Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are a few garbage disposal problems we regularly repair:
- Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the smell won’t dissipate.
- Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.
You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water sets greases that have been dumped in. This makes it simpler for the system to chop them up.
Garbage disposals also require frequent use to avoid malfunction.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired if you can locate the part that's causing the problem.
If you find a fatigued or leaky part, replace it. Don’t use plumber’s putty to plug cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Wear and tear on the seals
- Loose 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 often suffers from leaks as well.
These issues 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 replace your garbage disposal.
It can take a DIYer many hours to diagnose and make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to tackle the problem without professional help.
Having a skilled technician like one from Midway Services identify and take care of the problem can help find other parts that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t find yourself repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
