Expert Garbage Disposal Repair and Installation in Wheeling

We are able to find the most appropriate garbage disposal for your kitchen’s needs and budget, ensuring professional installation. We can also help with garbage disposal repair through prompt diagnosis and repair service.

Common Garbage Disposal Problems

A working garbage disposal saves time and effort within the kitchen. Unfortunately, it’s not always clear what should and shouldn’t go in them, which results in clogs or damage. Here are a few problems we commonly handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t start.
  • Disposal makes noise but won’t run correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • An unpleasant odor has formed.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.

You should run cold water into the disposal while it’s on since cold water solidifies any oil poured in, making it easier for the blades to break waste down. Garbage disposals must also be used regularly to avoid the formation of rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal is easy to fix if you can find the root cause. Any old or damaged parts should be replaced. Disposals may start to leak due to:

  • Deterioration of the seals.
  • Loose pipes.
  • Cracked flanges or gaskets.
  • Damage to the garbage disposal itself.
  • Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, allowing for self-cleaning. This connection can leak if it’s not securely fastened.

Most leaks can be fixed except when in the body or interior lining of the disposal. If this is the problem, you will need to get a new garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer an entire afternoon to discover and complete this and other simple repairs, so keep that in mind when considering calling a pro. Having an Expert plumber like one from Comfort Masters Service Experts diagnose and repair your problem offers time to notice other components about to fail. You can resolve both issues right then and there.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • To remove the risk of your garbage disposal smelling, food scraps must be ground up right away with cool water. Thirty seconds should be more than enough time. Avoid pouring coffee grounds, eggshells, potato peels and banana peels into your disposal, because they frequently cause drainage issues and unpleasant smells. While bleach may seem like a great idea for cleaning your garbage disposal, it hardens grease as well as other food residue in your pipes, creating clogs.

    Our plumbing Experts suggest using these cleaning solutions each week to keep your disposal smelling fresh:

    • Hot water and baking soda
    • Hot water and dish soap
    • Hot water and vinegar

    You can also buy garbage disposal pods or grind up citrus peels to help remove odors. If your garbage disposal still smells, you may be dealing with a leak (especially if the smell resembles a sewer). Contact us at 847-250-6729 for Expert plumbing service.
