Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are some garbage disposal issues we commonly fix:
- Garbage disposal won’t run.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal smells bad and the scent won’t diffuse.
- Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.
You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water sets fats that have been dumped in. This makes it simpler for the system to shred them.
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 find the part that's creating the problem.
If you find a beat up or leaky part, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to plug cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Decay on the seals
- Unsecured pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and split
- Fissures in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This area frequently has leaks as well.
These problems can be taken care of 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 many hours to locate and make simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when deciding to handle the problem without professional help.
Having an Expert technician like one from Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and repair the problem can help find other components that may be about to break. That way, you won’t find yourself repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
