Customer Question

KCDS075T disposal has worked well for past 2 years but would not turn on today. I checked circuit breaker (was on) then removed switch and connected wires, still won't turn on. Also used provided wrench but there was no blockage. Can't find a reset button but hard to reach all around it. Any suggestions?

There actually is a reset button under the bottom of the disposal. Attached below is a picture to show you where it's located. Other than that, if that doesn't work and the disposal isn't jammed you'll need to confirm the disposal is getting power from your house. If that all checks good, it's time for a new disposal because the motor has failed I'm sorry to say.
