For starters, it is important to do a bit of diagnosis before a professional is called. If the disposal is not making any noise at all, it may not be getting power and the breaker box should be checked for a tripped breaker. If the disposal is making a hum but not turning, some disposals have a reset button. Others have a crank that can be operated on the bottom of the unit.
If none of this works, it’s time for a pro to come take a look.
A garbage disposal has a great deal going on.
- water connections
- sewer connections
- electrical connections, and
- some very sharp moving parts!
Moreover, they are constantly being stuffed full of materials to macerate. An improper installation can present problems in a hurry.
If the garbage disposal came with the house or building, it may be years old. Disposals are appliances that are often abused and rarely maintained and cared for properly. If the unit is not functioning, or if it is leaking from its primary casing (and not a water or sewer line leading into or out of the unit), then it may be time to replace it. It’s important to understand that, unlike other kitchen appliances, garbage disposals are not terribly expensive. A high-quality unit with plenty of power can usually be purchased for less than $200. But it pays to consult a professional.
A professional plumber will be able to recommend a unit with adequate power for the job at hand. More importantly, they can insure that the unit is installed correctly and will not malfunction.
When choosing a company to do garbage disposal installation, look for a local company with years of experience. A local plumbing company will have made dozens of installations and will know how to properly size and install a unit. More importantly, a local plumber will be available for repairs if you need them.
