Garbage disposal has small hole in main body leaking water


Replace disposal.
The disposal will rust over time, and develop leak... no repairs are possible for that problem.

I have a B&D In sinkerator, 1/3 hsp Model number 1-43 that is leaking from the reset button? What can I do for repair?


Those units have problems with leaks. The reset button is on the bottom of the motor and so the leak is coming though the motor. The housing on those crack pretty easy. I have even see them wear through. They are not expensive and you can easily replace it by yourself.

Motor just hums,grinder wedges are free, no leaks apparent,motor turns free in both directions.


yes there is start capacitor on each motor, connected to start winding.
There are two windings on each motor: start winding and run winding.
Both windings receive power at same time. If the start winding is bad, or capacitor is bad, then motor hums as the run winding receives power but there is not enough torque to get the motor rotating.
If motor is humming instead of rotating, then quickly the motor overheats and looses speed after repair or melts and fails.
The problem with disposal repair is getting the thing apart... finding replacement capacitor, or replacement parts, and then reassembling without a leak.
