Use a vacuum cleaner hose and see if something is in there.

Otherwise, the bearings are going bad or some part has come loose, and motor will eventually slow down and overheat and stop working. The disposal still works and is not leaking, so no harm using it.
There are no repair parts for disposals.

I wrote time/money saving tips for replacing disposal from days when I worked apartment maintenance:

My Badger 5 is just humming and I smell a bad burning smell.


Either the Shredding Plate or the motor has burned out. In your case, it sounds like the latter. The motor is not repairable, you have to buy a new unit complete.

It will work but it sounds like metal is grinding in it.

Use vacuum cleaner to see if something is loose.
Otherwise, a noisy disposal that works is functional and not dangerous... but annoying.
Life of disposal is probably shortened since the bearing seal could have failed letting water in, and bearings could be rusted.
Replace disposal if noise bother you.

Badger 5 removal


If you look at where it meets the sink there is a metal ring up close to the bottom of the sink. stick a phillips screwdriver in any of the three round holes and unscrew it a half turn and it will fall off.

Washing machine makes a clanging sound during agitation/spin


Without being there to physically see what it's doing or hear the sound, I would say there's 3 possibilities. 1) drive block is slipping on basket drive / brake assembly. 2) basket drive assembly is worn where drive block seats onto it. 3) clutch slipping.

InSinkErator Badger 5hp NOISY


If it were me I would remove the disposal, turn it upside down and see what comes out. Would I run it with something in it making a lot of noise? Absolutely not. If something is loose in it, it could harm the disposal.
