Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal problems we commonly fix:

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

You should always drizzle cold water into the garbage disposal while crushing foods. Cold water sets greases that have been poured in. This makes it easier for the system to chop them up.

Garbage disposals also need everyday use to avoid malfunction.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can locate the part that's creating the problem.

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

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This spot commonly suffers from leaks as well.

These issues can be fixed 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 finish simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when attempting to handle the problem without professional help.

Having a skilled technician like one from Strand Brothers Service Experts identify and repair the problem can help locate other pieces that may be about to break. That way, you won’t end up fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
