Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal troubles we regularly fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t start.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working properly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the scent won’t diffuse.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.

You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water solidifies fats that have been discarded. This makes it easier for the system to shred them.

Garbage disposals also must have everyday use to avoid rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can locate the part that's creating the problem.

If you find a beat up or leaky part, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Decay on the seals
  • Detatched pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
  • Fissures in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which enables self-cleaning. This area commonly 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 get a new garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer many hours to diagnose and make simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when deciding to handle the problem without professional help.

Having a skilled technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and fix the problem can help locate other parts that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t be fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
