Stuck disposal

Returned to condo after 6 months to find the disposal stuck. Moderate twisting with the wrench doesn't budge it; motor hums, shuts off, repeats after reset. I have installed a disposal once before, so I can put in a new one--but once I have the old one off, can I get it unstuck any easier and save the expense? Or is there a trick I haven't tried to get it unstuck? Many thanks.

Sounds like you have tried it all. At both ends. Yes Id pull it out and see if you can get it lose that way then . Before I buy a new one.Dont take a lot to take it out and put it back.

On some of them you can use a socket wrench with an extension if there is a bolt in the center of the disposal down inside. You can get more torque on it that way.
