Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

What do you mean the ISE isn't working proeprly. The only time the reset button will pop out is if the motor can't turn.

I turn on the disposal and the waste water in the right sink starts backing up into the left sink

You have a stoppage and you'll need to clear it. It may just be in the trap beneath the sink so you can try cleaning out the trap. If that doesn't work then you'll need to snake the drain.
