Expert Garbage Disposal Repair and Installation in Jacksonville

We can find the the best garbage disposal for your kitchen’s needs and budget, ensuring professional installation. We can also assist with garbage disposal repair through quick diagnosis and repair service.

Common Garbage Disposal Problems

A working garbage disposal saves time and effort in the kitchen. Unfortunately, it’s not necessarily clear what should and shouldn’t go in them, which results in clogs or damage. Here are a few problems we commonly handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • Disposal makes noise but won’t run correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • An unpleasant odor has formed.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.

You need to run chilled water into the disposal while it’s on since cold water solidifies any oil poured in, making it easier for the blades to break waste down. Garbage disposals also need to be used regularly to avoid the formation of rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal is an easy fix if you can find the root cause. Any old or damaged parts should be replaced. Disposals may start to leak due to:

  • Deterioration of the seals.
  • Loose pipes.
  • Damaged flanges or gaskets.
  • Damage to the garbage disposal itself.
  • Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, allowing for self-cleaning. This connection can leak if it’s not securely fastened.

Most leaks can be fixed except when in the body or interior lining of the disposal. If this is the case, you will need to get a new garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer an entire afternoon to locate and complete this and other simple repairs, so keep that in mind when thinking about calling a pro. Having an Expert technician like one from Air Engineers Service Experts diagnose and repair your problem offers time to notice other components about to fail. You can resolve both malfunctions right then and there.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • To get rid of the risk of your garbage disposal smelling, food scraps should be ground up right away with cold water. Thirty seconds is usually more than enough time. Avoid dumping coffee grounds, eggshells, potato peels and banana peels into your disposal, because they frequently cause drainage issues and unpleasant smells. While bleach seems like a great idea for cleaning your garbage disposal, it hardens grease and other food residue in your pipes, producing clogs.

    Our plumbing Experts advise using these cleaning solutions each week to keep your disposal smelling brand-new:

    • Hot water and baking soda
    • Hot water and dish soap
    • Hot water and vinegar

    You can also buy garbage disposal pods or grind up citrus peels to help clear out odors. If your garbage disposal still smells, you could be dealing with a leak (especially if the smell resembles a sewer). Contact us at 904-450-5672 for Expert plumbing service.
