It sounds like the disposer has something jamming it. Try using the breaker wrench supplied with the disposer (or a suitable-size hex wrench) fitted into the socket on the bottom. Rock the wrench back and forth to see if you can loosen the jam. Another trick is to use a wooden rod (end of a broom handle, for example) to push on the blade to try dislodging the jam. Look inside with a flashlight to see if there is something that is easily missed. (I have found drink can tabs, coins and a shelf clip that way.)
It's also possible the motor starting capacitor inside the disposer or the motor itself is bad, in which case you would probably spend less on a new disposer than on repairing this one. But a jam is more likely.

Turn off the power to the unit. You can try to free the jam without removing the unit from the sink. Check to see if there is a hex-shaped hole underneath the center of the unit. Use a hex wrench (usually one is provided with the unit) to turn it and free the jam. If there is no such hole insert a short section of broom stick into the opening and try to loosen the jam by pressing the stick against the cutters at the bottom and turning both ways. Be careful not to twist the unit out of its mounting.

sound's like you have a problem with your drain pipe's. it is not normal for water to come back up.check the allen key bolt, located on the bottom of unit .insert allen wrench /key,and turn in a clock wise&counter clockwise motion to see if disposal is jammed.you also might consider some drain opener before it get's worse

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info. Unjammed it like you stated and used drain opener. Walah, it worked!"

Have you checked the circuit breaker on the disposal itself? In the bottom there's a little button that resets the circuit breaker. press it in and see if that works. If the disposal is still jammed you should hear a hum.

Don to install a new one.
don't think it is a DYI and by the time you call for service it would be cheaper and use your DIY.
Hope this is a FixYa
