Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Garbage disposals are quite robust, but they do not last forever.  Especially in situations where they had to deal with the wrong types of food or a foreign object such as a fork, knife, or spoon.  The most common problems are jams and clogs, some of which you can take care of yourself.  For the rest, there are our disposal repair experts.  Here are a few possible issues and solutions:

  • Absolutely nothing happens when you turn it on. That might be the result of a jam that has tripped a house circuit breaker, blown a fuse, or triggered a built-in protection circuit.  Check your home’s “fuse box,” make sure the unit is turned off, then press the reset button on the disposal. You may have to wait for the motor to cool off before pushing the reset has any effect.
  • You hear a humming sound.  That is the motor trying to turn, but the blades are jammed. Unplug the disposal unit then try and clear the jam from above-using pliers (never put your hands into a garbage disposer, even the one that is “unplugged” — you may have pulled the wrong plug).  You can also try using the Allen wrench that came with the unit, rocking the motor back and forth until hopefully the jam is resolved.
  • Clogs usually require disconnecting the drain plumbing to clear.  Avoid using any type of drain cleaner.
  • Leaks may sometimes be fixed by simply tightening a connection or two, garbage disposal repairs involving replacing seals, or replacement installation.
  • Vibration or shaking usually means that the garbage disposal unit must be restarted.

TIP:  Here is a list of things that should not be put down a garbage disposal: bones, coffee grounds, fat, fruit pits, grease, seeds, and stringy foods such as potato skins and celery. These items tend to cause clogs, extra wear, and/or jams.

Garbage Disposal Installation

Depending on the exact problem and the condition of your disposal, a new garbage disposal installation may be the best solution.  Especially, it applies to those who have a “builder grade” model. These inexpensive models are underpowered and prone to corrosion.  We are going to install the one that lasts!  Quality brands include features such as stainless steel blades that stay sharp and suffer fewer clogs. We will also help you choose the proper size (HP, or horsepower) based on the size of your family or the scale of your restaurant.  Sufficient power means a longer life with fewer repairs.

What People Say About Hometown Plumbing

I would love to appreciate the Hometown Restoration team for their prompt service and quick arrival in a dire moment. My husband and I had a minute leak caused by our dishwasher when we got back from vacation. Gladly, they helped us mobilize the Insurance Company. The team did a great job of getting our house cleaned out and put back together in a timely manner. All their Employees were positive and understanding of our situation and seemed to really care about our needs above all else.

Goodness, gracious! I thought I had written a review in the past, but right now, I feel differently. This is the most effective and spot-on company that my husband and I have ever dealt with. We had an intense leak on our slab, and it caused extensive water damage by nightfall with their dryers, humidifiers, and blowers. They responded to all my probing and helped me pick up your phone calls, our texts, and this is simply amazing. If you have any type of water damage, save yourself the stress, and use this company.

Hometown Restoration was a lifesaver. We had a huge water leak above our kitchen that flooded our downstairs. Hometown quickly came out and helped us get a plan for how to deal with the damages. They packed our belongings into a pod, removed the destroyed cabinets, and dried everything out. They helped coordinate with our plumber and insurance adjuster to make sure everything was handled. I strongly recommend Hometown Restoration if you have water damage in your home.
