Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal problems we regularly repair:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t running correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal reeks and the scent won’t go away.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.

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

Garbage disposals also must have frequent use to avoid rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be fixed if you can identify the part that's leading to 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 enables self-cleaning. This location 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 a lot of time to diagnose and complete simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when deciding to tackle the problem by yourself.

Having a skilled technician like one from Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning identify and fix the problem can help find other parts that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t be fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
