Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some garbage disposal problems we frequently handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t operating right.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal stinks and the odor won’t dissipate.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.

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

Garbage disposals also need regular use to avoid corrosion.

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 beat up or leaky part, replace it. Don’t use plumber’s putty to plug cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This spot commonly has 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 install a new garbage disposal.

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

Having an Expert technician like one from Donelson Air Service Experts identify and fix the problem can help catch other parts that may be about to break. That way, you won’t end up repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
