Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal problems we frequently handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working right.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal reeks and the smell won’t go away.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.

You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water solidifies greases that have been poured in. This makes it simpler for the system to chop them up.

Garbage disposals also must have frequent use to avoid rust.

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, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to stop cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Wear and tear on the seals
  • Detatched pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and cracked
  • Fissures in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This spot commonly suffers from leaks as well.

These malfunctions 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 a lot of time to diagnose and make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when choosing to tackle the problem without professional help.

Having a skilled technician like one from Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing diagnose and fix the problem can help locate other components that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t end up dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
