I do not see a category for Compactors. Are there no resources for Broan Compactors? I see you have a video for a Kitchenaid. It is not much. All it offers is a suggestion that is in the use and care manuals. No other complaints or remedies are given. BTW ; Whirlpool literature states that the level needs to be at least 1/2 full not 3/4 full

I have my own curriculum on Broan Compactors and Whirlpool. All 12″ wide Broans NL in production nor is the 18″ Viking (Hobart-KA). The Broan Elite 15 is being used by electrolux. Do I need to search under that brand?

Now a days I only instruct on Whirlpool and Broan and only for a few days of the training program.

My garbage disposal hums -but doesn’t work – there is nothing lodged in the system from above – I have used the wrench and can easily spin the disposal from below in both directions … but when I turn the disposal on, it still just hums and doesn’t turn – is the motor burnt?
The Brand is an InSinkErator – Badger

Thanks

Can disposals be repaired or do I need to have the entire thing replaced? I’m not sure if it’s something major or not.

I have cleaned it out and looked for obstructions. The allen wrench turns but the disposal still just hums and the turns a small amount until the reset button pops out. This is a Badger disposal.

I have a 60s that I installed probably less than ten years ago, and it just doesn’t want to work.
If I leave the switch in the on position, the breaker on the bottom of the unit will pop.
One in twenty times the motor will fire up after several seconds of loud humming.
I can insert and fully turn the wrench.
Thoughts?

By the way, I was sent to your site from your YouTube channel. Thanks for those handy items!

Hi. My garbage disposal is humming but not working. I used my Allen wrench to loosen the blades. The water is draining now but nothing else. The reset button is pushed in. It hums and that’s about it. Also, when I touch the disposal, it’s hot. Is that a red flag or is that from me trying to get it to work by turning it off and on.? Thanks so much for your help!!

Hello, a few months ago we had the garbage disposal stopped working. After flipping the switch, it would make a humming sound. No one knew what the cause of the sound was, so we stopped using the disposal altogether, and just used a food catcher in the sink to catch any food, so that it would not go down into the drain, and we had no access to the garbage disposal. For months, it has not been used, because of the assumption that the motor had ran out. I came across your YouTube video about an easy quick fix for a clogged garbage disposal, and I got an Allen wrench and attempted turning it from the hole at the bottom, and I was wondering, does the disposal have to be plugged in in order to turn? I attempted to turn it counterclockwise and either I am not strong enough or it did not move at all. Right now it is currently unplugged, so I am wondering if it should be plugged in for me to turn it, and if I am turning it in the correct direction.
