Common Garbage Disposal Problems

A garbage disposal is only beneficial to your home if it’s working properly. 

Common causes for garbage disposal breakdowns include:

  • Jammed disposals: If you notice a humming sound or a backup of material, it is often caused by the blades malfunctioning. This may be caused by you sending materials like fruit pits, stringy vegetables, or non-food items down your drain.
  • It won’t turn on: Begin troubleshooting this issue by checking for a flipped circuit breaker. If that’s not the problem, it may be an outdated unit that needs to be replaced, or you have a loose wire that needs to be tightened.
  • Leaking: There are many opportunities for your garbage disposal to leak. A small leak is often caused by a worn-out O-ring or deteriorated seal. Reach out to our team immediately for our professional garbage disposal repair in Waxahachie for immediate solutions.

Don’t let a damaged garbage disposal make keeping your kitchen clean difficult when Reed’s Appliance Repair is here for you. Our multilingual team is here to serve everyone in our community with same-day solutions.

How to Prevent Your Garbage Disposal from Breaking

Commonly, a garbage disposal is used as a catch-all for kitchen scraps, but there are a few items you should avoid throwing down the drain to prevent potential issues with your disposal. 

Throw these items away instead of down your drains:

  • Eggshells
  • Coffee grounds
  • Bones
  • Fruit pits
  • Fats or oils
  • Cleaning chemicals

Even a heavy-duty garbage disposal isn’t prepared for hard materials like bones and fruit pits. Fats, oils, coffee grounds, and eggshells are known to induce clogs that harm your system. Cleaning chemicals can damage the pipes for a shorter lifespan and have a higher chance of leaking. Many of these materials can create clogs or damage your pipes to cause a sewage backup or leak. By monitoring what goes into your system, you can help reduce the chance of a breakdown.

Regular Garbage Disposal Maintenance

You can also prevent issues by adequately maintaining your system. This includes regular cleaning. Combine half a cup of baking soda and half a cup of vinegar; let it soak for ten minutes before turning on your disposal and rinsing it with hot water. Preventative maintenance like this is critical to avoiding blockages, backups, and other issues with this appliance.
