AnswerFor starters, don't take it apart just yet. Not sure what your problem is with the disposal, but sometimes, if you click the reset button on the bottom of the disposal, under the cabinet, then take your broom handle and stick into the disposal, of course TURNED OFF, then turn the broom handle clock wise 2-3 times, then turn in counterclockwise 2-3 times, then click the reset button again. Try turning it on after that! Hope this works!

If this doesn't work and you need to replace the GD Unit it is very simple.

first make sure the switch is off

under the unit is a cover plate-- unscrew and remove cover plate and untie the wiring.

disconnect the hose clamp and the piece of waterway pipe

now while laying on your back look up at the unit and notice 3 long mount screws-- loosen those screws while holding the unit with the other hand-- once the screws are looseened turn the unit counter-clock wise till the unit falls free.

When installing the new GD Unit-- be sure to knock out the plastic cap that is inside the water way neck port where the hose goes. If you do not knock this piece out and connect the unit-- your unit will not drain properly and will begin to get a sewage odor within a couple of weeks. This odor can be eliminated once this cap is punched out properly. Use the Internet DIY areas for DIY videos that can help you to reach your goal.

No, you do not need a special garbage disposal for a porcelain sink. However, generally speaking, installing a garbage disposal under porcelain can definitely damage the porcelain texture.

Yes, you can. Just make sure to have the faucet on whenever you put something down the garbage disposal. Never put bones down the garbage disposal.

Raw cabbage leaves should not be put into the garbage disposal as it will badly plug up the disposal. Other items that should not put into the garbage disposal include banana peels, onion skins and celery.
