It is jammed the way to fix it is to use wooden broom stick and place the handle side in disposal and let it engage on the side pull stick back and forth till you free up the cutting blades. Then test it to see if it works. This happens a lot with disposals.

Jammed Kenmore Food Waste Disposal


It's not very likely that you have destroyed it, those things are tough. It just has something in it that is to tough for it to grind. Remove it and retrieve your corn holder and everything should be fine.

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

Our new kenmore garbage disposal shoots the water up rather than sucking it down


Check the drain is not clogged.
Does sink opening have splash guard?
Check that plumbing is vented as required by code:

Replace garbage disposal shredder disc


Which direction does disposal blade turn?
For example when looking straight-on at the nut holding power saw blade, the blade rotates counterclockwise, so the nut is reverse thread.
Most disposals are not made for repairs
