Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal problems we regularly fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t start.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal stinks and the smell won’t dissipate.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.

You should always drizzle cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water sets fats that have been discarded. This makes it simpler for the system to chop them up.

Garbage disposals also need frequent use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

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

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This area often 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 replace your garbage disposal.

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

Having a skilled technician like one from San Antonio Air Service Experts determine and fix the problem can help locate other components that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t find yourself fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
