Yes, on bottom a little recessed button should be pushed to reset the device. If the blade is stuck, the reset might not work but just keep tripping the breaker so you have to free up the blades with a broom stick or other item stuck into the disposal (with the power off of course) to turn the blades manually. Then try the reset button again. and hit the switch. Otherwise, check your kitchen's electrical breaker to see if it has tripped as well.

Our SinkErasor Badger 5 doesn't work.Wrenchette can't be rotated


MAKE SURE THERE'S NO STUFF INSIDE THE DISPOSAL. PUSH RED RESET BUTTON, (USUALLY UNDERNEATH OR ON SIDE) IF THERE IS ONE. THE DISPOSAL ALSO CAN BE TURNED USING A 1/4INCH ALLEN WRENCH. USUALLY INSERTED IN BOTTOM UNDERNEATH OF DISPOSAL.

The motor on my Badger 5 disposal was humming but not rotating. I cleaned out all the debris, reset it and now there's nothing - no hum, nothing. Is my badger dead?


The badger 5 has a dislodge device on the bottom right in the very center. An allen wrench will fit if you have lost the tool that came with it.

FIrts you will need to dislodge anything preventing it from turning. (Insert the right size allen wrench and turn both directions) The remove whatever comes loose after dislodging.

Then opush the red reset button on the bottom. Check the breaker that powers up the disposal, as you may have tripped it.

If the breaker is on, the unit is turning freely, and the reset button is pushed, then the next step is to check for power using a volt meter, to make sure the disposal is indeed getting power. If all the above has been done, the unit IS getting power then yes, the disposal needs to be replaced.
