Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are some garbage disposal troubles we regularly handle:
- Garbage disposal won’t run.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t operating right.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the odor won’t diffuse.
- 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 solidifies fats that have been dumped in. This makes it easier for the system to break them up.
Garbage disposals also require regular use to avoid corrosion.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can find the part that's leading to the problem.
If you find a worn out or leaky part, replace it. 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 split
- Fissures in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This area often experiences 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 get a new garbage disposal.
It can take a DIYer an entire afternoon to find and complete simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when choosing to tackle the problem on your own.
Having a professional technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning identify and take care of the problem can help catch other pieces that may be about to break. That way, you won’t find yourself repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
