Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some garbage disposal issues we commonly fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t start.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t running properly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the smell won’t dissipate.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.

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

Garbage disposals also require everyday use to avoid malfunction.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

If you find a fatigued or leaky part, get a new one. 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 cracked
  • Cracks in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location often experiences 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 get a new garbage disposal.

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

Having an Expert technician like one from Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning identify and take care of the problem can help locate other components that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t end up repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
