Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal problems we regularly fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the odor won’t dissipate.
  • 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 poured in. This makes it simpler for the system to break them up.

Garbage disposals also need regular use to avoid malfunction.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired 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 stop cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which enables self-cleaning. This location often 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 an entire afternoon to find and complete simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to tackle the problem by yourself.

Having a skilled technician like one from Eveready Service Experts diagnose and fix the problem can help find other pieces that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t be repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
