Typical Reasons for Garbage Disposal Repair

Most disposals stop working for one of the following reasons:

  • Food particles are obstructing the movement of the blades.
  • Grease, fat, or cooking oils solidified and became lodged between the blades or somewhere in the pipes leading away from the disposal.
  • Poor installation or corroded wiring is preventing the appliance to work correctly.
  • The disposal is merely old and needs to be replaced.
  • Sometimes the problem is as simple as the motor turned itself off to prevent burnout. In a situation like this, we recommend that the home owner push the reset button on the motor to get it working again.

Most garbage disposal repairs can be easily avoided if you properly maintain and use your disposal according to manufacturer directions. Usage instructions usually advise against stuffing the disposal full with food and avoiding grinding up materials like potato skins, onion peels, coffee grounds, and other food waste that is not typically what would remain on a person’s plate after he or she has eaten a meal.
