What a dork!!!!
So, a few weeks ago my garbage disposal broke. My3babies had tried to grind up 2 syringes (not on purpose of course!). It made a grinding, crunching noise and then went silent...there was also a smokey smell. That was that. No action when you hit the switch. I was bummed.
So, for about 3 weeks we've been dealing with no garbage disposal. With all these cats, we end up throwing away a lot of wet food. Usually it goes down the GD...but since it's been broken, I've been putting it in ziploc bagies and tossing them. So...either way, it's been annoying.
Today, I finally decided to do something about it. I spent about 2 hours researching GDs and how to install them, comparing prices and looking for deals. I finally decided on a 3/4hp Kenmore...and decided that I had better make sure it was an upgrade (wasn't sure what hp I had).
So, I go look under the sink...1/2hp...hey...what's this red button here...push it in...nothing happens...hmmm....turn on the water and hit the switch....and voila...working GD.
What a dork I am!
