Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are several garbage disposal problems we frequently fix:
- Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t running properly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal smells bad and the odor won’t go away.
- Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.
You should always drizzle cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water solidifies fats that have been poured in. This makes it smoother for the system to chop them up.
Garbage disposals also need everyday use to avoid malfunction.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired if you can locate the part that's leading to the problem.
If you find a worn out or leaky part, put in a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Wear and tear on the seals
- Unsecured pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
- Cracks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This spot often suffers from leaks as well.
These malfunctions 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 find and make simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when attempting to tackle the problem by yourself.
Having a professional technician like one from Falso Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning identify and fix the problem can help find other pieces that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t be dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
