Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
If you plug it into the original outlet under the sink and flip the switch, nothing happens? No motor sound? And when you plug it into a different outlet, you can hear the motor, but the blades don't turn?
If this is the situation, I would guess that there's a problem with the insinkerator. Something stuck in it, or it's otherwise jammed. This could have tripped a breaker.
If the breaker failed or the circuit wasn't wired properly, this jammed condition could also have resulted in the wire at the switch or under-sink receptacle burning off of the terminals.
Turn off the circuit at the panel, double check that it's off, and remove the switch and the receptacle to see if the wires are still connected. If they've burned off, do not re-connect them. You should consult a licensed electrician to correct a hazardous situation.
