Disposal hums, but doesn't work. blades turn freely, as well asthe motor with a wrench- with no pressure?


Copy following link for disposal troubleshoot, and replacement tips:

Sounds like disposal motor has overheated and shorted.
Fortunately today's disposals are fully contained, and did not cause fire.
Replace disposal.

My badger 5- 1/2 hp it wont spin the reset dose not work i unplug it that dose not work. sometomes it makes noise and sometimes it dosent but it will not spin at all thanks


If disposal makes sound, then electricity is good. Check that the switch is good and that circuit breaker is not loose and shorted.
Use wood broomstick down into sink opening, or use allen wrench on bottom of disposal, and move cutter disc until it rotates freely. The try disposal switch again.
If disc moves freely but disposal will not operate, then you need new disposal.
I wrote ez replacement steps from when I worked apartment maintenance.

Yes, the fit is pretty universal, and the circuit supplying power to the badger should be sufficient for the new one, which draws 10 amps. But you should take a look at the dimensions on the sheet at this link to confirm that you have space for it.

The badger 5 has just stoped working


There are three possible things.
1) Circuit breaker tripped
2) Wall switch gone bad
3) Reset button tripped on disposal
Reset is located near where wire connects to disposal
