Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are several garbage disposal issues we commonly fix:
- Garbage disposal won’t run.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal reeks and the odor won’t dissipate.
- Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.
You should always drizzle cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water solidifies fats that have been dumped in. This makes it smoother for the system to chop them up.
Garbage disposals also require regular use to avoid corrosion.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can identify the part that's leading to the problem.
If you find a worn out or leaky part, replace it. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.
Disposals may leak over time due to:
- Decay on the seals
- Detatched pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and cracked
- Cracks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location frequently suffers from 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 replace your garbage disposal.
It can take a DIYer many hours to find and complete simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when attempting to tackle the problem without professional help.
Having a professional technician like one from Midland Air Service Experts determine and fix the problem can help find other pieces that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t find yourself repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
