No Power: This is not an issue that is due to misuse or neglect. What we often find is that there is a simple reason the electricity is not working. In some cases, the breaker is tripped, or in older homes, a fuse is blown. Or the issue can be as simple as the unit is unplugged. This is common when large items are stored under the sink that can snag the disposal cord and unplug it. Customers discover that a large jug of cleaner can be the mystery culprit of their unplugged garbage disposal that is not working.
Jammed Grinder: Very fibrous foods, bones, coffee grounds, eggshells, and foreign objects can jam the grinder blade on a garbage disposal. NEVER put your hands or any other implement into the disposal to try and clear the jam. A hole in the unit’s bottom allows you to use a socket wrench to turn the grinder to dislodge the blockage manually. If this does not work, then it is time to call (720) 650-2455 for professional garbage disposal repair in Arvada, Co.
Excessive Noise: Bones and foreign objects can make a lot of noise when bouncing around in a garbage disposal. But the sounds can also be the result of loose mounting screws or broken or lugs or blades.
Water Leak: A loose gasket or flange usually is to blame when you notice water leaking from your garbage disposal. However, in rare cases, the housing for the disposal could be cracked, which is the reason for a leak.
