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 right.
- Disposal is leaking.
- Disposal stinks and the smell won’t diffuse.
- Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.
You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water hardens fats that have been poured in. This makes it simpler for the system to break them up.
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 leading to 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 linked to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This spot frequently experiences 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 replace your garbage disposal.
It can take a DIYer a lot of time to locate and complete simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when choosing to tackle the problem without professional help.
Having an Expert technician like one from Aramendia Plumbing, Heating & Air identify and fix the problem can help find other parts that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t end up dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
