Why Is My Garbage Disposal Humming?
One common problem that people tend to have with garbage disposals is, a humming noise without spinning blades. Typically, the reason for this is a jam within the disposal preventing blades from turning. The majority of the time this is due to an object that fell into the disposal, we have found utensils, small toy cars, and various other objects that jam blades and result in humming.
Fixing Humming Garbage Disposals
When it comes to garbage disposal humming, many issues are simple enough to fix that the homeowner may be able to fix them. Below are tips for repairing a humming garbage disposal, but if they do not resolve the issue give us a call.
Your safety is always priority #1! Do not remove objects by placing hands within the garbage disposal. Even with power turned off the motor could retain enough power for blades to spin once un-jammed! Instead, using tools for inspecting the blades and removal of objects is good practice.
Fixing Jammed Disposals
If you think the disposal is jammed by a utensil, or some other object you will want to unplug the disposal. Once you have disconnected the power source, using a tool you can inspect the disposal further, and remove the object. After removal, plug the disposal back in and flip the breaker if needed.
Unlocking Breaker Sockets
After inspecting the disposal, if you did not find an object jamming the blades, the next step is to try unlocking the breaker socket. This will require the use of an Allen wrench that should have come with the garbage disposal, commonly attached to the unit. Again, the disposal should be unplugged from the power source before continuing. Find the Allen bolt towards the bottom of the garbage disposal, moving it back and forth which unlocks the breaker. In several cases, doing this will set the disposal back to factory specs and alleviate humming noises.
Resetting The Disposal
The majority of modern garbage disposals are equipped with a reset button. When the reset button is pressed, it may eliminate the humming. Typically, the reset button is installed on the side or bottom of the unit.
