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

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
