.

jam-buster won't fit
My InSinkErator won't work and only making humming sounds. I have my own jam-buster wrench and found out it won't fit. The bottom of the InSinkErator has a roundish hole, not hexagon. How do you do it. Thanks. Key
1/4 wrench didn't work for me either. I ended up using a 6mm wrench and it worked great.
