Signs Your Garbage Disposal is Failing

If you suspect your home garbage disposal is failing, you’re probably right. The signs and symptoms of a failing waste removal system are hard to ignore, and you may notice a sudden reduction in what your system can handle. Look out for these warning signals:

  • You have to reset it frequently
  • When you turn it on nothing happens
  • You can’t seem to get rid of the odors
  • The disposal is making unusual noises
  • The disposal is not removing waste effectively
  • Water is backed up or leaking from your garbage disposal
  • The disposal is humming but not removing waste

With professional repair and maintenance, you can keep your garbage disposal running smoothly and keep your kitchen clean and functional for years to come.

What’s Wrong with Your Garbage Disposal?

Electrical problems: Often when your garbage disposal is exhibiting no activity at all, an electrical issue is to blame. If you use the reset button on your system and it provides a permanent fix, there is likely no major issue. But if you find yourself having to reset regularly, this is cause for concern.

Impeller plate defects: If your garbage disposal is humming but not doing its job, it may be an issue with the impeller plate. While you may be able to adjust this yourself, it’s best to get a professional if you’re not sure where the plate is located. The good news is that in this case, your garbage disposal’s motor is still working and the system may just need a quick repair or adjustment.

Broken blades: Another common issue is malfunctioning blades. If your blades are stuck or broken, the waste won’t be broken down properly. This usually leads to clogged kitchen sinks or waste not being fully processed by your disposal system. A plumber will clear any clogs and manually adjust the blade so that it can move freely again. 

How to Prevent Garbage Disposal Problems

 It’s important to note that certain things shouldn’t go in your garbage disposal. This includes fatty oils, coffee grounds, and larger scraps of meat. Anything that is particularly difficult to break down can cause a backup in your system, so it’s best to only dispose of safe food scraps like egg shells, fruits and vegetables, and fish bones. All of these are easy to chop up and eliminate as long as your garbage disposal is working correctly. 

Garbage Disposal Replacement in Philadelphia

If your garbage disposal is beyond repair, we can provide garbage disposal replacement in Philadelphia. Systems come with different features and in different sizes, so it’s important to assess your needs and how robust of a model you need. Motor sizes may be anywhere from ⅓ HP to 1 HP with larger motors typically being quieter than smaller motors. The size that is right for you will depend on how often you use it, whether or not you have a septic system, and what you are putting in it. We can help you choose the best garbage disposal for your needs. 

The Garbage Disposal Replacement Process

First, we will remove your old garbage disposal and unpack your new one. Next, we will connect the new system to your current sink or a new fixture if desired. This includes replacing the plumbing trap and connecting your new disposal to your electrical system. 

Once the installation process is complete, we will run a few tests to make sure everything works correctly. Lastly, we will clean up the area where we worked so it’s like we were never there. If you’re not sure how to install a garbage disposal, there’s no need to risk your safety or waste time trying to swap out your disposal.
