Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal troubles we regularly repair:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t operating right.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal stinks and the odor won’t go away.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.

You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water solidifies fats that have been discarded. This makes it easier for the system to break them up.

Garbage disposals also must have regular use to avoid malfunction.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired if you can locate the part that's leading to the problem.

If you find a beat up or leaky part, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which enables self-cleaning. This area commonly has leaks as well.

These malfunctions 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 get a new garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer many hours to diagnose and make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when choosing to take care of the problem without professional help.

Having a skilled technician like one from Strand Brothers Service Experts determine and take care of the problem can help catch other components that may be about to break. That way, you won’t end up repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
