Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal problems we regularly handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • 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 solidifies oils that have been poured in. This makes it smoother 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 fixed if you can identify 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 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 connected to the dishwasher, which allows for 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 install a new garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer a lot of time to diagnose and make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when attempting to tackle the problem without professional help.

Having a skilled technician like one from Neal Harris Service Experts diagnose and take care of the problem can help locate other components that may be about to break. That way, you won’t end up fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
