Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are a few garbage disposal troubles we regularly fix:
- Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t running correctly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal stinks and the odor won’t dissipate.
- Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.
You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water hardens greases that have been dumped in. This makes it easier for the system to shred them.
Garbage disposals also require frequent use to avoid corrosion.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be fixed if you can locate the part that's creating the problem.
If you find a fatigued or leaky part, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to stop cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Decay on the seals
- Unsecured pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and cracked
- Cracks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This area frequently has leaks as well.
These malfunctions 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 make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to handle the problem without professional help.
Having an Expert technician like one from Calverley Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning identify and repair the problem can help find other components that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t be fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
