Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal troubles we regularly handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal reeks and the odor won’t go away.
  • 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 break them up.

Garbage disposals also need everyday use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can locate 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 stop cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Wear and tear 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 spot often experiences 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 install 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 deciding to handle the problem on your own.

Having an Expert technician like one from Rob's Albertan Service Experts identify and repair the problem can help catch other components that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t end up repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
