Hi my name isXXXXX can help you with your issue. If you can turn it freely with the allen key and it still hums the motor is bad. It's probably better to just buy new at this point. A service call would cost 75 dollars and the parts and labor to repair it would be in the neighborhood of 120-150 at least. Most service companies don't repair disposals anymore they just replace them any way.
