    17 insinkerator
    My insinkerator works but makes a load noise, as if a bottle cap was in it, but nothing is there.
    When I use the supplied wrench and I move it back and fore rapidly it makes a similar noise.
    Could it be a bearing? Any suggestions? Does it have to comeout?
    Thank you

    Mine sounds like metal hitting too but there is nothing inside. Were you able to repair yours or did you have to replace?
