Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are several garbage disposal troubles we frequently repair:

  • Garbage disposal won’t start.
  • Disposal makes noise but isn’t working correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • Disposal smells bad and the odor won’t go away.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining sluggishly through the disposal.

You should always trickle cold water into the garbage disposal while crushing foods. Cold water solidifies oils that have been poured in. This makes it easier for the system to chop them up.

Garbage disposals also must have frequent use to avoid corrosion.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal can be fixed if you can find the part that's causing the problem.

If you find a worn out or leaky part, get a new one. Don’t use plumber’s putty to fill cracks.

Disposals may leak over time due to:

  • Decay on the seals
  • Detatched pipes
  • Flanges or gaskets that have dried out and broken
  • Cracks in the garbage disposal body

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

These malfunctions can be repaired 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 an entire afternoon to locate and make simple repairs, so include that in the cost when choosing to tackle the problem on your own.

Having an Expert technician like one from BW/Cook Service Experts determine and repair the problem can help locate other components that may be about to go out. That way, you won’t find yourself dealing with the same disposal two weeks later.
