Signs That It Might Be Time to Get Your Garbage Disposal Looked at
No matter whether your garbage disposal system is brand new or many years old, problems can and will happen eventually. Identifying these problems quickly is your best bet for catching them and getting them repaired before much more serious problems start to appear.
Some of the main signs that something is wrong with your garbage disposal, include:
- The garbage disposal is draining a lot slower than what it normally does.
- A noticeably bad smell is coming from the system that you can’t get rid of.
- There is a slight humming sound coming from the garbage disposal.
- The garbage disposal system is leaking.
- You’re finding that the reset button must be pressed frequently.
- The system is clogging a lot more than normal.
While most garbage disposals can handle whatever you throw at them for a short amount of time, if you aren’t careful with the way that you use your garbage disposal, then it will very quickly break down. There are also problems that can occur that are outside of your control; while the reasons for the breakage can seem mysterious there’s always an underlying cause.
If you’re having problems with your garbage disposal, then any one of the following problems could be to blame:
- There is a blockage in the system that is stopping anything else going down.
- A seal has broken on the garbage disposal.
- There is a crack in the casing.
- The motor has stopped working.
- The disposal unit is old.
- The motor blades have become very dull.
- Food has gotten trapped in the disposal unit.
