Common Garbage Disposal Problems We Fix

Garbage disposals are a combination of both electrical and plumbing. As such, it’s not surprising when challenges can happen that require the disposal to be repaired. Some common challenges we encounter include:


  • Drain is Clogged / Disposal Drains Slowly

Your drain could be slow because there’s something blocking the main pipe or things are getting stuck around the opening of the pipes. Every time you throw away huge amounts of debris and food in your garbage disposal, you put your sink and kitchen drain at risk of being clogged. You will hardly find a more frustrating situation than a kitchen sink that cannot drain. When your blades are dull or there’s a break in the system, the food and liquid will back up. 

If you notice water and food running back up the sink, it could be that the blades of your sieve are dull or there is a clog deeper in the pipes. In that case, you better call a professional plumber to deal with the problem.

  • Unit is Leaking Under the Sink

If you have a garbage disposal, you should check the seal around it to make sure it’s not leaking. Leaks can often be fixed and prevented, but sometimes they go unnoticed for months or years, which leads to serious issues. 

If you see the unit leaking under the kitchen sink, you better call a local plumbers to deal with it, like us


  • Strange noises 

if you’ve been hearing a strange sound coming from your kitchen, it’s probably not the disposal doing its job. A grating metal noise could indicate that something is stuck in the blades of the disposal and needs to be removed before it damages the unit. If you hear any humming sounds from your disposal, it’s time to call a plumber.


  • Jammed

A jammed garbage disposal can make a mess. This often happens when too much waste is dumped down the sink and doesn’t go through the blades properly. The excess waste will back up, sometimes causing too much water to overflow from the sink.

You can avoid getting stuck in the kitchen sink by regularly running water and rock salt down it and avoiding excessive food waste.


  • Garbage Disposal doesn’t work

When you turn on your garbage disposal and it doesn’t make a sound, the silence might indicate a couple of different issues: the plug for the disposal could be loose or the reset button may have popped out. You might need a new switch or your circuit breaker to the motor might have overloaded.


  • The different smell in the kitchen

Sometimes, when garbage is sitting in there for a while and not being used, it starts to smell really bad. That’s because particles that collect at the disposal tend to emit smells. Don’t worry though! There’s no problem with your disposal. It just needs a good cleaning. Keep in mind that this technique only provides temporary relief for smells. 

If you have persistent odor issues, it might be better if you called professional plumbers to take apart the disposal and clean it more thoroughly. This is a good bet if your drain is slow or clogged.


  • Grinding noises

When you hear a loud grinding noise, one of two things can be happening. Either something has come in contact with the metallic blades or the blades have chipped and forged against each other. 

We recommend that you be mindful of these potential scenarios because they could have severe consequences for your well-being. If your grinding chamber is replaced recently, and a part in it gets damaged, you may be able to use the warranty to fix the issue.

Can I repair garbage disposal myself?

If you try to handle the repair works by yourself, you can follow several easy steps:

  1. Find a button on the bottom of your disposer and press it. If it does not help, look inside the drain using a flashlight;
  2. You may find some objects that clog the drain;
  3. Remove all foreign objects and do not forget to switch the power off;
  4. Find the hex key jam and turn it back and forth.

We do not recommend fixing or repairing your garbage disposer by yourself. It can lead to injuries and consequences that are even more dangerous. The best bet is to hire professional technicians who will handle the repair and installation.

      I broke a water hose bib on the exterior of my home and needed a plumber right away, as I wasn’t sure which of the 4 water valves, in front of my house, was the water main. The plumber, Ezra arrived within 15-20 minutes of my call to 5 … More Star Plumbing. The plumber, Ezra was prompt and courteous. He explained the repairs to me prior to beginning and I received a written quote in advance of performing the repairs. I would highly recommend Ezra, in particular. & 5 Star Plumbing

      I can’t begin to highly recommend 5 Star plumbing enough! We were almost taken advantage of by another plumbing company when we decided to get a second opinion from 5 Star. Amir came out, fixed the issue and gave us a full inspection for … More a very reasonable price. He was kind, informative and very thorough. We are grateful to 5 Star plumbing and Amir for saving us thousands (yes you read that right) of dollars and for doing a great job.

      Second time using 5-star plumbing, and we are very satisfied with the work. Not only did they respond to our inquiries quickly, but they also advised us on a few helpful suggestions for our plumbing. They recently fixed the leakage issue … More in one of our toilets and helped us reinstall the water heater to meet the code. My family will definitely use their service again in the future when needed.

      My insurance policy required a smart shutoff valve to be installed. I contacted several companies who were able to quote me a price with little to no difficulty, but these guys were less $ And they demonstrated that they knew what I was … More asking for and needed to satisfy my insurance requirements beyond a shadow of doubt.

      Very early in the morning, we heard a dripping come from a wall between the master bedroom and the master shower. It sounds like a clock. There is definitely no water coming out of one of the showerheads. I turned off the master water switch, … More and the dripping stops. We called later that day and they were able to schedule appointment for the next day. Turn the water back on and we heard no dripping. He did cut a hole in the drywall so we could inspect the pipes going to the shower and did not find any water damage. She also checked the floors below the shower, essentially the ceiling of the downstairs living room, and detected no water there as well. We are thankful that he was able to come and give us a great service on this inspection to make sure nothing bad was going on.
