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 right.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the odor won’t dissipate.
  • 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 easier for the system to break them up.

Garbage disposals also require frequent use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can find 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 stop cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Decay on the seals
  • Unsecured pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and cracked
  • 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 install a new garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer an entire afternoon to find and make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when attempting to handle the problem by yourself.

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