Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are some garbage disposal issues we frequently fix:
- Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working right.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the odor won’t dissipate.
- Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.
You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while crushing foods. Cold water sets oils 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 find the part that's leading to 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 split
- Cracks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location commonly experiences 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 install a new garbage disposal.
It can take a DIYer an entire afternoon to find and complete simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when deciding to handle the problem on your own.
Having an Expert technician like one from Rob's Albertan Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and repair the problem can help catch other components that may be about to break. That way, you won’t end up repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
