Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal troubles we regularly repair:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal stinks and the odor won’t dissipate.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining sluggishly through the disposal.

You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while crushing foods. Cold water solidifies oils that have been dumped in. This makes it easier for the system to chop them up.

Garbage disposals also must have everyday use to avoid malfunction.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be fixed if you can locate the part that's leading to the problem.

If you find a fatigued or leaky part, put in 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
  • Unsecured pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and cracked
  • Cracks in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This location commonly suffers from leaks as well.

These problems 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 many hours to diagnose and complete simple repairs, so include that in the cost when attempting to take care of the problem on your own.

Having a professional technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and take care of the problem can help locate other parts that may be about to break. That way, you won’t be dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
