You are going to have to try to push it through the stuck point. It is clogged without a doubt. Could be a piece of silverware in there. Use a flashlight and take a look down in the hole. Do not stick your hand in there but you can use a pliers or something to dislodge it.

Are you sure the blade is turning? If its not, there is a hole in the bottom you can fit an allen wrench into to turn the motor and break it free again.

It is likely that the drain is clogged. It will have to be cleaned.

You have a clog where the drain pipe leaves the garbage disposal that isn't draining fast enough or not at all. Or it could be a clog in the dishwasher drain hose where it connects onto the disposal.

First unplug the disposal from the electrical outlet. Do not just shut the switch to the off position.
You will need to drain the water sitting in the trap so place a container under the trap to catch the water.
Loosen the collar on the disposal ( use a small hammer and screwdriver)
Remove the old gasket on the top of the disposal and replace with the new gasket.
Place a little plumber's silicon on the gasket and reinstall the disposal. ( it might be a little difficult due to the new gasket)
Check for leaks and then plug the disposal back into the outlet

Full user manual for this here. Cleaning it etc.
Don't think you would destroy the seal if you are careful. Sure you could get a spare if you did from their answerline at top of manual.

disposal unit may need tightening into the sink. May have come loose from vibration. OR the disposal has gone bad and old and needs replacement.

Motor jammed.
Find a reset switch on the bottom.

It would appear there is a blockage (a clog) in the disposal. You might try "FIRST" unplugging the disposal from under the sink. Put a piece of masking tape over the switch to secure it in the "OFF" position. Then remove the black rubber strainer from sink leading down into the disposal. (just pull it out by hand) Clean out all debris by hand. Put the removed debris in the trash can. Run hot water down into the disposal assuring it to drain properly. Do not put items into the disposal which cannot be ground up easily such as potato peelings and meat products.

that is a project I wouldn't reccomend. besides the "blades" are not really changable. The blades are a piece of metal cut at an angle and when they spin they grind the food by rubbing against a series of holes in the base.
if the disposal is not grinding the food, then its time to replace the disposal.

1) Probably replace disposal, unless unit is still under warranty.
