Customer Question

Hey Russ my sink is backing up. I think it's the disposal. I tried the reset button and even got a vacuum since last time it wouldn't go down because some pebbles fell inside from the fish bowl and it affected the disposal. I can hear the disposal working and it spins and all but the water just spits back up. What can it be ?

Hello from JA

I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

Is this a single sink or more then one basin sink that the disposal is mounted on?

Have you tried to plunge the sink with a plunger?
