Have a close look at the blade. It may have jammed up with a stone or stick or something and melted the inside mounting. The blade may be spinning on the shaft and not actually be turning by the motor now.
I had a similar problem. my samsung freezer would only cool to 20 degrees, which also resulted in the freezer ice maker not functioning. (fridge door ice maker still worked) If you hold the power freeze and power cool buttons down together for 8 seconds it will a diagnostic. found the answers on http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=8206.0 , as too what the codes meant. Mine was throwing a freezer fan code error. ordered one online $30 and replaced it. seems to be working. TIP -The fan is located behing the rear panel in the freezer. I had two fans. The regular looking one is the freezer fan, the squirrel cage fan feeds the fridge ice maker. Also the new fan motors don't come with blades, just pull the blades off the old one and put it on the new motor. Don't push it on too far, make sure there is enough clearance so it spins freely.
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. http://www.fixya.com/support/r7929008-replace_garbage_disposal
Is this your indoor fan (this isn't a window unit is it)? Turn the power off and make sure the fan spins freely by hand. If it does then check the capacitor for the fan. If it doesn't spin freely then you may need a new fan motor.
If the blade and impeller spin freely by hand after removing the obstruction but does not pump out the waste after assembling the unit back together, then could be a bad capacitor, since the capacitor spins the blade and impeller. If the capacitor goes bad then it will just make a humming noise and not pump the waste out.
No fuse. The obvious thing is to check the motor itself, which means it must be pulled. Once you gain access to the motor, with the power shut off to the unit, try spinning the blade to see if it is bound up. If it's spinning freely, remove it from the unit, and test the windings on the motor for continuity with a VOM meter. If you have no meter or access to one, or aren't familiar with electrical, then take the motor to an Appliance parts house. They can usually test it and most carry motors that are adaptable for beverage coolers. Make sure they know whether the machine is a 120 or 240 volt unit. If I'm not mistaken that motor runs 24/7 when cooler is powered up.
Every disposal I've seen or installed has had a RESET button. If there is no sound at all when you switch the unit ON, look/feel around the bottom of the unit for a small button (usually RED). Press the button in, and then try the switch again.
If the unit makes a humming sound when switched on, something is binding the mechanism and preventing the blades from spinning. If this is the case, unplug the unit and then spin it to remove blockage and free the blade mechanism. If the unit came with a large allen wrench, you can insert it in the bottom of the unit and turn it to free the blades. No wrench, no problem. Insert a small piece of pipe, a pipe wrench handle, or (my favotite) a 3/8 or 1/2 inch socket extension bar into the top of unit and turn the blade assembly until it spins freely. Once the blade assembly is freed, the unit should operate normally.
It should unscrew in the opposite direction that the blade turns. Check the blade direction by momentarily spinning the motor with it's own power (don't touch it!). Once you know which direction it goes, unplug it and turn the blade in the opposite direction to remove.
the only way you can get a repair manual is to be a service shop,but what your saying is the dial turns with no resistance.did anyone turn the dial while someone was welding?if so the dial has to be replace,what happens is the contacts inside the unit weld together becuase once the dial is turning it breaks contact then makes contact welding the dial in place.You would not be able to turn the dial.so if the dial turns very easy I would check to see if the dial handle is loose on its shaft.the unit can be taken apart but it just takes a little time.it is a very basic unit with not to many internal parts.good luck,you can fix the problem.
first check that the bucket is in properly. then remove bucket and push red button with finger with the unit on. if you are still getting a red alarm light it might be time to change the control panel. also unit does not work the same in cold weather. it will cycle too often. unit better used in summer-------good luck
