SOURCE: how do I remove unit from sink?

hi there first you need to get it cleaned out the best you can so you can see inside the disposer look at the verry middle of the disposal there you will see a bolt that needs to be removed it may be a special kind of bolt so just be prepared for that most hardware stores also sell a tool to help remove the bold and blade ...l after that bolt is removed you should be able to remove the blades than undo the pipes that are connected to it and any bolts and nuts ect ect. than pull out the unit if there is any silicone that seaoled the unit in it will be kind of hard but not impossiable to remove ok.

SOURCE: Garbage disposle makes a humming noise when turned

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.

My Badger 5, 1/2 Hp, won't operate, even after pressing the "red button." There is power to the unit: when we flip the wall switch the unit hums somewhat loudly. Ideas?


It's jammed. Turn the power off, get your hand in there, and twist the rotor back and forth until it unjams. Hitting the rotor with a big wooden spoon would work, too.
