The modern garbage disposal is one of the most useful plumbing innovations to date. When your garbage disposal is in good working order and is used correctly, it can simplify your cooking and cleaning processes as well as protect your home from unwanted odors associated with those processes.
When your disposal sputters to a halt, so can your meal and chore plans. At Rakeman Plumbing, we offer garbage disposal repair and replacement in the Las Vegas, NV, area.
Common Garbage Disposal Issues
Because your garbage disposal mostly sits out of sight, you may have trouble identifying when this appliance needs to be serviced. You may need repairs or garbage disposal replacement if you notice that your garbage disposal:
- Does not turn on at all or loses power unexpectedly, which could result from a circuit breaker issue or a blockage
- Frequently jams regardless of the size or resistance of the food waste in it, which could indicate a motor problem
- Frequently needs to be reset before it can be used, which can occur as the appliance or its wiring ages out
- Has a persistent odor despite your best cleaning attempts
- Leaks during use, which typically happens when the seal degrades
- Makes grinding or screeching noises when powered on, which indicates a misalignment in the disposal’s components
- Takes much longer than usual to break down food waste, which could point to dulled blades
If you’ve noticed a change in your disposal that isn’t on this list, let our technician know so we can account for that issue as well.
