Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are a few garbage disposal issues we regularly repair:
- Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t running right.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal smells bad 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 breaking down foods. Cold water hardens greases that have been discarded. This makes it easier for the system to break them up.
Garbage disposals also need everyday use to avoid rust.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can identify the part that's creating the problem.
If you find a worn out or leaky part, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Decay on the seals
- Loose pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
- Fissures in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location often experiences leaks as well.
These problems can be taken care of 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 many hours to find and complete simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when choosing to tackle the problem by yourself.
Having a professional technician like one from Knochelmann Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and take care of the problem can help find other pieces that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t end up repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
