Common Garbage Disposal Repair Issues

  • Complete breakdown: If your garbage disposal doesn’t turn on, it may just need to be reset. Tripped circuit breakers may also be the cause.
  • Jammed or Clogged: Food and other items can clump together and jam or clog your disposal. Jams and clogs can often be cleared and don’t require any additional maintenance.
  • Strange Noise: Does your garbage disposal make strange noises?  Sometimes the motor needs to be replaced — but it’s often just a screw that needs tightening or some other small adjustment. Blades, bearings, and other parts can become loose or worn and our trained plumbers can quickly diagnose your problem and offer you options.
  • Humming without disposing or draining: If your disposal makes a humming noise when turned on, the pipe or flywheel may be clogged. Our plumbers are usually able to remove the blockage to get things working properly again.
  • Leaking disposal: A broken pipe or damage to the disposal could cause it to leak into the space under the sink. You’ll want to get this reapaired ASAP as water damage, mold, and other problems can result. We’ll assess the problem and offer you the most cost-effective solution.

How Do I Keep my Disposal in Good Shape?

To reduce your chances of having to call a plumbing contractor in the first place, practice good habits such as:

  • Avoiding putting non-food items in the disposal.
  • Don’t dispose cooking oil or grease in the garbage disposal.
  • Add only small items of food waste, as large pieces can cause a clog your disposal.
  • Cut larger items into small pieces first.
  • Refresh your disposal by running lemon or citrus peels through it (***NEVER put your hand in the disposal***).
