reply; your disposer has a small tool that can crank the the disposer manually. if the disposer does not turn freely, there is someting stuck in the blades. you may be able to loosen this up by turning the tool back and and forth. i have replaced the disposer once onlyto find out that the motor was running well after i had taken in out and saw someting stuck in the blades. mymotor was humming also.
