Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some garbage disposal problems we commonly handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working properly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal reeks and the odor won’t diffuse.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.

You should always drizzle cold water into the garbage disposal while crushing foods. Cold water hardens fats that have been dumped in. This makes it smoother for the system to shred them.

Garbage disposals also must have frequent use to avoid rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can find the part that's leading to 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:

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

Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location often suffers from leaks as well.

These problems 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 locate and finish simple repairs, so include that in the cost when choosing to tackle the problem on your own.

Having a professional technician like one from Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning diagnose and take care of the problem can help find other parts that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t be fixing the same disposal two weeks later.
