Garaabage disposal won't turn on

Check that it's getting power first, it may have jammed I am pretty sure some units have an overload cut out switch on the side to stop them burning out if jammed, check for that too.

Reset button not working

Try reset button on bottom of disposal.
Following link has full troubleshoot resources:
If reset will not restore functionality, check that unit is getting power, and then check that unit is receiving 80% rated voltage. Replace disposal.
