Garbage Disposal Repair and Installation


Garbage disposals are great little technological inventions to have in the home. Except, when they stop working, they can be a huge hassle – and a huge mess. There are a number of reasons your garbage disposal could be malfunctioning, including:

  • Having a jammed grinder
  • Something getting stuck in the grinding plates
  • Misuse
  • A failed electrical connection
  • A tripped reset button
  • Excess food remnants getting stuck or clogged

No matter what your garbage disposal repair needs may be, count of Lake Cook Plumbing, your local Buffalo Grove, and Suburban Chicago plumbing experts to help you through it.

Garbage Disposal Solutions

If your garbage disposal is acting up and you think it needs fixing, it’s best if you don’t try to do so yourself. You could further damage the disposal, or even put yourself in harm’s way if something were to go wrong. Our trained technicians know the correct way to handle a faulty garbage disposal and will do so in a safe manner.

In many cases, the issue can be resolved simply. By removing the cause of the clog or jam, the disposal will quickly be back to normal. However, if it’s reached the end of its useful life – which we will determine when we perform a thorough inspection – or has other electrical problems, it would be best to just replace the entire unit.

How to Avoid Garbage Disposal Repair In The Future

So you aren’t constantly dealing with these clogs, it’s important to understand that not all objects can be thrown into the disposal. It’s so easy when cleaning up after dinner, to just toss all remaining food into it. But there are some things that should never be put into your garbage disposal.

Those items include:

  • Fat or grease
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Stringy vegetables, like celery
  • Potato skins
  • Whole fruits or vegetables
  • Non-food items, like silverware, bones, and dirt
