Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several 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 breaking down foods. Cold water sets fats that have been poured in. This makes it smoother for the system to shred them.

Garbage disposals also need frequent use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

If you find a worn out or leaky part, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to stop 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
  • 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 issues can be fixed 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 finish simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when choosing to tackle the problem on your own.

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