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

Motor just hums,grinder wedges are free, no leaks apparent,motor turns free in both directions.


yes there is start capacitor on each motor, connected to start winding.
There are two windings on each motor: start winding and run winding.
Both windings receive power at same time. If the start winding is bad, or capacitor is bad, then motor hums as the run winding receives power but there is not enough torque to get the motor rotating.
If motor is humming instead of rotating, then quickly the motor overheats and looses speed after repair or melts and fails.
The problem with disposal repair is getting the thing apart... finding replacement capacitor, or replacement parts, and then reassembling without a leak.
