Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some garbage disposal issues we commonly handle:

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

You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water hardens fats that have been poured in. This makes it smoother 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 fixed if you can locate the part that's leading to the problem.

If you find a beat up or leaky part, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to stop cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Wear and tear on the seals
  • Detatched pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and cracked
  • Fissures in the garbage disposal body

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

It can take a DIYer a lot of time to locate and make simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when attempting to handle the problem on your own.

Having an Expert technician like one from Broad Ripple Service Experts identify and fix the problem can help find other components that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t be repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
