Garbage disposals are great little inventions… when they work. Like any other appliance that’s handy to have around the house, disposals are bound to have problems at some point throughout their life. If you have a garbage disposal in your home, and the kitchen sink is starting to get full of dirty water and food, or the disposal is leaking out of the bottom, you know you have an issue that needs repairing.
Your disposal could be malfunctioning because of:
- A Jammed Grinder
- Something Stuck In The Grinding Plates
- A Failed Electrical Connection
- A Tripped Reset Button
- Excess Food Remnants
Garbage Disposal Solutions
For most issues, including jams and clogs, we can remove the problem and return your garbage disposal to normal. If, however, your garbage disposal has reached the end of its useful life, has an electrical problem, or the motor is blown, replacing the unit may be your best option.
How to Avoid Problems In The Future
Once your garbage disposal has been repaired, it is important to take steps to avoid the problem in the future. What’s the best way to ensure you will get the most of your garbage disposal going forward? Try to avoid putting these items into it:
- Fat Or Grease
- Stringy Vegetables Such As Celery
- Potato Skins
- Whole Fruits Or Vegetables
- Any Non-Food Items
