What Are Some Common Signs of a Damaged Garbage Disposal?

Your garbage disposal works hard to keep your kitchen clean of unsightly food debris. Many families enjoy having a garbage disposal because it makes life so convenient. However, there are warning signs you should be on the lookout for indicating a damaged or jammed garbage disposal in need of repair or replacement, including all of the following:

  • Unusual humming noises
  • Unpleasant food odors
  • Won’t switch on or off
  • Leaking water from the unit

How Are Garbage Disposal Repair Services Performed?

Your garbage disposal has many working parts, making pinpointing the cause of your issue complex. First, we’ll inspect your garbage disposal until we determine the cause of your problem. This may require us to remove it altogether to examine the various components. You could have broken blades or a damaged motor that just needs to be replaced. You could also have an electrical wiring issue. Once we’ve repaired or replaced the faulty part, we’ll test the unit to see if we corrected the problem. You can count on us to reinstall everything for a fully functional, efficient garbage disposal again in no time!

Why Leave Garbage Disposal Installation to the Pros?

Sometimes, garbage disposals are so badly damaged they need to be replaced entirely. Parker & Parker Plumbing can install a new garbage disposal in your Central Valley home when this happens. When installing a new garbage disposal, we have to fit it to your sink and seal it to prevent leaks. We must also ensure it’s installed clear of your kitchen cabinetry and dishwasher. It’s best to leave your garbage disposal in the hands of qualified professionals, as the disposal must also be wired properly for your safety. When you call us for installation, we’ll get your new garbage disposal set up in no time.

Don’t Ever Put These Items Down Your Garbage Disposal

If you’re careful about what you put down your garbage disposal, you can avoid unnecessary repairs and maintenance caused by clogs and damages to your disposal’s blades and motor. To preserve your disposal as long as possible, make sure you don’t ever put any of the following down your drain:

  • Eggshells
  • Nuts or their shells
  • Coffee grounds
  • Fruit pits and seeds
  • Grease
  • Oils and fats
  • Household chemicals, bleach, lye, or acids
  • Animal bones
  • Pasta
