Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some garbage disposal problems we regularly fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t start.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal reeks and the scent won’t go away.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining sluggishly through the disposal.

You should always drizzle cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water hardens greases that have been poured in. This makes it easier for the system to break them up.

Garbage disposals also must have everyday use to avoid corrosion.

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 beat up or leaky part, replace it. 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 cracked
  • Breaks in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location commonly has leaks as well.

These problems can be repaired 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 an entire afternoon to locate and finish simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when choosing to handle the problem on your own.

Having a skilled technician like one from Pardee Service Experts diagnose and take care of the problem can help locate other components that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t be repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
