Your kitchen sink disposer has a powerful motor that grinds up bits of food into tiny particles. Ideally, it whisks these particles down the drain and out the sewer pipe. A backup is not only messy, but it can turn into a health hazard for you and your family. Give us your dirtiest job with confidence.
Be sure to schedule a service with us if:
- Strange odors are coming from your garbage disposal
- Your disposal is backed up with water
- The motor in your disposal is malfunctioning
Customers’ First Choice for Garbage Disposal Repair
When your disposal breaks down, an obstruction is often the culprit. If you make a habit of putting lots of grease and peels down the drain, it could block the pipe over time.
Never use strong chemical drain cleaners to try to unclog your pipes. It can damage them and splash back into your eyes. Instead, let our local plumbing company work our way down the drain to get to the root of the problem and resolve it the right way.
If you need drain cleaning, we carry every tool needed to provide you with solutions. We even have snake-mounted cameras that look deep into the lines to spot a problem farther down.
Garbage disposal not working? Here are a few things you can do to resolve the problem on your own:
- Make sure the disposal is off. Then insert the handle of a wooden spoon into the disposal to see if the propelling blades are not stuck and can move freely. Carefully remove the foreign object that may be causing the blockage.
- It can also help to run the machine and put ice cubes or a bone (beef or pork) into the machine. Flush it well with water before and after.
- Try pressing the reset button at the bottom of the unit and making sure the circuit breaker has not been tripped. It sounds simple, but many people forget to do it.
Don’t be concerned about loud noises – this is a tough machine! If it is still stuck, call our Cincinnati plumbers. If your garbage disposal hums when you turn it on but does not move, it will shut itself off automatically.
Our garbage disposal repair specialists will check all parts carefully and make the right diagnosis. Most problems involve flywheels, seals, and hoses. We carry all the equipment needed to do the correct fix.
If yours is leaking, it is most likely a faulty seal. We can tighten and secure them in some cases, but leaks that penetrate the motor housing can be dangerous and may require garbage disposal replacement. Whatever the case may be, you can count on us to give you sound advice and honest pricing.
Knowing When Installation Is Needed
You do not always need a new machine when yours suddenly stops working. Depending on the nature of the problem, garbage disposals can often be fixed. However, we are well-equipped to replace yours if it is old or beyond repair. Our team of highly trained plumbers can help you choose the best model for your budget and install it quickly and correctly!
Taking Care of Your Disposal
You can avoid garbage disposal repair by following the manufacturer’s suggestions.
Avoid putting these things down the hopper:
- Fibrous materials
- Metal utensils
- Paper products
Grease should be washed down with cold water so it can break up easily. Always be sure to use plenty of water before, during, and after you use the machine to flush debris down the pipes thoroughly.
