What’s Wrong With Your Garbage Disposal?
There are different problems that can cause your unit to break down.
The most common problem is the motor dying out. As is the case with any device that has a motor, the motor will eventually wear out over time and with constant use. When this happens, contact us for help. There are different motors and sizes that are required for specific garbage disposals, and we will help you figure out the right equipment for your unit.
Another major problem involves the breakdown of the disposal’s blades and metal teeth. These parts can also become stuck due to debris inside the disposal. When this happens, you will hear a simple whirring noise but find that the disposal does not move at all. Your initial reaction might be to turn it off and try to prod around the disposal to find out what is causing the problem. Instead of risking further problems, contact your technician for a sure repair. We can even sharpen the blades to get them working like new again.
