Make sure that the fuse/breaker is not blown/tripped You could take a voltmeter and check for voltage at the unit. Hope this helps

Badger 5 just clicks when I try to turn it on. It is only 4 years old. We tried reset button, checked blades for something lodged in it, and unplugged and re plugged.


Use broom handle and see if blades turn freely.
If blades turn freely, and disposal makes clicking sound to indicate that you have power, and reset button is not tripped out, then disposal has gone bad.
If unit still looks new, then buy identical disposal from store, replace just the disposal body, and return defect in new box.
I wrote ez disposal replacement steps from when I worked apartment maintenance.

Garbage disposle makes a humming noise when turned on. InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal


Did you also hear any clattering sounds when it started? If so, it is rotating. If not then this hum is the motor in the lock rotor stage. Did you place garbage in it yet? Always run cool water in it when starting it.

If the blades move freely with the wrench and stick and motor hums then it sounds like it is time to replace the unit. Have you tried the reset switch? If it is humming than it is probably not tripped but worth a try. Hope this helps.
