Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are a few garbage disposal problems we commonly fix:
- Garbage disposal won’t run.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t running right.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the smell won’t go away.
- Water won’t drain or is draining sluggishly through the disposal.
You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water solidifies fats that have been discarded. This makes it smoother for the system to chop them up.
Garbage disposals also must have frequent use to avoid corrosion.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can locate the part that's leading to the problem.
If you find a beat up or leaky part, replace it. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Deterioration on the seals
- Loose pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
- Breaks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This area commonly 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 replace your garbage disposal.
It can take a DIYer a lot of time to diagnose and complete simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to tackle the problem by yourself.
Having a professional technician like one from Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning diagnose and fix the problem can help find other parts that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t find yourself fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
