Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. i will be glad to help you today. Does it sound like something is still in the blades or just noisy? If there is nothing in it but it seems to be noisy still try putting a bunch of ice cubes down it and grind the ice cubes up. That should get the blades back in place and get it cleaned out and quiet. Let me know if that helps.
