Why Is My Garbage Disposal Humming?
When people have problems with garbage disposals one of the most common problems is a humming noise but the blades don’t spin. This is generally caused by a jam in the disposal that prevents the blades from moving. Most of the time it is caused by objects which fall into the disposal such as utensils which jam the blades and cause the hum.
Fixing Humming Garbage Disposals
Most problems with garbage disposals are easy and fairly quick to fix and some homeowners can do them. Follow these humming garbage disposal tips to repair your disposal and call if they don’t resolve the issue.
Your safety is always priority #1! Do not place your hands in disposal or near the blades to remove jams. It is a good practice to use tools to check the blades and retrieve objects. Always unplug the disposal before trying to service it!
Fixing Jammed Disposals
When you have a knife, fork, or spoon that is jamming the blades of your disposal ensure the disposal is UNPLUGGED. After you’re sure there is no power use a tool to inspect the disposal and remove the jam. Keep in mind that disposals generally have a breaker you’ll need to flip back on after you plug it back in to get it to work again.
Unlocking Breaker Sockets
If you’ve inspected the disposal and there are no jams or objects preventing the blades from moving you can try to unlock the breaker socket. To do so you should find the allen wrench that came with the disposal, many times it is attached to the unit. Make sure it is unplugged and then locate the allen bolt at the bottom of the disposal and move it back and forth to unlock your breaker. This can many times help alleviate the humming and set your disposal back to factory specs.
Resetting The Disposal
Just about all modern garbage disposals have reset buttons install on them and pressing these reset buttons can stop humming. These buttons are typically install on the bottom or side of the unit.
