Garbage Disposal by Will Fix It

What are some signs I need to replace my garbage disposal unit?

There are a few signs that you need to replace your garbage disposal, including:

  • Won’t Turn On – Your garbage disposal may turn on but won’t make any noise. Never put your hand into your garbage disposal to find the culprit. You can try to reset the machine by hitting the reset button. If that doesn’t work, check your circuit breaker.
  • Leaking – Leaking can be an indication that the rings need to be tightened on your sink flange or that your garbage disposal unit has a hole in its case.
  • Foul Odors – If you notice a lingering foul odor, you could need a new disposal. The blades get dull over time, leading to food getting trapped and decomposing in the unit.

Slow Drain – Sometimes food, liquid, and debris get stuck in your drain. Try vinegar and baking soda first to try to dislodge the clog. If that doesn’t work, we’ll come to see if there is a bigger problem.

Things to Never Put Down Your Garbage Disposal

Garbage disposals are tough systems built to handle a large amount of kitchen waster, but there are still items that should not be put down the garbage disposal, including:

  • Eggshells
  • Fat, grease, and oil
  • Bones
  • Pasta
  • Nuts
  • Rice
  • Coffee grounds
  • Seafood shells
  • Oatmeal
  • Potato peels
  • Fruit pits

Preventing Garbage Disposal Problems

It’s important to take care of your garbage disposal. The best things to do to prevent problems include:

  • Run water while the disposal is going.
  • Break up large items.
  • Place citrus fruits in the garbage disposal for a pleasant smell.
  • Grind ice to help blades sharpen.
  • Use the garbage disposal regularly.
  • Be careful not to overfill the garbage disposal.
  • Never use your hand to clear the unit. Use tongs instead.
