Why Is My Garbage Disposal Humming?
One of the most common problems with garbage disposals is when you flip the switch and all it does is hums but doesn’t spin. This is usually caused by a jam in the disposal. Objects that fall into the disposal like utensils will stop the blades from moving and cause the jam. This holds the blades in place and makes that humming noise.
Fixing Humming Garbage Disposals
Some problems with disposals are fairly quick and easy to fix and can be done by homeowners. Follow these humming garbage disposal repair tips and if they do not work call your garbage disposal repair plumbers.
Safety is always your primary concern so do not place your hands near the disposal blades to remove blockages. It is best to use a tool to check the blades and remove objects. When working on disposals always check that it is unplugged.
Fixing Jammed Disposals
If there is a object like a fork, knife, or spoon stuck in the disposal make sure it is UNPLUGGED before removing it. Once it is unplugged you can remove the object jamming your disposal and reconnect the power. Don’t forget that most disposal models have a breaker switch that might need to be flipped back on to power it up.
Unlocking Breaker Sockets
When there is nothing stuck in the disposal that is holding the blades find the allen wrench that came with the disposal or is attached to it. Ensure the power is turned off and then find the allen bolt on the bottom of your disposal and move it back and forth with your allen wrench. This many times can resolve the humming.
Resetting The Disposal
Most disposals are equipped with a reset button and in a lot of cases resetting the disposal will stop it from humming. Typically this button is located on the bottom of the unit.
