FAQ Garbage Disposal Repair Questions

Can I prevent mechanical failures?

Most service calls we respond to can easily be avoided with proper care and usage. It is surprising how few people actually know how to operate this appliance to keep it up and running for a long time. By reading the manufacturer’s instructions for usage and following the suggestions, you can prevent most mechanical failures.

What food can I put in my disposal?

This is a wonderful question. Many disposals break down because the wrong types of food are being fed to the disposal. We tell our customers to restrict the types of food waste they put in their machine to whatever is left on their plate at the end of a meal. Anything more like food scraps from food prep or liquids like grease and oil will clog your blades and hinder operation.

How do I prevent odors?

A garbage disposal will smell from time to time. It has a nasty job, so it isn’t surprising that every once in a while a rank odor will come from your kitchen sink. Bad smells do not necessarily mean your drain or disposal is clogged. You can eliminate and reduce the occurrence of future odors by running citrus fruits through your disposal and also by making vinegar ice cubes. Vinegar kills bacteria that cause smells and the ice cubes will sharpen your blades.

When should I replace my disposal?

A garbage disposal can last anywhere from 5-10 years depending on how well it is taken care of and the amount of usage. If you think you need to replace your disposal, give us a call and we’ll help you decide is replacement makes better economic sense than repairs.
