What are common garbage disposal problems?


Following a big family meal, your garbage disposal can come in quite handy with the clean-up operation.

At The Clean Plumbers, our local plumbing company specializes in garbage disposal repair. We'll accurately diagnose the problem and then get right to work on flawlessly fixing it. Don't hesitate to give us a call when your garbage disposal fails to work properly.

Common Types of Garbage Disposal Trouble

A humming noise is one common indication of a garbage disposal problem. With a jammed flywheel, the garbage disposal might not correctly activate when you flip the switch, but you may still hear a humming sound coming from it. A seasoned plumber will be able to quickly address this problem and at a moderate cost.

Leaking is another sign of trouble. Garbage disposal leaks often develop at the discharge-drainpipe connection or the dishwasher-disposal connection. Any kind of water leak should be addressed ASAP so that you don't risk water damage occurring in the surrounding area.

If you flip the switch on your garbage disposal and get absolutely nothing at all, then there's a good chance you've got a problem with the electrical supply. Garbage disposals often become unplugged without anyone realizing it, so that's the first thing you'll want to check. Then you can try the reset button. But if you're still not getting any juice, then you'll want to check your breaker.

When a garbage disposal won't drain at all or drains very slowly, you've probably got a clog. You may be able to take care of the issue by just using a pair of pliers. But if the clog is more stubborn, then you can call in an experienced plumber who will have the tools and knowledge to efficiently fix the problem.
