If the cutter plate will turn freely, look for a reset botton. Some units have them and depending on how it was installed, it will be around the back. It should be a push button, about 3/8" diameter. It takes a good hard push to reset it.

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.

The plug is thin plastic. Use a flat blade screw driver and a hammer to knock it out. I know this sounds primitive but this is how it is done. I have been a plumber for thirty years.

should have came with a alen key use it. to loosen the blades that are stuck on the bottom of the gaburator theree should be a hole in the middle. Just fine a alen key that fits in the hole and turn it around and then turn it on should solve your problem
