Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are some garbage disposal troubles we frequently handle:
- Garbage disposal won’t run.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working properly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal smells bad and the smell won’t diffuse.
- Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.
You should always drizzle 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 corrosion.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can find 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 stop cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Decay on the seals
- Unsecured pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
- Cracks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which enables self-cleaning. This area often has leaks as well.
These malfunctions can be fixed 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 diagnose and make simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when deciding to take care of the problem without professional help.
Having a skilled technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning identify and fix the problem can help find other parts that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t end up dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
