I have an American Standard High Torque Garbage Disposal (QKGO2), and it was installed by the previous homeowner less than two years ago. It hasn't seen too much use, however, because it trips the breaker pretty often. It will run all day with just water, and maybe the occasional tiny scrap, but as soon as there is the tiniest amount of resistance (or even if it's turned on with the sink draining), it will trip the breaker.
It runs, is plugged into an outlet under the sink, and appears to be the only thing on a 20 Amp breaker (we've left it tripped for weeks at a time and have never noticed anything else in the house without power). The breaker is one of those where I have to push it ALL the way to off before I can reset it, if that means anything to anyone.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
