I have installed a garbage disposal under my sink (Badger 5). It is not new, about 2 years old. Brought it from my old house. It worked great before moving it. I wired it in myself. It works when turned...

Smoking electrical device is probably not good news. It implies electrical short.
Freely spinning cutter disk means the sealed motor bearing did not rust out and bind the motor.
Smoking disposal means minimum of melted insulation and overheated motor.
Overheated motors will slow down and stop working.
What caused it? Maybe moving disposal around loosened something.
Decades ago household items were taken to the electric shop and they rewound the motor.
Today metal and copper is landfilled or scrapped to other parts of the world.
I wrote ez disposal replacement steps from when I worked apartment maintenance, but you are experienced already.

Motor hums attemps to turn but does not

If motor hums and does not rotate, the motor winding is bad.
Motor is overheating and will stop humming and it will not work again.
30 years ago, motors were rewound at local electric shop.
Today the copper winding and steel parts are recycled or thrown into landfill.
Check warranty papers and then buy new pump.

I push the reset button on the badger 5 unit nothing happen. The unit doesn,t make a sound when I try to turn it on.

These motors gradually slow up, and the slower speed causes motor to overheat.
Reset is supposed to detect high heat, but in any case, the motors go bad.
Used to be, there was a motor shop in town and they would rewind motors, but today we throw all the copper and metal into landfill unless old disposal is taken to recycle center and shipped to Bangladesh for dis-assembly and salvage.

Check that your wall switch has power, and that switch is good, and there is no loose wire.
Also check for loose wiring at disposal.
If reset is tripped out and won't reset, then disposal is bad.

Tips for installing new disposal:

Here are basic disposal parts:
1) Sink basket that connects to sink and is held with 3 screws from below.
2) Disposal body which connects to sink basket using metal ring.
3) Rubber washer between disposal and sink basket.
4) Dishwasher connects to upper part of disposal with a hose.
5) Electric wire coming from disposal switch connects to disposal near red reset button.
6) Tubular drain pipe connects to side of disposal

When I worked apartment maintenance, we replaced disposal with same size and brand disposal.
That way we didn't have to change out sink basket or move pipes around under the sink.
How to: Disconnect 2 nuts on p-trap and trap falls loose.
Using hammer and screwdriver, rotate steel connector disk that holds disposal to sink basket, and disposal comes off.
Before installing new disposal.
Attach electric wire to new disposal, black wire to black and white to white and ground to green screw or wrap around screw cover, and push in red reset button.
Attach dishwasher tube to new disposal. Knock out plug inside dishwasher opening.
Lift new disposal up into place, and attach to old sink basket.
There is a rubber washer between disposal and sink basket, Use new washer.
Connector ring catches at three points, all three have to connect.
You can use bottle jack to lift disposal if you have problem.
Re-assemble tubular pipe.

Image shows direction for connecting new disposal.

If this is your home, you want new sink basket that comes with new disposal because it looks shiny and new.
Buy a tub of plumbers putty also.
Remove 3 screws that hold sink basket, remove basket and clean sink opening.
Put finger-size roll of plumbers putty around sink opening, and then push new strainer basket into plumbers putty.
Tighten basket from below, wipe away excess putty around sink opening.
Install new disposal as described above.


Tips for tubular pipes:
When taking apart tubular pipes, start at p-trap and take apart as few pieces as needed to do job.
On image above, loosen both upper and lower nuts, trap falls loose, and then work on disposal.
Any tubular drain pipe that gets moved while working under sink needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled.
Metal pipes have rubber washer >> always use new rubber washers.
Plastic pipes have plastic washers > plastic washers can be cleaned and re-used.
Plastic washers have flat side that goes toward nut, tapered side away from nut.


When reassembling tubular pipe, we use rectorseal on washers and joints.
Slap a good amount on washer just before pushing washer in place and attaching nut.
Rectorseal will ensure tubular drain pipes won't leak.

Time wheel stopped moving.

You posted under the Intermatic T-101

Check if manual override turns Load on and off
If manual override snaps clean and crisp, and Load operates correctly, then you can replace the clock motor.
If manual override does not work very well, then you can buy another T-101 and swap out insides without changing box.
If manual override snaps clean and crisp, but Load does not come on, then check your electricity at breaker and check if wires are tight inside the timer.

Clock Motor
T-101: replace with T100series 120Volt clock motor
T-103: replace with T100series 120Volt clock motor
T-104: T100 series 240V clock motor

Where to buy clock motor:

How to replace clock motor:
Turn off power.
Take a photo of your wiring so you have a record of how wiring looks.
There are two small white wires that go to clock motor.
Inside box, there is a release lever located top of box.
Push release lever up and timer mechanism tips out.
Lift mechanism up slightly, and then tip all the way out.
Clock motor is held by tiny screws or tiny star-screws
Swap motors.
Attach clock motor wires on front terminals in exact location they were connected before.
Turn screw terminals very tight against copper wire.

My winch won't work anymore...there is a clicking noise and winch wont turn....I check the connection and its good.

Take your voltmeter and verify your voltage at the switch. If it is 11.5 or better, try reversing the motor. Reverse direction requires less ampreage to run and should work fine, then try forward or wind.

The ABS light has come on in my 53 plate Renault Clio

That is the light connected to your antilock brake system. More often than not the problem is a faulty sensor and not an actual brake problem. Do you still feel the antilock brake pumping action when you brake? If yes, your antilock brake system is still operational, if not then you simply have conventional brakes which would require you to pump the brake pedal if you were driving on slippery roads. Good luck.

Electric Intermatic T171 THE MOTOR IS NOT RUNNING

Insure the motor wires are hooked to the line in and nuetral posts of the timer. If they are and the timer can be triggered manually then the motor is burned out. If the timer cannot be triggered manually check the breakers at your electrcal panel to see if the one of them may be tripped that supplies the power to the timer.

Good Luck
