Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are a few garbage disposal issues we frequently repair:
- Garbage disposal won’t run.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working properly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal smells bad and the smell won’t go away.
- 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 poured in. This makes it smoother for the system to chop them up.
Garbage disposals also must have regular use to avoid malfunction.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired if you can locate the part that's causing the problem.
If you find a fatigued or leaky part, put in a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Deterioration on the seals
- Loose pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
- Cracks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This location often suffers from leaks as well.
These issues can be fixed 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 a lot of time to find and finish simple repairs, so include that in the cost when choosing to tackle the problem on your own.
Having a skilled technician like one from Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and repair the problem can help find other parts that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t end up fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
