I have a KWS 200 disposal. It keeps jamming. I have to use

Customer Question

I have a KWS 200 disposal. It keeps jamming. I have to use a tool to turn the rotating grind wheel before the wham bammer will get it moving. The unjamming may last 1 day or a couple of weeks . Since my disposal is about 6 years old could it be that the magnestart is wearing out or what could it be?

Unfortunately if you have to keep breaking the disposal free, it means that your seals are going out and the bearings are rusting on the disposal. This isn't something you can repair I'm sorry to say. It's just time to start looking for a new disposal at this point. We are on the honor system here.
