This answer was rated:

I have an Insinkerator 65 which appears to have developed an electrical fault. I've done the reset button and manual operation to make sure nothing's jamming it. Replaced the blown 13 amp fuse, switched it on and it's blown again. Does this mean that water has got into the motor? If so what to do please?

you have put the Allen wrench in the bottom and turned is and its free?

Yes and yes.
ok this means the motor is compromised in other words yes the water got into it, theres no way to fix that, it would cost more to repair than to replace, I would just replace the unit. thanks Bryan
