What are common garbage disposal problems?
The most common problems affecting garbage disposals include jams, leaks, clogs, unusual sounds, and loss of power. Your Seaway plumber will assess the issue to determine if a repair or replacement is more cost effective.
A jammed disposal is often solved by breaking up the offending items inside the drain. To reduce loud sounds coming from the unit, we will tighten the bolts and components of the disposal and remove any objects blocking the unit and keeping it from working properly.
When is repair or replacement necessary?
We will do our best to repair your garbage disposal if replacement is not yet necessary. However, an older unit that is constantly needing repair may need to be replaced to help you complete your kitchen chores more efficiently.
What problems will require repair and what problems require replacement? Leaks in the disposal often cannot be repaired. In this case, we will recommend a replacement. Burned out motors will also need to be replaced. The blades in the disposal will also become dull if inappropriate or difficult to shred items enter the drain, such as utensils or fibrous vegetables.
What are easy maintenance tips?
Have you recently installed a new garbage disposal? Take a look at some easy ways you can keep your disposal running in top condition for many years to come.
Be mindful of what enters your kitchen drain on a regular basis. Avoid allowing coffee grounds, pasta, egg shells, meat bones, banana peels, oil, and grease from entering the drain. Keep utensils stored away from the sink so they do not accidentally fall in. When run through your disposal, these items can jam the motor and dull the blades.
Tips to keep garbage disposal running better:
Clean your disposal regularly with a vinegar mixture to clear any lingering odors.
Keep the drains smelling clean by running lemon slices through the disposal.
