Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal issues we regularly fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • 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 sluggishly through the disposal.

You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water solidifies fats that have been poured in. This makes it simpler for the system to break them up.

Garbage disposals also need everyday use to avoid malfunction.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

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

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Decay on the seals
  • Detatched pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and cracked
  • Cracks in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, which enables self-cleaning. This area frequently experiences leaks as well.

These problems 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 many hours to find and make simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when deciding to take care of the problem without professional help.

Having a professional technician like one from Hammond Plumbing & Heating identify and take care of the problem can help catch other components that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t be fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
