Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved $$$ not having to call serviceman! I shattered a shot glass not knowing it was in the disposal and when I finally got all the shards out, the disposal was broken (or so I thought). The motor made a humming sound but that's it, I tried the reset button and still nothing. After googling I came across this handy little gadget. What a lifesaver! I was about to pay $200 for a service call...I'm soooooo glad I tried this first! A few cranks back and forth and voila...back to new! Thank you thank you thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, it does work! This totally made my day! While my husband was asleep in the recliner, I fixed the garbage disposal with this tool. Reading the previous reviews was very helpful. I had to push the reset button, and I did use the vegetable oil on my second try. The garbage disposal now works...Thank You!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A tool that works! What can I say? It works! Easily did the job just as it was supposed to do. And It arrived promptly. Maybe this tool isn't the only reason to buy this brand of garbage disposal, but they did design a product that can easily be un-jammed with this simple tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The jam-buster does what it's supposed to do. I just bought a condo and the disposer was working fine. Maybe 2 months later (I guess from non-use) I try to use it and it doesn't spin, all I hear is a noise. I tell myself "man, it's always something." I did an online search for help and came across this site, purchased the product, and baammm...problem solved. But don't be like me and try to do it bear-handed (wasn't thinking...too eager to try). It was pretty stuck and took a little effort; unfortunately when it budged my hand got scraped on something under the sink. But the jam was removed and the best part is that the disposer works again...no calls...just remember to wear gloves for safety measures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Tool! Works like a charm! Our disposal is from 1997 and is running smoothly after just a few turns :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job A shot glass accidentally fell into the insinkerator and shards of glass got stuck under the cutting blades, jamming it completely. This wrench allowed me to easily loosen it -- problem solved!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wrench=problem solved. The jam-buster worked as advertised. It literally took me 30 seconds to fix my disposal. The tool is dummy proof. Thank you.

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?

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Hi, this is Jerica from InSinkErator Customer Service. 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 cannot find the service wrench, you can use a standard 1/4 inch Allen wrench. If you do not have your self-service wrench, and would like one, please let us know and we would be happy to send it out at no charge. You may send your complete contact information to [email protected] or call InSinkErator AnswerLine at 1 (800) 558-5700. Thank you.

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.

Answer: 
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.)
