Problems You May Have With Your Garbage Disposal

Jammed Disposals

If you have a jammed garbage disposal you may hear a humming sound or have water back up or drain slowly in the sink. Items that were improperly disposed of can cause garbage disposal jams to happen from build-up or preventing the disposal blades from turning. Items to avoid putting down your kitchen sink are as follows:

  • Coffee grounds
  • Fruit pits
  • Eggshells
  • Stringy vegetables
  • Fats and oils
  • Bones
  • Non-food items

Make sure to avoid placing too much food down your garbage disposal at the same time and prevent a blockage by doing so.

Non-Working Garbage Disposal

If your garbage disposal won’t even turn on there can be several issues present. With a dead garbage disposal, you may have the electrical switch that needs to be replaced or the circuit breaker that needs to be reset. Certain cases may even show that the motor is dead. With any electrical issues call an electrician.

Strange Smells

With food and other particulars building up within your garbage disposal smells may emit from it. This may point to needing to have the disposal cleaned in order to clear out smells yet if they persist you may need to take apart the disposal.

Leaks can occur from the top, bottom, and side of the garbage disposal with water infiltrating the dishwasher, the drainpipe, or the rest of the plumbing lines.

Certain problems you might find are:

  • Lost putty seals around the disposal
  • Worn gasket, flange, or O-ring
  • Poor connections with the drain pipe or dishwasher

While certain issues can simply be fixed with a repair, others will require parts or whole units replacements. Have an expert plumber inspect your system to find out what kind of garbage disposal repair in Greeley, CO will best help your system.
