Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal problems we frequently fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t operating properly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal reeks and the scent won’t diffuse.
  • 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 solidifies greases that have been dumped in. This makes it easier for the system to shred them.

Garbage disposals also must have everyday use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired if you can identify 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 stop cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location 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 install a new garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer many hours to find and complete simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when deciding to take care of the problem on your own.

Having a professional technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning identify and fix the problem can help catch other components that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t find yourself fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
