of glass is binding the disposal. If you look down in the disposal with a flashlight, you will see in the bottom, center, a 9/16" hex head. Looks like a bolt head. You can get a wrench in the plumbing section at walmart or any hardware store that is made for clearing disposals, or just use a 9/16" socket on an extension to turn the disposal rotor (with power off, of course) back and forth a bit until it clears. You'll create a lot more torque on it than the motor can and should have no trouble clearing the jam. Check for leaks after. Luck, Kizmet
