Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some garbage disposal issues we commonly handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t turn on.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working properly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal stinks and the smell won’t dissipate.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining slowly through the disposal.

You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while breaking down foods. Cold water hardens oils that have been discarded. This makes it easier for the system to chop them up.

Garbage disposals also must have regular use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

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

If you find a fatigued 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
  • Unsecured pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
  • Cracks in the garbage disposal body

Some disposals are linked to the dishwasher, which allows for self-cleaning. This location frequently experiences 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 diagnose and make simple repairs, so factor that into the cost when choosing to tackle the problem by yourself.

Having a professional technician like one from Stevenson Service Experts determine and fix the problem can help find other pieces that may be about to stop working. That way, you won’t be repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
