Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement

Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement Mobile AL

Your home’s garbage disposal is a relatively simple machine. A motor circulates a set of rotating blades inside of an enclosure beneath your kitchen sink, which grinds food and other waste material placed into your sink drain. Before calling Dyson Plumbing, read this information page to determine if you need a service call.

Garbage disposals have their own collection of problems and issues that a homeowner may encounter. If you notice that your kitchen sink drain is backing up, and you suspect your disposal is the culprit, NEVER put your hand into the drain or the disposal’s grinding chamber.

A possible simple fix to what appears to be a broken garbage disposal is to check to see if the unit has overheated (due to overuse/overfilling) and the internal circuit breaker has tripped. Usually, you can check under the disposal and locate a (typically red) reset button. If nothing changes after attempting the reset, check the circuit breaker for your disposal in your circuit box.

If your disposal is humming but is not grinding the material in the drain, it could be jammed. Again, DO NOT put your hand into the disposal chamber. You may very well loosen what has caused the unit to jam, and in the process, expose yourself to injury when the jam is dislodged, and the blades begin to rotate again.

Leaking garbage disposals usually aren’t caused by the unit itself, as they are self-contained, but the pipes connected to the disposal can develop leaks and will need attention from a garbage disposal repair in Mobile technician.

Seeing as how the garbage disposal is installed on the busiest sink in the home (the kitchen), and the amount of use that it gets, eventually, even the best disposal units will wear out. Replacing a garbage disposal is a job best left to the experienced, licensed garbage disposal repair in Mobile experts at Dyson Plumbing.
