Garbage dispoal air switch not working

The air switch must be held down to run the garbage disposal. Upon release it turns off rather than running until depressed again. I've had it 4 weeks.

Garbage dispoal not working. The blades spin freely inside, the reset button has been reset, when you switch it on the moter makes a faint humming sound, and the allen wrench will not rotate either way.


You need a new disposal.
Free-rotating blades show there is no obstruction.
Humming says you have power.
Frozen allen wrench says bearings are rusted.
Motor is now overheating each timer electricity is turned on, and motor will overheat and stop humming.
At least the drain is clean and water is not flooding under the sink, which means you can continue using sink until disposal is replaced.

I wrote tips for installing disposal from days when I worked apartment maintenance:

My insinkerator Badger 5 is leaking from the bottom. It runs, but water runs out of all spots on the bottom; including the ara where the conduit runs into the unit - please help!


Hi,
My bet is that the garbage disposal in not what is leaking... the connection to the bottom of the sink is leaking and running down the sides of the disposer...
Look higher and you will find your leak..

Water doesnt flow thru and the disposal hums when u turn it on but doesnt run


Aparantly your dispoal has not run for several days or a week or so. In thedisposal are 100 little holes that the groud-up food must pass through and the water as well. If the disposal does not work(Turn) then food particles begin to block all the holes and no water moves. You need to get the dispoal fixed ( or maybe it is jammed) still need to fix it, or use the wrenchette that comes with it (or a 1/4" allen wrench) in the bottom center hole to turn it by hand; this will free the foor particles and allow water to move.You can also plunge the water; this pushes the food through the holes and solves the problem. But, it starts over again until you have the disposal working on its own.
goodluck, Macgivor

Disposal blade locked up after finding bone piece


You need to purchase a garbage disposal wrench. It has a Tee at the top and extends down to a pivot with a large forked head. Drop this down and turn the blades until they start to move. Remove the wrench, run hot water and turn on your disposal. Both blades should now be free. There also might be a red reset button on the bottom.
