5 Signs Your Garbage Disposal May Need to be Fixed or Replaced
1. It won’t turn on.
The most obvious reason you need to fix or replace your garbage disposal is that it simply won’t turn on. Before calling a plumber, however, you can check to see if the connected circuit needs to be reset. If your garbage disposal consistently shuts off, and you need to reset the circuit frequently, then you may have a problem.
2. It takes too long to work.
A garbage disposal’s job is to grind up organic food waste, and a well-functioning disposal should be able to do it in only a few seconds. If your garbage disposal takes longer than that, then the blades may need to be sharpened or replaced.
3. There’s always a bad smell.
Breaking down organic food waste can sometimes create a bad smell, but the smell should go away when rinsing it down the drain. If the bad smell lingers around the sink even after rinsing, then there may be a clog in the pipes connected to the garbage disposal.
4. It makes a weird noise.
Every once in a while, a piece of silverware may fall into your garbage disposal and create a loud grinding sound. If you look into your garbage disposal and don’t see anything blocking the blades, but you still hear a strange grinding sound, then it may be time to call a plumber to fix the issue.
5. Water leaks out when you use it.
Since your garbage disposal is connected to your pipes, then it’s pretty common for water to leak into the disposal. Signs of this include puddles forming under your sink, pool on the floor near your cabinet, or drip from your garbage disposal.
