Garbage disposal


My garbage disposal is nit working anymore. When I turn it on it makes a whirring sound but does nothing. There is nothing in there, but I haven't used it in a month or so. The reset button doesn't help either. Anyone have an idea how to fix this

Garbage disposal


Just to clarify, whirring or humming? If humming, could be that it's bound, in which case there should be an hex, a.ka. allen, head screw in the bottom of the disposer, accessed from the cabinet below, never with your hand inside the disposer; try turning that a few times, then remove the wrench and see what it does. If whirring, I don't know, other than it sounds like it's probably time to replace it.

I frees it's a humming. Sounds like out wants to work but is stuck. I will try the allen wrench thing and see if that works

Tried using the Allen wrench but it didn't work. Any other suggestions, or do I have to replace it now?
