Common Garbage Disposal Problems
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 you garbage disposal could be malfunctioning, including:
- Having a jammed grinder
- Something getting stuck in the grinding plates
- A failed electrical connection
- A tripped reset button
- Excess food remnants getting stuck or clogged
No matter what your garbage disposal troubles may be, you can count on Lake Cook Plumbing 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 Lake Zurich garbage disposal technicians know the correct way to handle the faulty equipment 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 has reached the end of its useful life—which we will determine when we perform a thorough inspection—or has other electrical problem, it would be best to just replace the entire unit.
How to Avoid Problems in The Future
When you aren’t constantly dealing with these clogs, it’s important to understand that not all objects can be thrown into the disposal. When cleaning up after dinner, it’s so easy to just toss all the remaining food into it. However, there are some things that should never be put into your garbage disposal.
Those items include:
- Fat or grease
- Stringy vegetables, like celery
- Potato skins
- Whole fruits or vegetables
- Non-food items, like silverware, bones, and dirt
