Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are several garbage disposal troubles we frequently repair:
- Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working properly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal stinks and the odor won’t dissipate.
- Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.
You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water hardens greases 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 fixed if you can locate the part that's causing the problem.
If you find a fatigued or leaky part, put in 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 linked to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This area frequently suffers from 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 a lot of time to diagnose and finish simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when deciding to handle the problem without professional help.
Having a skilled technician like one from Church Services diagnose and repair the problem can help find other components that may be about to break. That way, you won’t be fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
