Well without model number and brand, it is impossible to say, but there could be. Motors on equipment quite often are thermally protected. They could be manually reset or automatic. The manual resets are usually a red button, usually somewhere near where the wiring enters the motor. Press it HARD to reset. If that was the problem, now you must find out why it overloaded. Was the pressure set to high? Did it run very extended period of time and overheat? What is the duty cycle of the compressor you have. Did you exceed that duty cycle? Check to be sure you have power on the circuit you are operating it on.

Reset button not working on kitchenaid garbage


Look for small pieces in the disposal... likely pits, glass, etc once these are removed press the reset. also check the breaker. Double breakers can be tripped but you can't tell to look at it. Just shut it off and turn it back on.

My garbage disposal won't turn on, and i've felt down there and can't feel anything blocking it...what can i do now


Check circuit breaker.
Check red reset button on side of disposal and see if it's popped out. It's under sink, next to wire connection on disposal.
See if electric switch has gone bad. Listen if disposal makes humming sound. Humming means electric power is good.
Use vacuum cleaner hose instead of hand to check for stuff inside disposal
Use wood broomstick and see if cutter disk rotates freely.
If disk is stuck, wedge broomstick against side of sink opening until disk comes free, or use allan wrench on bottom of disposal.
If electric power to unit is good, and reset will not reset or reset is not tripped out, and if cutter disk rotates freely, then disposal has gone bad.
You can continue using sink as long as there is no leak that will damage cabinet underneath.
I wrote ex disposal replacement steps from my apartment maintenance days.

I get power through the reset button. No humming, no nothing. Is it a bad motor?


If i understand correctly, you tested the wires where they connect to the garbage disposal.
Those wires connect before the garbage disposal reset button.
If the reset button is locked in, then the reset is not popped out.
If reset will not reset, then the popped-out reset will push in but not click down.

If the reset is clicked in, and you hve 120V on the line, and the garbage disposal doesn't make any noise, then the motor is bad.
There are no replacement parts for garbage disposal.

The disposal turn on but does not crank. Do I need to somehow restart it? There is no reset button.


There will be a reset button on the bottom of the unit, they all have one, hard to locate, turn power off, push in button, should be good to go
