Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are a few garbage disposal problems we commonly handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t running correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal stinks and the smell won’t diffuse.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.

You should always run cold water into the garbage disposal while eliminating foods. Cold water sets oils that have been dumped in. This makes it simpler for the system to break them up.

Garbage disposals also must have everyday use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be repaired if you can locate the part that's leading to the problem.

If you find a beat up or leaky part, put in a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to plug cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

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

Some disposals are connected to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location commonly has leaks as well.

These problems can be repaired 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 an entire afternoon to locate and complete simple repairs, so consider that with the cost when deciding to tackle the problem without professional help.

Having an Expert technician like one from Becht/Givens Service Experts identify and fix the problem can help locate other pieces that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t end up repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
