It depends on what the clog is. There are a couple of issues, one that is more prominent than perhaps any other. People put grease or bacon fat and other things along those lines down the disposal thinking that warm water will wash it down. What happens is that in not what your disposal is for and the grease or fat will, once cooled, build up a fatty gelatinous mass and water will not be able to penetrate through that.


And so typically you are going to have to have a plumber come out and remove that cavity. If you are a confident Do-It-Yourself'er, you can go under the sink and take the garbage disposable apart and then hose it out. It would be better in that case to go ahead and have a plumber check on it because there may be a lot of fat build up if someone has been making the mistake of actually putting oil down it.
