I have a Badger 5 (5-81A). The motor is humming when it's turned on, however, the blade does not turn. The blade does seem to move freely. Tried reset and hex key but still nothing.


you have something stuck in it more than likely,, use the key ( unplug it first) and turn it backwards,, keep looking inside with a flashlight for the lodged object once you see it,, remove it,, sometimes the key won't work if its something caught in the blades themselves, so use the handle end of a broom or plunger with a wooden handle to push on the blade itself to turn the unit over

My disposal only works when the dishwasher is


You say that the disposal only rotates when the dishwasher is running? Are you saying if you turn the disposal on it will not work unless the dishwasher is also on and then it rotates? If you have an on/off switch for the disposal it should at least try to turn when you turn it on. On the bottom of the disposal is a red reset button. If the disposal will not come on push that reset button to reset the breaker. This may solve your problem once you get the disposal running and clean it out. If it trips again something is lodged in the unit and you must clear it out. Turn the power off at the service panel before attempting this. It may also be getting power from a GFCI receptacle. Check the ones in the kitchen to see if they have tripped. Reset them by pushing the red button, and see if that fixes the problem. The drain line from the disposal may also be clogged. Get a bucket and remove the drain line from the disposal and check for a clog in the line and inside the disposal. If you find none then move to the trap under the sink. You may find one of these clogged. Use ice to sharpen the disposal blades and keep the unit fresh at least once every 3 months. Just put ice cubes in the unit and turn it on for about 15 seconds.

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.

The blades on my Badger 1 insinkerator don't move. The motor hums when turned on. The reset button stays out when pushed.


You will need to free the blades by inserting the food disposal hex key or a 1/4 Allen Wrench into the very bottom of the disposal in the center. After inserting the wrench you need to turn it all the way in both directions to free what has the blades held up. It may be hard to turn but afterwards pull the debris out from inside the disposal. Hit the reset button and it will work. Do not keep turning it on until you free the blade and then reset.

Our Badger garbage disposal is filled with water, won't empty out, just keeps running and spinning water around in the sink. We've tried the reset button, unplugging and plugging back in and a plunger. Any...


Sounds like the unit is fine but I think you have a plugged drain.Put an empty bucket under the trap and take it apart.Next remove the tailpiece from the disposal and clean it out.If everything is clean and you can't find the clog you will need a drain snake to remove the clog in the drain pipe.Good luck.
