Safely Troubleshooting Garbage Disposal Problems

Not all garbage disposal issues necessarily call for professional repairs. You may be able to resolve the problem yourself, but there are several important safety tips you must follow.

First, make sure the disposal is switched off and unplugged before attempting any repairs. Use a flashlight to check for any visible objects or debris causing a clog or jam. Some disposals have a reset button that you can press to reset the motor if it gets overloaded. By trying these simple steps, you may be able to resolve minor issues without any further repairs.

Familiarize yourself with the components of the disposal, such as the shredder ring, impellers, and motor, so that you can identify any potential issues. Be cautious when working with the blades or any sharp parts and consider using protective gloves.

Regular maintenance and adhering to best practices can help prevent garbage disposal problems. Avoid putting non-food items, fibrous foods (like celery or potato peels), hard bones, or excessive amounts of food waste into the disposal. Use cold water while running the disposal to solidify fats and oils, which can help prevent clogs. Grinding ice cubes or citrus peels occasionally can help clean the disposal and reduce odors.

Signs Your Garbage Disposal Needs Professional Attention

While basic troubleshooting and maintenance can resolve many garbage disposal issues, there may be situations where it’s best to call our professionals at Sunrise Plumbing. If you encounter a severe clog, are dealing with persistent leaks, or are unsure about the repair process, do not hesitate to request our garbage disposal repair services in Rockwall, TX. Attempting complex repairs without the necessary knowledge or tools can lead to further damage.

You should not wait to request professional repairs if you are dealing with any of the following issues:

  • Persistent bad odors. Persistent foul smells emanating from the garbage disposal can indicate trapped food particles within the unit that cannot be reached through regular cleaning. This necessitates professional intervention to disassemble and thoroughly clean the unit.
  • Strange noises. Unusual noises, such as metallic grinding, rattling, or humming, can indicate a serious problem. Objects trapped inside, loose bearings, or a failing motor could be to blame. Ignoring these sounds can result in further damage, making it crucial to call a professional.
  • Frequent resets. If you find yourself constantly having to hit the reset button on your garbage disposal, it's a sign of an underlying issue. Frequent resets indicate that the disposal is struggling to handle its load, which could be due to motor problems or electrical issues.
  • Water leaks. Any sign of leakage from the garbage disposal means professional repairs are needed. Leaks can originate from faulty seals or cracks in the housing, which not only compromise the disposal's efficiency but can also lead to significant water damage under your sink.
  • Ineffectiveness. If your disposal can't grind food scraps as effectively as it used to, or if it takes longer to break down waste, it may be suffering from dull blades or a decrease in motor efficiency. Professional repairs or replacements may be necessary to restore its functionality.
  • Frequent clogging. While occasional clogs can happen, frequent clogging tends to be a sign of a deeper issue. It may indicate that the disposal isn't powerful enough for your needs or that there is a blockage that needs professional attention to clear properly.
