Solving Common Garbage Disposal Problems 

In most homes with garbage disposals in Platte City and the Northland, the unit is used daily. This constant use can result in gradual wear and tear on the unit and corrosion with time. Eventually, the garbage disposal will have a problem and need to be repaired or replaced. 

Our plumbers frequently handle garbage disposal problems, such as: 

  • A unit that won’t turn on
  • Loud, strange noises 
  • Leaks 
  • Unpleasant odors 
  • Slow draining 
  • Clogs 

The specific problem, age of the disposal, and cost of repair will help determine whether the unit should be repaired or replaced. Your plumber will inspect the garbage disposal to locate the problem and assess the overall condition of the unit. When repairs are possible, the unit can be restored to normal operation quickly and efficiently. However, a disposal with a dead motor, badly corroded, or not powerful enough to meet your needs should be replaced. 

Commonly Asked Questions

How can I maintain my garbage disposal to avoid frequent repairs?

To maintain your garbage disposal and avoid frequent repairs, run cold water when grinding food waste, avoid disposing of hard or fibrous materials, and clean it regularly by grinding ice cubes and citrus peels to remove buildup and freshen the drain. Additionally, avoid overloading the disposal and use it regularly to prevent rust and corrosion. Regular maintenance can extend the life of your unit and ensure it operates efficiently.

Is it worth repairing a garbage disposal or should I just replace it?

Whether to repair or replace a garbage disposal depends on several factors, including the age of the unit, the nature and frequency of the problems, and the cost of repairs compared to replacement. If the unit is relatively new and the problem is minor, repairs might be the most cost-effective solution. However, if the disposal is old, experiences frequent issues, or has a dead motor or significant corrosion, replacement might be the more practical choice.

Garbage Disposal Installation & Replacement 

Whether you are replacing an existing disposal or installing a garbage disposal for the first time, you will need to choose the right unit for your home. A variety of options are available for motor size, materials, and other features. 

Features to consider when buying a new garbage disposal include: 

  • Horsepower – The power of the motor on garbage disposals ranges from one third to one horsepower. The right size depends on the amount of food scraps that you need to grind. A large family will require a more powerful motor for reliable performance. 
  • Materials – The quality of the materials will affect performance and lifespan. Stainless steel blades and grinding chambers offer the best durability, last longer, and won’t rust. 
  • Additional features – Some garbage disposals have additional features that may be appealing to you. These include corrosion protection shields, better insulation for quieter performance, sound baffles, and anti-splash baffles. 
  • Warranty coverage – When comparing units, consider the warranty terms to ensure that you are covered should a problem arise. 

Installing a garbage disposal requires working with water and electricity in close proximity. This can be hazardous in less experienced hands. A licensed, experienced plumber has the knowledge and tools to make sure your new disposal is installed safely and correctly.
