Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Here are a few garbage disposal problems we regularly handle:
- Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
- Disposal makes noise but isn’t running right.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal stinks and the smell won’t go away.
- Water won’t drain or is draining sluggishly through the disposal.
You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water hardens oils that have been dumped in. This makes it simpler for the system to chop them up.
Garbage disposals also must have frequent use to avoid corrosion.
Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal
A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired if you can find the part that's leading to 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:
- Deterioration on the seals
- Detatched pipes
- Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
- Breaks in the garbage disposal body
Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This spot frequently has leaks as well.
These issues can be fixed 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 complete simple repairs, so include that in the cost when choosing to handle the problem on your own.
Having a professional technician like one from Orangutan Home Services determine and take care of the problem can help catch other parts that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t find yourself fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
