Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal problems we regularly handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t start.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working right.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the odor won’t go away.
  • 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 sets fats that have been dumped in. This makes it smoother for the system to break them up.

Garbage disposals also need everyday use to avoid malfunction.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be fixed if you can find 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:

  • Decay on the seals
  • Unsecured pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and split
  • Fissures in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This location commonly experiences leaks as well.

These problems 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 find and finish simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to tackle the problem by yourself.

Having an Expert technician like one from Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning diagnose and fix the problem can help find other components that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t end up repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
