Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some garbage disposal issues we commonly repair:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal reeks and the odor won’t dissipate.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining sluggishly through the disposal.

You should always drizzle cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water hardens fats that have been poured in. This makes it easier for the system to shred them.

Garbage disposals also require frequent use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

If you find a worn out or leaky part, put in a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This area frequently experiences leaks as well.

These issues 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 find and make simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when choosing to handle the problem on your own.

Having a professional technician like one from Finch Air Conditioning & Heating identify and take care of the problem can help locate other pieces that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t end up fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
