3. No suggestions, but replacing a disposal is relatively cheap and not too difficult assuming

 

the pipes aren't clogged or leaking.

I bought a new one for about $70 and replaced it. I'm a hack at such stuff, so it took a couple of hours. A good handyman/woman can probably do it relatively inexpensively.

In a previous house, my disposal would turn on, but it wouldn't clear anything. I unhooked the pipes and cleared out a gross clog with a coat hanger. Worked perfectly until the next clog.


Good luck.
