Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are several garbage disposal issues we frequently repair:
- Garbage disposal won’t start.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working properly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the smell won’t go away.
- Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.
You should always drizzle cold water into the garbage disposal while crushing foods. Cold water sets fats that have been dumped in. This makes it simpler for the system to break them up.
Garbage disposals also need everyday use to avoid rust.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can locate the part that's causing the problem.
If you find a beat up or leaky part, replace it. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Decay on the seals
- Detatched pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and split
- Cracks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This area commonly 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 replace your garbage disposal.
It can take a DIYer many hours to find and finish simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when attempting to take care of the problem without professional help.
Having a professional technician like one from Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts determine and fix the problem can help catch other pieces that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t be fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
