Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal problems we frequently repair:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working right.
  • 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 oils that have been poured 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 fixed if you can find the part that's causing the problem.

If you find a beat up or leaky part, get a new one. 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 hooked up to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This area commonly experiences 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 an Expert 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.
