Common Garbage Disposal Problems and Solutions
There are some issues that can arise with regular garbage disposal use. Like any mechanism, garbage disposals are subject to routine wear and tear. They may also become damaged when unsuitable items fall into them and cause damage.
Be mindful of these common garbage disposal issues:
- Disposal does not turn on: We can determine why this has happened, reset the disposal, check the circuit breaker box, or replace the disposal if the motor no longer works.
- Jams: The disposal may become jammed with food or other items. We can clear jams and help customers know what they should not put down their garbage disposals.
- Unusual noises: The unit might make noises such as whirring or clicking. Once again, the motor may need to be replaced, or we may need to tighten or replace screws, bearings, lugs, or blades.
- Leaks: The garbage disposal may leak into the cupboard area below the sink, leading to potential water damage and other issues.
- Humming noise: The disposal may only make a humming noise when the switch is flipped. This might be an indicator of a clog in the pipe or in the flywheel that we can safely remove.
