Although you may not want to hear it, garbage disposals do not last indefinitely. The garbage disposal is a small kitchen appliance that is used daily. How can you tell if your unit needs to be repaired or replaced? Continue reading to learn how to recognize the warning signs of a garbage disposal repair.
Your Garbage Disposal Constantly Restarts
Do you have to restart your garbage disposal all the time? If this happens once or twice over a few months, it’s probably not a big deal. You most likely overloaded the disposal and overworked it. If this happens every time you try to use your garbage disposal, it’s time to look for a garbage disposal repair or replacement.
The last thing you need is a leaking garbage disposal. Leaks occur if it is not installed correctly, but they are repairable. You must reinstall the removal, which should resolve the issue. If you’ve had your garbage disposal for a long time and it’s suddenly started to leak, that’s a different story. The plumber may be able to repair the seal, but if the disposal is cracked, you will need to replace or repair it.
Bad Odors And Clogs
These two issues are frequently linked. When the garbage disposal clogs often, it usually means that food particles have become lodged inside the drains or in the drain pipe. It stinks because you can’t get these bits of food to move through the drain pipes. If your garbage disposal is frequently clogged, this could indicate that your food needs to be ground up properly. Garbage disposals in this department begin to fail over time, suggesting that you should consider garbage disposal repair or replacement as soon as possible.
