Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are a few garbage disposal troubles we frequently handle:
- Garbage disposal won’t start.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working properly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the odor won’t go away.
- Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.
You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while crushing foods. Cold water hardens greases that have been dumped in. This makes it simpler for the system to shred them.
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 find the part that's creating the problem.
If you find a worn out or leaky part, put in 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 broken
- Cracks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which enables self-cleaning. This spot often suffers from leaks as well.
These problems can be fixed 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 an entire afternoon to locate and complete simple repairs, so include that in the cost when attempting to tackle the problem by yourself.
Having a skilled technician like one from A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and take care of the problem can help locate other parts that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t find yourself repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
