Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal issues we frequently fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t operating right.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the smell won’t go away.
  • 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 poured in. This makes it simpler for the system to break them up.

Garbage disposals also must have everyday use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be fixed if you can find the part that's leading to the problem.

If you find a beat up or leaky part, put in a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Decay on the seals
  • Loose pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and split
  • Cracks in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which enables self-cleaning. This location often experiences 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 get a new garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer a lot of time to locate and finish simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when choosing to take care of the problem without professional help.

Having an Expert technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and repair the problem can help locate other pieces that may be about to break. That way, you won’t find yourself dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
