Question about Badger Basket 1905 Round Doll Bassinet
Broom used. Restart button couldn't be found.
SOURCE: My Badger 5 garbage disposal
I had this same problem after my wife tried to clean out a fish bowl
(she said she skimed out all of the little pebbles). She still missed
a lot of them and many ended up in the disposal. Anyways it made the
same humming sound when turning it on. This humming noise means
something is jamming it from spinning. The hum is just the sound of
the motor trying to spin (DO NOT LEAVE IT HUMMING FOR A LONG TIME)
HERES HOW TO FIX IT:
-If you have a lot of whatever's causing the jam still in there, I suggest you take out the disposal and flush as much as possible out with water (I had to do this to get majority of the rock pebbles out) while holding it upside down.
-Now you need a decent tool set, get a 3/8" ratchet, 7/16" deep socket, and a 3" extension.
-It's easiest if you put the disposal back in the sink to do this step as it may take some muscle and the sink will hold it in place.
-If you look down into the disposal from the top of the sink you should see a nut in the middle of the disposal (and the 2 silver spinning teeth on the sides).
-The nut in the middle is what you need to get the ratchet on.
-Now just muscle the ratchet clockwise for awhile then counter-clockwise for awhile and repeat if necessary until the rotor spins completely freely. When there is completely no reistance when turning it you are done.
-Pull the ratchet out and try turning on the disposal. If you did the above step correctly then if should turn on like normal.
Congratulations you just saved yourself from calling a plumber!!
