Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal troubles we regularly repair:

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

You should always drizzle cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water hardens fats that have been dumped in. This makes it simpler for the system to chop them up.

Garbage disposals also must have everyday use to avoid malfunction.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired if you can find the part that's causing the problem.

If you find a beat up 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 enables self-cleaning. This location often suffers from leaks as well.

These problems 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 an entire afternoon to locate and complete simple repairs, so include that in the cost when attempting to tackle the problem by yourself.

Having a skilled technician like one from Stevenson Service Experts identify and repair the problem can help find other parts that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t end up dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
