    My kitchen sink disposer will spin but not drain.

    I reset it and checked for any blockage, no luck. any suggestions?

    Most likely you just hear the motor running and asume the blades are spinning. It seems that the connection of the blades to the motor are completly rusted away and if this is the case you need to install a new disposal.

    Do you see the blades spinning ?

    I figured it out. The line was clogged. I took a plunger to it and all is well. 

    thanks
