Question about Microwave Ovens
The buzzing sound that you are hearing is most likely the motor within the disposal unit.
The reason the reset is tripping is because the motor is drawing locked rotor amps which far exceeds the electrical capacity of the reset and therefore, the reset trips.
There are really only two reasons this could happen. Either an object has fallen down into the disposal and has jammed the gears and is preventing the motor from spinning or the motor has locked up and has failed.
Typically, the reason for the problem is due to an blockage within the disposal. You can attempt to clear the blockage if you can see it. The disposal may require to be taken apart if possible to find and clear any obstructions. If you are not mechanically inclined, I would recommend to have the disposal looked at by a plumber who has the knowledge and experience of checking out the disposal.
