InSinkerator issue


I turned the electricity back on. I still hear the hum sound. I tried pouring water from the sink but whenever I do that the circuit breaker for the disposal turns off every time and the smell that I am getting from the disposal is when something is shot. I tried pressing the red reset button but now it's stuck and I can't get if to come back out.

There is some buildup around the red button.

definitely either seized, or the motor has failed.


either get it unstuck using the methods already posted, or replace the unit

I already told you what i would do. Metal to metal with a tap will deliver more tap to the shaft . than that metal to wood ?? This unit is a motor now it has bushing or beiring's on the shaft so wouldn't a tap on both ends maybe move it ?? What do you have to loose ? if it is that tight than my thought's above would be what i would do . But it is your's good luck

Could I buy a different type of garbage disposal. Now I have a InSinkerator 3/4 Emerson e404. I really like the waste king model 3/4 3300.

Should I be concerned. I bought a dishwasher kit but had someone assist me in installing the dishwasher.
