Common Garbage Disposal Problems & Solutions

Most people take their garbage disposals for granted until an issue arises. Without a functioning garbage disposal, not only might it result in potentially costly repairs, but foul smells can cause unpleasantness throughout your home.

Here are some of the most common problems our Austin plumbers frequently experience:

  • Hums or jams - When the motor hums, the machine fails to grind, or there are no loud noises, this often means the garbage disposal is either clogged or jammed. You can shut off the garbage disposal and disconnect it from the electric socket. In most cases, large objects such as bones, small utensils, or fruit pits are the main culprits. Using a hex wrench, unscrew the hex-shaped hole under the sink. Remove the object obstructing the garbage disposal.
  • Grinds poorly - While the garbage disposal is properly working, it fails to grind. Either the blades have been worn down or are broken. The best solution is to replace the entire garbage disposal solution.
  • Clogs - Water in the sink stands and fails to drain. In most cases, the main problem is the plumbing, not the garbage disposal. Whether your pipes are clogged or some other plumbing issue, contact a professional to take a look.
  • Leaks - When the garbage disposal is leaking, find the source of the leak. In most cases, there is a loose end which requires tightening.

The following are helpful tips to keep your garbage disposal in good shape:

  • Do not overfill the garbage disposal.
  • Always urn water prior to use.
  • Use cold water when operating the garbage disposal since hot water can melt various types of fats and clog the disposal and pipes upon cooling.
  • Avoid grinding bones, metal, glass, rubber, or coffee grounds.
  • Never pour chemicals, such as bleach cleaners, that can cause substantial harm to the machine.
  • If something is jamming the garbage disposal, shut off the power and use tongs to remove the obstructing object.
