Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal issues we frequently fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal stinks and the smell won’t diffuse.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining sluggishly through the disposal.

You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water hardens fats that have been dumped in. This makes it simpler for the system to shred them.

Garbage disposals also require everyday use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be fixed if you can identify the part that's creating the problem.

If you find a worn out or leaky part, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Deterioration on the seals
  • Detatched pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and split
  • Breaks in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, which enables self-cleaning. This spot frequently 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 replace your garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer a lot of time to find and finish simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when attempting to tackle the problem without professional help.

Having a skilled technician like one from Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air identify and fix the problem can help find other parts that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t be fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
