How do you know the difference between a clogged and a broken garbage disposal?

First look in with a flashlight to see if anything is in there. take a wooden spoon and try to turn the inside. Lacking that, go underneath the disposal and see if there is a hole you can fit n Allen wrench into (in most cases it came with the disposal)... if so, try to turn it that way. If it turns free and still won't work, replace it.

What is proper way of garbage disposal?

If you have a septic tank or gray water system in your home then do not install a garbage disposal because it has been know to clog up your drain field. If you have city sewer and have a garbage disposal then I would recommend that when using the garbage disposal, you make sure you are running cold water because it helps make vegi's not stick to the sides of your drain and its cheaper and I forget but something to do with spaghetti and disposals don't mix.

Your source of water should not be an issue. But it may be an issue if you are on a home septic system. Some say not to use a garbage disposal when you are on a septic system, but you can. I know of some in use with septic systems and they have not had a problem. Generally you should have your tank pumped every five years. With a garbage disposal on the system you should have your tank pump every two or three years,

How do you install a garbage disposal in a shaw sink?

The only issue would be the drain hole. I couldn't find a measurement of what it is. I would imagine a new sink would have a standard size hole. I do not know about an older one. I have never seen a smaller drain for a garbage disposal but that doesn't mean they are not available.
