Garbage Disposal Repair in the Baltimore, MD Area

Most garbage disposals are powered by a small electric motor. Impellers are attached to the motor, which spins them at a high velocity, turning solid food into liquid (with the help of running water from your sink).

Although it may seem like your garbage disposal can “eat” anything, even the best disposal units can get indigestion from time to time! To keep your garbage disposal in optimal working condition and to prevent needing a new garbage disposal installation, you should avoid feeding it items like:

  • Grease, fats, and oils
  • Pulpy materials like paper, wood, or pumpkin
  • Large or hard food items
  • Meat, skin, bones, and lard
  • Fibrous foods like celery and banana peels
  • Apple seeds or peach pits
  • Coconut shells and pineapple shoots

If your garbage disposal stops working correctly or starts making unusual noises, don’t panic. Try cleaning your disposal system first. If this doesn’t work, you will need to schedule repairs by a professional. Fortunately, most disposal problems are minor and can be repaired quickly.

How to Fix Minor Garbage Disposal Clogs in Your Baltimore-Area Home

Not every garbage disposal jam requires a call to the plumber! If your disposal stops working, there are a few things you can try before you pick up the phone:

  1. Reset your disposal. The bottom of your garbage disposal should have a RESET button. If the motor jams, turn the disposal off and wait a few minutes, then firmly press this button.
  2. Unjam your disposal from the bottom. Check to see if your disposal can be unjammed from the bottom. There should be a small, hexagonal hole where an Allen key can fit – turning this will allow you to turn the flywheel and attempt to dislodge the clog.
  3. Check the power. This may seem obvious, but if your garbage disposal isn’t making any noise (not even a hum) it may not be receiving power. If your disposal is plugged into an electrical receptacle under the sink, unplug it and test the outlet with another appliance to ensure it is operational. If your disposal is hardwired to an electrical box, try resetting your circuit breaker panel by flipping it off and on.

If you still can’t get your disposal to work, or if the problem is a leak instead of a clog, don’t worry – just call Len The Plumber! We’ll come out that same day to fix your garbage disposal as soon as possible.
