What are some common garbage disposal problems?

If your garbage disposal is having problems, we recommend enlisting in professional help to ensure your safety.

Below are questions we typically get from customers. No matter the problem, we can help you fix it.

Why isn’t my disposal turning on? While the most common disposal problem is a blown fuse or tripped circuit, the issue can also result from a broken motor. This is a simple repair for our technicians.

What’s causing my unit to jam? If you can’t see any food or debris clogging the drain, there might be build-up farther in the pipes. We can easily clear them through drain snaking, which is safe on your pipes.

Why is my disposal making so much noise?You may have accidentally dropped a utensil or other foreign object into the drain. If the problem is the disposal itself, there is likely an issue with the screws, bearings, or blades. We will inspect these parts to get to the source of the problem.

Should you repair or replace your unit?

If the problem can easily be fixed, we will carry out the repair. If there is a larger issue with your unit, where repair is not effective, we will recommend replacement.

How do you know when to call it quits on your existing disposal?

Motor problems: These involve costly, time-consuming repairs that will often only give your disposal a year or two of renewed life. If we find a motor problem in your unit, replacing the entire unit is best.

Damaged drainage systems: Not only are leaks inconvenient, but they are caused by problems such as worn-out pipes and valves; these components are particular to the disposal’s model and will need to be custom ordered. However, in this case, replacing your entire disposal unit with a more efficient one will prove more cost-effective.

Broken seals: Small rips and tears can be patched; others, particularly those that have been ignored for a long period of time, can cause the body of the disposal to rust and require replacement.

What are some easy ways you can maintain your disposal?

You can extend the life of your garbage disposal through proper upkeep and maintenance.

Here are simple ways to take care of your unit:

Run the motor regularly: Even if you don’t have any leftovers to feed the disposal, it is important to rev the motor every once in awhile to prevent rust or debris from accumulating.

Rinse with cold water: Did you pour grease down the drain? Cool if off by rinsing the disposal with cold water. This allows the grease to solidify instead of collecting on the undersides of the disposal’s blades.

Don’t overwork the disposal: Large items should be cut up before being placed in the drain. Never force your disposal to cut up items that could wear it down. These include eggshells, fibrous vegetables, bones, and other hard-to-shred items.

Keep it clean: Run a little soap through your disposal. This simple action will keep the blades sharp, fresh, and ready to work.
