The unit may be locked up.

You may want to try jogging it back and worth, with a wrench.

Most units have a bolt on the center bottom you can turn back and worth.

They don't work garbage want my money back


Robert,
Garbage disposals are not designed to take ALL of your garbage... and DO NOT use one if you are on a septic system!!
If it is not working, check for voltage to the switch, from the switch to the disposal,,if you have voltage to the disposal, some have a reset on the disposal..

It will work but it sounds like metal is grinding in it.

Use vacuum cleaner to see if something is loose.
Otherwise, a noisy disposal that works is functional and not dangerous... but annoying.
Life of disposal is probably shortened since the bearing seal could have failed letting water in, and bearings could be rusted.
Replace disposal if noise bother you.

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
