Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal troubles we frequently repair:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t operating properly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal reeks and the scent won’t dissipate.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually 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 smoother for the system to break them up.

Garbage disposals also require frequent use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be fixed 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:

  • Wear and tear on the seals
  • Loose pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
  • Fissures in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This spot often suffers from 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 replace your garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer many hours to find and finish simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when choosing to tackle the problem by yourself.

Having a professional technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and repair the problem can help catch other pieces that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t end up repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
