I have a Badger 5 1/2 HP garbage disposal. When I turn on the power switch it just makes a humming sound but doesn't engage. Is there a reset button somewhere on the unit that might need a...


There should be a reset button (circuit breaker) on the bottom of the unit. It sounds more like the blades are stuck. Pull the plug on the unit and use an allen wrench on the manual blade turner on the bottom of the unit. If the blades are stuck, you will have to try and loosen them with the allen wrench. If you do get them loose, the question then is what was holding them. Could be debris in the ISE or something broken like a blade. Keep the unit unplugged when working on it.

Garbage insinkerator is jammed . We tried the reset button but it is still stuck.


The reset button pops when the GD is stuck. Do you know where the allen wrench is that came with it? If not, you need one. This goes directly in the bottom of the GD....turn it clockwise and counter clockwise to free the blades. Hit the reset and turn it on. Good luck

Is there a reset button on the Badger 5


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.

I have a Badger 5 that will not turn on. The blade freely turns by hand, but unit will only hum like the motor is locked. Suggestions.


Use and allen wrench underneath in the center of the disposal. Does the shaft turn freely? If it does, the capacitor is bad. If the shaft won't turn, there is something stuck inside the disposal.

The blades on my Badger 1 insinkerator don't move. The motor hums when turned on. The reset button stays out when pushed.


You will need to free the blades by inserting the food disposal hex key or a 1/4 Allen Wrench into the very bottom of the disposal in the center. After inserting the wrench you need to turn it all the way in both directions to free what has the blades held up. It may be hard to turn but afterwards pull the debris out from inside the disposal. Hit the reset button and it will work. Do not keep turning it on until you free the blade and then reset.

Badger insinkerator 5 just buzzes wont work.


We just ran into the same problem. We fixed it by taking the disposal out and just cleaning all of the debris out of it. It was just stuck because of the fish tank rocks that were stuck between the "blades" and the wall of the disposal so they were just in there preventing the "blades" from spinning.

IN SINK Erator/ Badger Not Grinding waste


if the InsinkErator is least than 2 years old, you should call the service.
there is 2 year In-Home Parts and Labor Warranty by InSinkErator.
if not you have to disaemble the unit and see what is keeping the blade from turning.

let me know if that is what you need.
