Garbage Disposal Problems

garbage disposalWell, before you start solving any problem, I want you to promise me that you will obey the cardinal rule of “Repairing a Garbage Disposer”. That is, you will never put your hand in the hopper (down the drain at disposal)

That said, let’s take a look at the repair of this vital piece of kitchen equipment.

The crusher does not turn on (no noise)
If the crusher does not turn on and is not humming, then there is an electrical problem.

This may seem obvious, but make sure the garbage disposal is plugged in.
If connected, press the Reset button on the bottom of the unit. If it has been reset, the button will jump.

If that does not work, check if the circuit breaker has been tripped and turned off at the electrical service panel.

If the switch has not tripped and the reset button is not popped out, then it is a faulty switch or a defective trash crusher. First, locate the switch that powers the disposal unit. It should be located on the wall but maybe under the sink.

Turn off the switch on the service panel that feeds the shredder.
Replace switch.

Turn it back on at the service panel and check if the crusher is working.
If the crusher does not work and makes no noise, the trash crusher is beyond repair and needs to be replaced.

If you simply buy the best garbage disposal for the money then a lot of these problems can be avoided!

How to use a circular saw properly

The circular saw is the ideal tool for cutting wood over long lengths. The circular saw is the solution for quickly and efficiently cutting panels in solid wood, plywood, melamine, chipboard … It is a powerful power tool, more than 800 watts, which means beginners must be careful.

The principle of cutting is simple, a disc is rotated in a counterclockwise direction. The cutting is done by sharp teeth arranged around the circular blade. Like many top rated table saws, it is made to cut wood in thicknesses varying from 5 to 50 mm. It can cut larger thicknesses provided the motor is strong enough and the blade allows it.

Unlike the jigsaw, the circular saw is not suitable for cutting metal, glass or tiles.

Step 1: Choose a circular saw blade.

circ sawThere are mainly two types of blades:

-HSS high-speed steel blades

-Tungsten carbide blades.

The HSS blades are rather dedicated to the cutting of solid wood. Instead, we recommend that you use a stronger tungsten carbide saw that can cut both solid wood and plywood or melamine panels.

The most important differentiating criteria for comparing cutting discs are the number of teeth and the fineness of the tips: the finer the teeth and the smaller the pitch (many teeth), the more precise your cut.

To make sure that the blade fits perfectly into your machine, check the instructions for the diameter of the tool shaft and the maximum diameter of the discs compatible with your circular saw. With this information, you will be sure to choose a perfect blade.

Step 2: adjustment.

A circular saw offers two settings: height and angle of cut.

In order to obtain the most precise and cleanest possible cut, it is recommended to adjust the height so that the blade is greater than the thickness of the piece by 8 to 10 mm. A clamping screw on the rear of the tool allows you to make this adjustment. Place the blade at the edge of the cutting board to pick the right depth.

Step 3: General tips

You must always saw in good conditions to be able to get a clean cut

Always use a guide to ensure a straight cut. If the supplied guide is not large enough, use a clamp with guides. When carrying out measurements on the panel or workpiece, consider the thickness of the blade.

A circular saw must be well taken care of in order to limit the vibrations and possible deviations of the blade. Remember to never force the machine forward, you must allow it time to cut the material.

Keep the switch engaged until the end of the cut and until the protector returns to its place.

Electrician duties

Electricians usually dispose, assemble, install, verify, repair and repair wires and electrical appliances, control devices and related equipment in buildings and other structures. They work for electrical contractors and in building and other facility maintenance services, or they may be self-employed.


Fields of interest

-Making, building, repairing and installing
-Testing or testing, controlling processes
-Work for themself
-Working manually

Main duties

-Electricians in this unit group perform some or all of the following duties:
– reading and interpreting circuit diagrams, circuit diagrams and descriptive specifications of the electricity code in order to determine the layout of wiring in various new or existing buildings;
– pass the cable through ducts and through walls and floors;
– install brackets and brackets on which electrical equipment is mounted;
– installing, replacing and repairing lighting devices and electrical control and distribution equipment, such as switches, relays and circuit breakers;
– splicing, joining and connecting cables to devices and components to establish circuits;
– conduct continuity tests to ensure compatibility and safety of the circuits, after installation, replacement or repair, using appropriate instruments;
– Troubleshoot and isolate faults in electrical and electronic systems, and remove and replace faulty components;
– connect the power supply to audio and audio-visual communication devices, signaling devices and heating and air-conditioning equipment;
– carry out preventive maintenance programs and maintain maintenance records.

These things are necessary to become a professional.  A good example of a professional company is this Little Rock electrician that we randomly chose.
