Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal problems we commonly fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the odor won’t go away.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining slowly 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 chop them up.

Garbage disposals also must have regular use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

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

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This area often suffers from leaks as well.

These problems can be repaired except for cracks in the body or interior lining of the disposal. If this is your problem, you will need to replace your garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer an entire afternoon to diagnose and complete simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when deciding to take care of the problem by yourself.

Having a professional technician like one from Peachtree Service Experts determine and fix the problem can help catch other parts that may be about to break. That way, you won’t end up dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
