Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are a few garbage disposal issues we commonly repair:
- Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working right.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the smell won’t go away.
- Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.
You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water sets oils that have been discarded. This makes it smoother for the system to break them up.
Garbage disposals also must have frequent use to avoid malfunction.
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 beat up or leaky part, put in a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to plug cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Wear and tear on the seals
- Unsecured pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and split
- Cracks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This location commonly 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 an entire afternoon to locate and finish simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when attempting to take care of the problem without professional help.
Having a skilled technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and fix the problem can help find other parts that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t find yourself dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
