Common Repair Problems
- Garbage disposal won't turn on - Whenever this happens, try resetting the little button located at the bottom of most waste disposal units. If it happens frequently, you might want to consider getting the help of a professional.
- Garbage disposal is jammed- If you allow large hard objects and fibrous foods like celery to go through the disposal, it might cause it to stop working. Don't continue to run the disposal when it's jammed as this can burn out the motor. At the bottom of the disposal find a hex-shaped hole and fix the hex wrench into the hole while rotating the masher plate and attempt to clear the jam. If this fails, it may be time to call our technicians.
- Clogged drains – Built up grease and oils harden and stay inside your garbage disposal causing clogged drains. In this case, you will need the help of our professional plumbers who will dismantle the drain pipe and use a drain auger to clear the clog.
- Leaking – If you notice leaks within the unit, try to identify their source. Some leaks will need a replacement of the rubber gasket, mounting screws or even the entire garbage disposal. An experienced plumber with the skills to prevent leaks and malfunctions is available to help out with this issue.
- Unpleasant noises – If the appliance is unreasonably noisy, ensure that something unusual hasn't entered the unit. Loose mounting screws, worn lugs, and blades can also result in a noisy disposal. If none of this is the cause, our technicians can help you decide if it's time to replace the entire unit.
