The garbage disposal is one of the most used machines in the home.
Due to heavy use, and water hardness, it’s common for issues to arise. Since most of us don’t have the time or the necessary skills needed to fix a
garbage disposal on our own, it’s good to know there are professionals that can help!
Common Garbage Disposal Repair Issues
- Stuck Object
This can range from a piece of silverware to a fibrous piece of food. First, do not try to remove the object if it is sufficiently jammed! Second, unplug the disposal. Contact an Abacus plumber to remove the foreign item.
These can originate from a variety of things, including congealed grease, fibrous tissue, dirt, etc. Regardless of the reason, it’s a problem that needs to be fixed. Please contact an Abacus plumber to clean out the clog. Our plumbers will use products that are safe for your drains. Additionally, it may be necessary to clean out the P trap, and if the clog is severe, the line may need to be snaked.
When your disposal is overloaded it has a feature that automatically shuts it off. This happens to prevent the machine from getting too hot. You can try hitting the reset button; however, if this doesn’t work, then you will need to contact an Abacus plumber. The garbage disposal may require some electrical work.
