Q:

Garbage Disposal sounds like its working but doesn't grind

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

According to the use and care guide the disposal has a seven year (7) full warranty. For the duration of the warranty from the date of purchase, Sears will repair or replace, free of charge, defects in material or workmanship which appear in this disposal.

I would assume that either the cutting blades are not slinging outwards because they are stuck and can't pivot or the nut used to hold and fasten the rotating shredder assembly to the motor shaft has come loose and has rounded out causing the shredder assembly to freewheel and not have any torque or power to grind/chop food. If your disposal is over 7 years old, it would not be worth the effort or money to attempt to repair it. You would be better off replacing it.

You can have it repaired/replaced at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
