Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some garbage disposal problems we regularly handle:

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

You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water solidifies greases that have been dumped in. This makes it smoother for the system to chop them up.

Garbage disposals also require regular use to avoid rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

If you find a worn out or leaky part, replace it. Don’t use plumber’s putty to plug 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
  • Fissures in the garbage disposal body

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

These issues 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 diagnose and finish simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when deciding to take care of the problem on your own.

Having a skilled technician like one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning diagnose and fix the problem can help locate other pieces that may be about to break. That way, you won’t find yourself dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
