Would suggest also if you have a garbage disposal that has the hex wrench insert on the bottom you can use that to also spin the impeller to unjam the unit. Otherwise good to go

Yes most disposal units come with an Alan key so you can rotate the blades from the bottom of the unit. Rotate in each direction to un jam any thing check the red reset button. Then try it again most jams occur when not enough water is used to flush away the grinds.
