My 1996 insinkerator has stopped. It seemd to be working fine.

Resolved Question:

My 1996 insinkerator has stopped. It seemd to be working fine. There is not a jam - all grinders are spinning freely as is the main housing. I used the self serve wrench in the underside and it spins freely. All water is draining fine. There is absolutely no sound when I flip the switch like it is not getting power. So, I have checked the wiring at the wall connection, disposal connection and switch. I have also replaced the switch. And of course of I have checked the main circuit panel. All other lights and outlets on that circuit work fine. And, I have pushed the reset button on the bottom. Any other suggestions to fix it or is it just time for a new one? Again, it seemed to be working just fine until now.

Well it seems like you did all the checks right i would say that the motor is fried. Its time to get another one im surpised that it lasted this long. !4 yrs on one is really good.
