Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
I checked the outlet that the disposal is plugged into and the outlet still works if I plug another appliance into it. I checked the red reset button on the bottom and pressed it so it went back "in" instead of "popped out". The disposal must be clogged because I can't get watet to pass through (unless the dishwasher is on, and then water fills UP the sink very quickly). I have the "food disposal wrench" that goes into the center hole on the bottom of the unit, however when I try to turn it, it will not budge at all. Finally, when I turn on the disposal, I hear the lighest hum. I have to almost place my ear to the disposal to hear it, so it's almost inaudible. I actually can't guarantee the hum even exists. I may just think I hear it. Any suggestions?
Take the wooden handle from a plunger or broom and insert it in at an angle and pry in a circular pattern to free it up.
Also,if you can,Look inside and see if you can see anything that may be wedged in the blades.
