Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal issues we commonly fix:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t running properly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal reeks and the scent won’t go away.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.

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

Garbage disposals also require frequent use to avoid rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be restored if you can locate 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:

  • Deterioration on the seals
  • Loose pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and cracked
  • Breaks in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, which provides self-cleaning. This location commonly suffers from leaks as well.

These issues 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 replace your garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer many hours to find and finish simple repairs, so include that in the cost when deciding to take care of the problem without professional help.

Having a skilled technician like one from Epperson Service Experts identify and repair the problem can help catch other parts that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t find yourself dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
