Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are several garbage disposal troubles we frequently handle:
- Garbage disposal won’t start.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t running correctly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the scent 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 dumped in. This makes it smoother for the system to break them up.
Garbage disposals also need regular use to avoid rust.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired if you can locate the part that's leading to the problem.
If you find a fatigued 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 issues 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 an entire afternoon to locate and finish simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when choosing to take care of the problem without professional help.
Having a skilled technician like one from 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 fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
