How do I find my Garbage Disposal’s model number?
If your garbage disposal is more than a year old, it’s likely that the model number has been lost over time or forgotten. Garbage disposals have unique model numbers that can be found on the bottom of the unit. To find your model number, turn off your garbage disposal by unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and removing the drain stopper. Place your hand over the hole where water flows out of the disposal and look for a stenciled label that lists your model number. If you can’t find the label, search online for your unit’s model number.

Here are a few tips for determining if it is worth fixing your garbage disposal:
- -First, try turning off the power to the unit and plunging a broom or stick into the drain to see if it will start flowing. If it does, then the unit is most likely broken and needs to be replaced.
- -Next, reach down inside of the disposal and feel around for any obstructions. If you can find something blocking the blades or impellers, then that will also need to be cleaned out before repairs can be made.
- -Finally, use a digital scale to measure how much debris is build up inside of the unit. If the weight of debris is more than 2 cups, then it may be time for
