Signs Your Garbage Disposal Needs Repair

Oftentimes, a simple repair can return your home’s garbage disposal to a new-like condition again. Some of the most common signs you need garbage disposal repair include:


A Lack of Power

Obviously, if your garbage disposal isn’t powering up, it’s not doing its job and needs to be inspected. Before you call a plumber, though, check to see if the circuit breaker and power cable are switched on and connected properly. If that’s not the case, there could be a loose wire within the unit or the motor may have blown. Contact Johnson to get to the bottom of the issue and make the appropriate repair.

Strange Noises

Any out-of-the-ordinary noises are signs of concern. If your garbage disposal is humming but not turning on, the flywheel could be worn out or stuck. Rattling, grinding, or other unusual noises could indicate a problem with the unit’s blades or motor, and should be inspected by a professional. 


Garbage disposal leaks are annoying and can cause damage to your kitchen if they’re not repaired in a timely manner. Most leaks are caused by worn-out hoses and seals, which will need to be replaced. If your garbage disposal unit is leaking, contact Johnson today.

The Unit Isn’t Cutting

Your garbage disposal’s blades need to be sharp to properly grind up food. Blades can become dull over time, preventing them from cutting up food efficiently. The plumbers at Johnson can sharpen or replace your disposal’s grinding unit to restore it to good working order.


If your disposal is slow to drain or won’t drain at all, you likely have a clog. Clogs can develop for several reasons, including a bad motor, debris in the pipes, malfunctioning components, or too much food stuck inside the disposal. Contact a plumber if you notice a clog to prevent a big plumbing problem from developing.

Foul Odors

Does your garbage disposal have a funky smell coming from it? If so, there could be food particles stuck inside the unit, causing bacteria to grow and produce unpleasant odors. If you’re unable to remove the food particles, contact our professional team to inspect the disposal and make the appropriate repair.

How Long Do Garbage Disposals Last?

Although the plumbers at Johnson will always try to make a repair if possible to save you money, there are times when it makes more sense to replace your current garbage disposal, especially if you have an aging unit and the cost of repair is close to the cost of replacing the unit.

On average, garbage disposals last about 8 to 15 years based on several factors, including how often it was used, whether maintenance and timely repairs were performed, and the type of disposal you own.

Whenever issues occur with your home’s garbage disposal, get in contact with Johnson for garbage disposal services throughout the Greenwood, IN area.
