Austin Garbage Disposal Repair

Here are some signs that you may have to replace or repair your unit.

  • Too many resets: If you find yourself having to constantly push the reset button, the wiring could be faulty or the disposal could just be getting old. Normal operation shouldn’t require the constant pressing of the reset button.
  • Foul odors: It’s common to smell odors right after you run your disposal. After all, its job is to grind up all that leftover food you had for dinner. But if the odor is persistent, despite cleaning it often, your unit may need an inspection and repair.
  • Long breakdown time: If your disposal is taking a long time to grind up food, get it looked at. For optimal operation, be sure to run the unit at least once a day for about 25 seconds so food particles don’t build up. Never operate the disposal without turning on the water first.
  • Grinding noises: Yes, your disposal will make a sound when it’s in use, but you should not hear grinding. This may indicate a piece of silverware is stuck in the unit. If that is the case, shut off the unit, remove the offending obstacle, and restart the machine. If the grinding persists, your disposal may need to be repaired or replaced.
