Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal problems we regularly handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working properly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the scent won’t dissipate.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.

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

Garbage disposals also must have everyday use to avoid rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

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

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which enables self-cleaning. This area often 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 locate and finish simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when deciding to tackle the problem by yourself.

Having a professional technician like one from Chief / Bauer Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning determine and take care of the problem can help catch other pieces that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t end up repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
