: : Hopefully this is a simple fix and someone can help me

: : My garbage disposal doesnt want to work. After reseting it and turning it on it makes a humming noise but the flywheels are not turning
: : When i try to move them by hand I can do so. Is it shot or is there a fix for this???

: Tony,
: The blades will move even if the center will not move. Does the part that holds the blades move? If not, you may find an Allen fitting on the bottom that will allow a wrench to turn and unjam it. A humming motor is not a good sign. Left that way, it will either overheat or pop the reset.

Tony - you will also want to look for any sharp hard objects that may be preventing the rotation -then rotate with the wrench accordingly.
