I'm missing a small piece of flexible rubber that was approx 0.8" x 0.3" x 0.17".
I think it went into the garbage disposal in the kitchen sink.
After turning off the breakers, and securing my cat so he would not turn them back on out of spite, I felt around in the garbage disposal. I could not find anything... one of the downsides of actually having huge hands (as opposed to a certain individual who will not be named due to his sensitivity about this matter).
Now, when I run the garbage disposal, it doesn't sound so great. It sounds like something may be stuck in it.
Besides disassembling and cleaning everything (if that's even possible... I'm not sure if it's a sealed unit), is there anything I can do to get the garbage disposal back to it's previously happy state?
