Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are a few garbage disposal troubles we regularly handle:
- Garbage disposal won’t start.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t running correctly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal smells bad and the smell won’t go away.
- Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.
You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water hardens fats that have been dumped in. This makes it easier for the system to chop them up.
Garbage disposals also must have frequent use to avoid malfunction.
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 worn out or leaky part, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to stop cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Deterioration on the seals
- Detatched pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and cracked
- Breaks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location commonly suffers from leaks as well.
These problems can be repaired 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 diagnose and complete simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when deciding to tackle the problem on your own.
Having a professional technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning diagnose and repair the problem can help catch other parts that may be about to break. That way, you won’t find yourself repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
