Garbage Disposal Won’t Drain And Not Blocked

Peter asked 4 years ago
Our garbage disposal is currently facing an issue where it's not draining, despite not being blocked. We've thoroughly checked and removed any blockage, but the water still won't drain from it, even when the motor is running. Additionally, I've noticed that the motor is making an unusual sound. It's worth noting that the sink basin adjacent to the disposal is draining without any issues, so it seems the problem isn't with our pipes. Given these circumstances, I'm seeking advice on why the garbage disposal might not be draining. Are there any specific components within the disposal that I should check, or could the odd sound from the motor indicate a potential malfunction? Any ideas or suggestions for troubleshooting and resolving this draining issue would be greatly appreciated.
