At the very botton of the stapeler in the back there should be a square mechanism press in and down then just slide the staples in and eplace the mechanism the way you took it out

Possibly you are trying to load it from the back with the arm out. This way does not work. With this stapler you must pull the arm out all the way and then drop the staplers in the bottom. Too easy, right? I felt like a dumb a$$ after fighting this one for an hour. By the way, it will take heavy duty staples but you need to match the item codes printed on the side of the stapler with the box at ACE hardware. Hope this helps... Say "yes" to "was this solution helpful?" so I can know that im not the only one who did this wrong :)

Many power tools have a reset button. They are not always easy to find but this could be a solution.

gas and fire, I would return it before you blow something up.

Replace the whole thing. They are not that expensive and are easy to replace. The issue could be bad motor part or the shaft came loose from the grinding disk.

Most likely the whole thing needs to be taken apart and cleaned, not just the disposal, but the plumbing as well.
I have often had to do this for others.
Very often the problem has been people put things in the disposal that plug up the plumbing, like eggshells, bananana peels, and other fruits & vegetables that readily plug the system.
I have had to take such apart too many times to count.
Oh, yes.
If your dishwasher empties into the disposal ( that is normal) you may find your 2 choices are to repair or replace the disposal, or remove the disposal all together and hook the dishwasher drain directly to the plumbing.
God bless your efforts.

I'm not sure what bolt you are talking about.
The sink strainer attaches to bottom of sink with 3 bolts.
If bolts breaks, you can substitute ordinary 1/4" hex bolt.

If a bolt is broken off inside something metal, then you can drill a small hole in the broken bolt.
Then remove bolt using a screw extractor available hardware or auto parts store.
You can drill out the bolt, and then re-thread the hole.
I suggest you take the part in question to hardware store.
I used to work hardware/home-center, and those guys can get eyes on the job and offer best solution.
