      When I turn on the switch for the garbage disposal it only humms. I have hit the reset button numerous times but it still humms. I looked inside to set if anything was binding the grinder but did not notice anything. Should I remove it from the sink and try to see if something is caught inside, or should I just replace unit?

      If it is a Sears, ISE, Emerson, etc with a hex socket in the bottom, use an allen wrench to turn it and then run it for a short time. If it makes a lot of noise check for the object which is stuck or bouncing around inside.

      Please make sure the power is unpluged before attempting the above

      Hey Kenny,
      I’m having the same problem. Did those replies fix your problem?

      Thanks,
      John Stephens
