Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal issues we commonly fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t operating properly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal stinks and the scent won’t diffuse.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.

You should always trickle 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 chop them up.

Garbage disposals also must have everyday use to avoid rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

If you find a worn out or leaky part, replace it. Don’t use plumber’s putty to stop cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Deterioration on the seals
  • Unsecured pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
  • Cracks in the garbage disposal body

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

These malfunctions can be repaired 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 an entire afternoon to locate and make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to handle the problem by yourself.

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