Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal problems we frequently fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t start.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the odor 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 eliminating foods. Cold water hardens fats that have been dumped in. This makes it easier for the system to shred them.

Garbage disposals also require regular use to avoid rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

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

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which enables self-cleaning. This spot commonly suffers from 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 install a new garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer a lot of time to locate and finish simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to tackle the problem by yourself.

Having a professional technician like one from Air Engineers Service Experts determine and take care of the problem can help find other parts that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t end up dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
