Common Garbage Disposal Issues
A garbage disposal can run into numerous issues, some of which need repair, while others require a replacement. Contact a licensed plumbing professional if you have persistent problems with your garbage disposal for your well-being and safety. Here are some difficulties you may experience:
Overheating – If you flip the switch and your garbage disposal’s motor doesn’t make a sound, it’s likely overheated due to overloading. The initial step is to look under the unit and find the red reset button. If nothing happens after resetting, find your circuit box and check for a tripped breaker.
Sticking – If your garbage disposal is humming but isn’t working, something may be trapped, causing it to stick. Never put your hand down the channel and into the crushing chamber. Instead, avoid the risk of injury and hire a plumbing expert to assist you.
