Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Like any other type of mechanical device, a garbage disposal has many different parts working together to operate properly. If one part becomes stuck, broken, or worn down over time, it can lead to the entire device malfunctioning. Our San Diego plumbing repair experts are trained to inspect, diagnose, and repair all types of garbage disposals. If your system is beyond repair, we also happily install and replace garbage disposals if necessary.
Common Signs You Need A San Diego Garbage Disposal Repair:
- Loud Rattling Noises - If you notice your garbage disposal is noisier than usual, this could be a sign that the blades are broken, dull, or in need of repair, or there is an object lodged in the disposal that shouldn’t be there, like utensils or screws. To fix this issue, turn off your garbage disposal by unplugging it from the socket under the sink and carefully remove the object using tongs, while avoiding the blades.
- Funny Smells - Strange smells coming from your garbage disposal could be a sign it's not draining properly.
- Dirty or Excess Water - This is one of the most common signs of a broken garbage disposal. If your unit is clogged or jammed, water will begin to pool in your sink.
- Developing Rust - If you've noticed the blades of your garbage disposal have begun to rust, it's time for them to be replaced by a professional.
Garbage Disposal Maintenance to Prevent Future Problems
Although you should always trust a trained San Diego plumber from HPS Plumbing Services to fix and install garbage disposals, there are a few steps you can take to help prevent problems in the future. Simple maintenance that you can do yourself can help to keep your garbage disposal working for longer. While you are running your garbage disposal, always have water running at the same time. Additionally, you should avoid putting food, oil, or other types of particles down the disposal.
