What to Do If Your Garbage Disposal Breaks Down

When your garbage disposal stops performing optimally, it's crucial not to attempt a DIY fix. Such an endeavor often requires specialized tools and understanding, which might be beyond the grasp of most homeowners. Moreover, the appliance's sharp blades used to grind food waste present a considerable risk of injury.

It's best to contact our experienced team at Drucks Plumbing & Heating if you face such a situation. We're equipped to swiftly diagnose your garbage disposal's issues and present you with viable solutions, whether that involves a repair or replacement. Our prompt service often allows us to address your issue the same day you contact us.

Common garbage disposal problems that require professional repair service:

  • Jamming
  • Humming but not working
  • No power
  • Leaking
  • Insufficient grinding
  • Overheating

When to Replace Your Garbage Disposal

Replacing your garbage disposal becomes necessary when the unit experiences frequent breakdowns or has reached the end of its expected lifespan, typically around 10 to 15 years. Experiencing persistent problems like relentless clogs, constant need for resetting, ineffective grinding, or a persistent foul odor despite thorough cleaning are also signs that it may be more cost-effective to replace the unit rather than to continue paying for repairs.

However, minor issues like simple jams, tripped breakers, or leaks might only require a professional repair service and not a complete replacement. Always consult with the professional plumbers at Drucks to make the best decision for your situation.

How to Maintain Your Garbage Disposal

Tips for caring for your garbage disposal:

  • Run Cold Water: Always run cold water before and after using your garbage disposal to solidify any oils or fats present in the food scraps, making them easier to chop up and wash away.
  • Break Down Waste: Break down large waste items into smaller pieces before feeding them into the disposal to reduce the chances of jamming and ensure the blades last longer.
  • Regular Use: Run the disposal regularly to prevent rust, corrosion, and ensure that all parts stay in good working order.
  • Clean Regularly: Regular cleaning is crucial to extend the lifespan of your disposal unit. You can use mild dish soap and cold water for a routine cleaning. For a deeper clean, consider grinding ice cubes and table salt to scrub the inner parts of the disposal, followed by a rinse with cold water.

If you are unsure whether it is time to repair or replace your garbage disposal, call our team. We can help you determine whether your garbage disposal is worth repairing or if it is time to upgrade to a new unit.
