Common Garbage Disposal Problems

The most common problem is units that fail to activate. In this case, the circuit breaker could be to blame and will need to be inspected for power issues. If there is power at the circuit breaker, inspect the bottom of the garbage disposal. Most units have a tiny reset button there. If this button has popped out, there is a problem with the motor. The motor usually overheats if there is a jam.

As a result, a jammed unit is another common problem. Foods and various items can lead to this. Make sure you are keeping difficult items out of your unit.

Items that should not be discarded into the garbage disposal include:

  • Bones
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Fibrous vegetables
  • Grease
  • Non-food items

Most jams can be cleared by accessing an area underneath. When removing jams from a disposal, always use tongs or pliers to avoid injuries. If you are having trouble with a particular jam, or you think something else may be wrong with your disposal unit, contact our Murrieta garbage disposal technicians for help.

A leak is also another issue that can affect your unit. Most leaks occur at the drain, so we recommend inspecting this area first. If the drain pipe has a leak, the rubber gasket must be replaced. If the garbage disposal is new, the ring next to the sink flange must be inspected.

To Repair or Replace?

24-7 Plumbing and Drain can confidently repair most garbage disposal problems. However, if possible, we can also simply replace the affected component without replacing the entire disposal unit. For example, if your unit is leaking, the seal may need a replacement. If there is a major jam, we will replace the motor if it is burned out.
