Question about Emerson InSinkErator STC-BLK Sink Top Switch Trim Only - Black

1 Answer

Garbage disposal will not go on. Breaker is on, reset has been tried.

When I push the button to turn on my garbage disposal, nothing happens. The breaker is on, the disposal is not stuck. I have hit the reset button, nothing. Is it possible that I need a new Insinkerator "sink top switch" box that the electrical is in?

Yes. It is possible. Is the push button in with this switch box? Because the push button could be bad.

Garbage disposal


My checklist for garbage disposals:
(1) most disposals have a little red RESET switch on the bottom. Once the impeller will turn manually, press the reset button, and you may get back full operation.

(2) 120 Volt wall switch may have burned out. They're only rated for 100,000 operations before they burn out.
(3) If the impeller is difficult to turn, you may try to use an "flywheel wrench", which is just an offset Allen wrench that fits into the bottom of the motor, and can be used to turn the flywheel manually, freeing the impeller and allowing the reset to work.
(4) The circuit breaker in the breaker panel in the basement may have tripped, cutting power to the switch controlling the garbage disposal. If tripped, turn off the switch to the disposal and reset the breaker.
(5) Disposal motor may have died.

This How-To seems like a nice one:

I get power through the reset button. No humming, no nothing. Is it a bad motor?


If i understand correctly, you tested the wires where they connect to the garbage disposal.
Those wires connect before the garbage disposal reset button.
If the reset button is locked in, then the reset is not popped out.
If reset will not reset, then the popped-out reset will push in but not click down.

If the reset is clicked in, and you hve 120V on the line, and the garbage disposal doesn't make any noise, then the motor is bad.
There are no replacement parts for garbage disposal.

The motor on my Badger 5 disposal was humming but not rotating. I cleaned out all the debris, reset it and now there's nothing - no hum, nothing. Is my badger dead?


The badger 5 has a dislodge device on the bottom right in the very center. An allen wrench will fit if you have lost the tool that came with it.

FIrts you will need to dislodge anything preventing it from turning. (Insert the right size allen wrench and turn both directions) The remove whatever comes loose after dislodging.

Then opush the red reset button on the bottom. Check the breaker that powers up the disposal, as you may have tripped it.

If the breaker is on, the unit is turning freely, and the reset button is pushed, then the next step is to check for power using a volt meter, to make sure the disposal is indeed getting power. If all the above has been done, the unit IS getting power then yes, the disposal needs to be replaced.

Three points to ck. !) make sure disposer is plugged in under ther the sink. 2) Make sure the circuit breaker at the breaker panel has not tripped. 3) Make sure disposal is off and make sure it is not jammed, 3) Press reset breaker located on bottom of unit (red button.) Then try wall switch again.

BADGER GARBAGE DISPOSAL NO POWER


Have you checked the circuit breaker on the disposal itself? In the bottom there's a little button that resets the circuit breaker. press it in and see if that works. If the disposal is still jammed you should hear a hum.
