Garbage Disposal Repair

Homeowners rely on their garbage disposal or Insinkerator quite a bit, to the point where if it is failing it can cause huge problems for a kitchen, and make it smell like garbage and waste. We know this is a huge hassle, and so we do our best to be available to take care of your garbage disposal repair on the same day you call Trusted Plumbing!

We rely on our garbage disposals so much that we hardly pay attention to them... until something goes wrong. You can get away with ignoring a finicky disposal for a little while, but eventually, whether it’s emitting foul odors, or you’re tired of remembering not to use that side of the sink, you’ll be ready to get your garbage disposal working again.

Garbage Disposals Plumbing

These appliances are easy to use when they are working properly, but typically risky to repair on your own if you aren't an expert like we are. If you aren't careful you may injure yourself, or cause more damage to the garbage disposal while you try to repair it with your wrench or other tools you may have.
While we don't recommend doing so, it may be possible to fix the issue on your own, here is our basic guide for this.

A garbage disposal that isn’t working properly is usually caused by one of three common things.

 

  • It’s overheated. If your disposal isn’t responding at all when you flip the switch, it’s probably because it overheated and switched off to prevent blowing an electrical circuit. You don’t need a plumber to solve this problem. Simply locate and press the reset button on the disposal carriage under the sink.
  • It’s jammed with a foreign object or too much food. Foods that are hard or tough or too much food at once can cause gears to get clogged. You can try to unclog it yourself if you take extra precautions but you should definitely call a plumber if you have any doubt about how to do this.
  • It’s leaking. Disposal leaks are more challenging to fix and we suggest calling a plumber if this is the issue rather than hoping you can find the right valve to turn.
