1. Call your local utility to see if they're doing work in the area.

They often force air down pipes which can cause the plumbing in your home to back up.

That said, it sounds like the problem could just be the disposal. Your disposal should have come with a small wrench that you can insert in the bottom to turn the blades inside. If the disposal is getting power but not moving the problem is probably there.
