Affordable Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement Service

Did you know that proper maintenance and usage can substantially extend the life of your home’s garbage disposal? One of the most used kitchen appliances, the garbage disposal has been around in some form since the late 1930s when companies like General Electric and InSinkerator developed prototypes and applied for patents. Now, decades later, garbage disposals are in 50%of home across the United States. This popular appliance favored for its convenience and ease of use is also one of the reasons that we are in business.

At Avondale Speedy Plumbers, we answer phone calls from homeowners in Avondale, AZ, and neighboring communities who want to know why their disposal stopped working. They want to know why it smells so bad and is so loud. These same homeowners are often concerned about replacing their unit and how much money it will cost. Let us take a moment to address some of these concerns.

Why Did My Disposal Stop Working?

The first question we would likely ask you is, “When did the disposal stop?” Was it in the middle of being used or did it not turn on when you flipped the switch? If your disposal was working fine and stopped all of a sudden, the reason could be that you fed too much food waste into the unit and the motor turned off automatically. Pushing the reset button on the motor should solve this problem.

Another reason may be related to the type of disposal you have. Continuous feed disposals will continue to run until you turn off the switch, but batch feed disposals are programmed to run for a certain amount of time and then turn off automatically.

If your disposal won’t turn on at all, it could that there is a problem with the switch, the main power supply from the circuit breaker, or the motor could be bad.

Bad Smells and Loud Noises

Garbage disposals are loud, but if you hear a noise that sounds like something is loose it could be because the unit isn’t secure, a foreign object is stuck in the unit, or there is a problem with the motor.

If bad odors are coming from your kitchen sink, run cold water and grind up a cut-up lemon or vinegar ice cubes. This will usually take care of the problem, unless there is a clog.
