Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some garbage disposal problems we regularly fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t start.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t running correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the smell won’t diffuse.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.

You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water hardens oils that have been poured in. This makes it easier for the system to break them up.

Garbage disposals also require regular use to avoid malfunction.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

If you find a worn out or leaky part, replace it. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Wear and tear on the seals
  • Loose pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and cracked
  • Fissures in the garbage disposal body

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

These malfunctions can be taken care of 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 many hours to find and make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when choosing to handle the problem by yourself.

Having a professional technician like one from Norrell Service Experts determine and take care of the problem can help catch other pieces that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t be fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
