Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are some garbage disposal troubles we commonly fix:
- Garbage disposal won’t start.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t running properly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the odor won’t dissipate.
- Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.
You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water hardens fats that have been discarded. This makes it easier for the system to break them up.
Garbage disposals also need frequent use to avoid rust.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired if you can identify the part that's leading to the problem.
If you find a worn out or leaky part, put in 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 split
- Fissures in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location 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 locate and make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to take care of the problem by yourself.
Having a skilled technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and repair the problem can help locate other pieces that may be about to break. That way, you won’t find yourself repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
