It sounds like the garbage disposal has a fatal short, and the reset won't push in because there is an electrical failure inside the unit.

I have an in-sinkerator cover control disposal. Its worked fine for 3 months, but tonight its not working. I can feel the magnets on the cover engage, but no power. I tried the red reset button on the...

Did you check the breaker? If the breaker is good, the reset button on the bottom is a tough one to get to klik, it has to klik , or it doesn't reset, sometimes you have to hold on to it for a while. Is there something inside the thing jamming it up? Does it hum? The only thing left to do is make sure it has power, and if so, then blame the unit. Hope this helps.

Water drains fine the unit runs but does not get rid of food

Be aware that your selected object you have a problem with is a hot water faucet made by insinkerator, not a disposer. I'm not sure what your problem is, but let's try to address the most common problems.
The disposer must be turned on and run to get rid of food. Does the motor come on when you turn it on? If it doesn't, does the disposer make a humming sound when you turn it on like it's jammed? If it makes no humming sound when you turn it on, first press the reset button on the bottom firmly. If the disposer then makes a humming sound, it's jammed. Read below. If the disposer still doesn't act like it has power when you turn it on, check the circuit breaker or fuse and try the reset button again. If none of this so far works and you still don't even hear it making the motor-stalled-buzzing-sound (open the cabinet door) then you should still check the disposer to see if it's jammed.
First, make sure you TURN OFF THE POWER to the disposer with the circuit breaker or fuse box. Now you need to check if the shaft rotates freely. On most disposers, there's a hole in the center of the bottom of the unit. You can insert a special disposer wrench or allen wrench into this hole and turn the shaft of the motor. It should rotate freely. You'll probably find the disposer wrench taped under the sink, or you can pick one up at a hardware store. If the disposer doesn't have this hole on the bottom, you need to go from the top. Remove the splash guard (black flappy thing) if it is removable on your model. Look inside with a flashlight for anything foreign that may be causing a jam like bottle caps. Place a broom handle against one of the lugs mounted on the wheel, and see if the wheel turns freely. If it doesn't, try to work it back and forth until it does. Then use tongs to remove the foreign object. After you clear a jam, it may be necessary to push the reset button again. If the motor became overheated it may take it as much as like 20 minutes for the motor to cool enough to allow you to reset.
Be aware that food usually needs to be pushed into the disposer manually, with a full flow of cold water.

My waste disposal unit wont turn on

Theres a reset button on the side of the thing.  Also check the breaker box to see if the switch got flipped.

Disposal does not run. I've turned the appliance

Your disposal unit may be on a GFI protected circuit which has tripped. If you don't have a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) in your kitchen, check your main breaker box since they are often installed there.

I turned on the wall swithch. there is a buzzing noise but no movement. blades move freely when i hand turn them. i have unpluged the unit from the wall, still no movement

I think you are talking about a disposal. Since the blades move freely and you have actually unplugged it from the wall, feel all around the bottom of it for a reset button. Even if you have removed power, if this button clicks when you push it, it was tripped. Otherwise, my disposal just did the same thing. The type I have only last for 2 years. Mine buzzes and thats all. The motor has gone out. I will have to replace mine. You may as well.

In-sink aerator makes buzzing noice and wont work even after pressing the reset button.

Are you sure the blade is turning? If its not, there is a hole in the bottom you can fit an allen wrench into to turn the motor and break it free again.
