Your #1 Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement Service

If your garbage disposal suddenly quits working, your first thought may be to replace the appliance. However, many common problems with disposals can easily be repaired by one of our qualified, local plumbers. And, in some instances, you may even be able to solve the problem on your own without spending a lot of time or money. Here are some at-home remedies for an inoperative garbage disposal that you may want to try before you call us for help.

Reset Your Disposal

In many cases, a disposal that flips off during operation or has run without problems before may just need to be reset. To prevent the motor from overheating your machine may turn itself off to save the motor. The reset switch for most models is found on the motor itself which is located underneath the kitchen sink. Push the button or the switch and try the disposal again.

Check for Obstructions

If resetting your disposal doesn’t bring it back to life, but you hear the motor humming the reason it may not be grinding up your food could have to do with an obstruction. Turn the disposal off and find a flashlight. Look into the disposal’s mouth and see if you can visually see anything like food particles or foreign objects that may be preventing the blades from moving. If the obstruction is obvious, use a pair of pliers and wiggle the it free.
