GARBAGE DISPOSAL PROBLEMS
Perhaps one of the common issues any homeowner will encounter with garbage disposal is water leakage. The perpetrator could be the loose pipe connections, most especially when the disposal is newly installed and the connections aren’t sealed as they should be. However garbage disposal will be prone to more leaking over time due to rust which causes the pipe connections to loosen. In any case, if the leakage starts from where the sink is, the drain gasket or the unit’s mounting screws should be replaced.
DOESN’T GRIND EFFECTIVELY
It can be a real disaster when you throw your trash in the garbage disposal, expecting it’ll do its job properly but it turns out that your garbage disposal is grinding poorly. First off, make sure you’re running enough water in every operation. Also, it is worth mentioning that there are certain things that shouldn’t be put into the garbage disposal. If you’re confident that you go by these two rules, try to listen to your garbage disposal when in use. If it’s running out loud and yet the grinding results are quite futile, then it could be the blades that are already broken.
SHUTS DOWN UNEXPECTEDLY
It’s nice to simply do your trash into the garbage disposal until it shuts down completely on you. There are several reasons concerning unexpected shutdowns, it may be clogged, long usage or overheat. Garbage disposals are designed to shut down automatically when one of the mentioned reasons is at play. The easiest way to resolve this is to just reset the garbage disposal by gently pressing the red button until it’s retracted in. If the button won’t stay in, then the garbage disposal may require professional service. Get in touch with us and we will arrive shortly after your call. Once we check up on your garbage disposal, we’ll provide you a detailed explanation as to why your garbage disposal is behaving that way.
