Disposal loud.


Replaced my garbage disposal only about 6 months ago and it sounds like its flying apart. The old one did too. Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot

Have you remover it and cleaned out the insides? Most often the racket is caused by some foreign object ----pennies,screws and broken glass are frequent culprits.

No, I haven't removed it to check. I've only put my hand down there and felt around. Didn't find anything.

Thanks

My money is on a small spoon.

Remove.

Turn upside down.

Shake vigorously.

Collect whatever comes out.

Replace.

Repeat as necessary.
