Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some garbage disposal issues we commonly fix:

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

You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water solidifies oils that have been poured in. This makes it easier for the system to shred them.

Garbage disposals also must have frequent use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

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

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Decay on the seals
  • Unsecured pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and split
  • Cracks in the garbage disposal body

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

These malfunctions can be fixed 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 many hours to locate and make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to take care of the problem on your own.

Having a professional technician like one from Kingston Home Services by Enercare diagnose and take care of the problem can help find other parts that may be about to break. That way, you won’t be dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
