Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal problems we frequently handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t start.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t operating properly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal reeks and the smell won’t diffuse.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.

You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while crushing foods. Cold water solidifies oils that have been poured 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 fixed if you can identify the part that's leading to the problem.

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

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Deterioration on the seals
  • Unsecured 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 often has leaks as well.

These malfunctions can be fixed 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 locate and complete simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to handle the problem on your own.

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