How do I unjam it?


On the very bottom of the disposal there is a small opening in the very middle of the disposal. If you shine a light under the sink and put a mirror down on the inside of the cabinet you should be able to see this. You'll need an Allen wrench to put in the 6 sided hex hole and turn counter clockwise until the disposal turns freely. This should unjam your disposal. Don't forget you may have to hit the small reset button on the bottom too.

How to fix a stuffed garbage disposal?


It should have come with a Allen wrench. Be sure it is off. Insert it in the bottom into the center hole. Move it back and forth several times until it frees up. Remove wrench and try, you may have to do this several times. Also be sure the unit is reset before turning on. If it does nothing nor makes nay noise it is probably tripped.

Kenmore 3/4 hp garbage disposer does not work, it only hums.


Do not turn on... humming sound will overheat motor
See if cutter disc located inside disposal can be moved and rotated using broom stick:
If disc rotates freely, then try motor again... if still hums, then replace disposal

with the power "off", check inside the unit to make sure nothing is jammed in there. assuming the interior is clear, try the reset button which is usually located on the bottom of the unit. may need to use a mirror and a flashlight to locate it. if the unit hums (indicating power is there) but it does not rotate/turn/work, use your "disposal key" or a hex wrench to turn it manually: usually inserts on the bottom-middle of the unit; turn it both ways to free it up.

Reset button not working


Try reset button on bottom of disposal.

If reset will not restore functionality, check that unit is getting power, and then check that unit is receiving 80% rated voltage. Replace disposal.
