I have a badger 5 plus garbage disposal (5-6 years) it humms

I have a badger 5 plus garbage disposal (5-6 years old). When I turn it on it just humms. I did take an allen key to the bottom of the unit and the blades spin freely. There is also nothing down in the unit as far as food etc. Is it bad?

Yes, it sounds like you have a bad motor winding, not allowing the motor to actually work. It is time to replace. Hope this helps

My Badger 5 InsinkErator garbage disposal leaks out of the seam about midway down the unit. I don't know how old it is as it came with the house I bought 3.5 years ago. Is it something I can fix?


if the inner seal is leaking -- it is best just to go and buy a new garbage disposal and install it.
normally when the seals start to go bad in the units it does start to effect other parts of the disposal,, and it is kinda a domino effect.

BADGER 5 HUMM WON'T RUN BECAUSE SOMETHING OBVIOUSLY STUCK


It is located on the very bottom of the disposer, and can be seen from under the sink. The pin is actually an allen wrench, and mates to the socket.
