Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are several garbage disposal problems we frequently handle:
- Garbage disposal won’t start.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working right.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the smell won’t go away.
- 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 sets greases that have been poured in. This makes it easier for the system to shred them.
Garbage disposals also need everyday use to avoid rust.
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 fatigued 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 hooked up to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location often has 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 install a new garbage disposal.
It can take a DIYer a lot of time to locate and finish simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when attempting to handle the problem on your own.
Having an Expert technician like one from Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning diagnose and fix the problem can help find other components that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t be repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
