Garbage disposal unit does not work

I have a Disposall (GFC 300P) brand garbage disposal installed under my sink and all of a sudden, it's no longer working. All it does now is hum. My Google searches showed only one DIY solution and that was to unplug it from the wall socket then put the correct size allen wrench (hex wrench) into the nut at the bottom of the unit and spin the nut clockwise until it moves on its own. However, the Disposall GFC 300P does not have that anywhere on the unit. Also, there is no access to the blades (to move with a wooden dowell, to free it up that way) from the top. Am I screwed or am I just not finding the access for the allen wrench? It seems to be a common enough brand/model of garbage disposal to find some sort of help online, but I can't find any.
