Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are a few garbage disposal issues we commonly fix:
- Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t operating properly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the scent won’t go away.
- Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.
You should always drizzle cold water into the garbage disposal while crushing foods. Cold water hardens greases that have been poured in. This makes it easier for the system to chop them up.
Garbage disposals also require everyday use to avoid rust.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be fixed if you can find the part that's leading to the problem.
If you find a fatigued or leaky part, put in a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to plug cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Decay on the seals
- Loose pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and split
- Breaks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This area often has leaks as well.
These issues can be repaired except for cracks in the body or interior lining of the disposal. If this is your problem, you will need to install a new garbage disposal.
It can take a DIYer a lot of time to find and complete simple repairs, so include that in the cost when attempting to take care of the problem on your own.
Having an Expert technician like one from Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning identify and repair the problem can help catch other pieces that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t find yourself dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
