Question Disposal hums, not jammed, flywheel moves freely.
Model Number: Badger 5   Brand: -other-   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


When my disposal stopped working and produced the hum, I did research and found the solution to get the flywheel unstuck. It turns out it wasn't stuck; it moved freely in both directions. As I was fiddling around with it I found that I am able to get the disposal running if I get the flywheel going. I insert a long plastic handle into the drain and get the flywheel turning, the motor then takes over and the disposal works fine. I would rather not have to do this whenever I want to use the disposal and was wondering if there is a solution to getting the thing to get started on its own?

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Default I have the same problem

Did you find a solution to this yet? I have the same problem with my disposer right now. I haven't tried the jump start thing that you mentioned, but the flywheel does spin and the motor does hum.

Help, please. I don't like replacing garbage disposals.

Your start switch is bad in the disposal, sometimes fixable but you have to remove the disposal.

Same Problem. My motor is working though.. the humming noise is still there and I have restarted it and used the hex wrench .. there is nothing in the disposal .. the flywheel just isn't turning on its own. help!
