Let Us Handle the Garbage Disposal Repair, San Diego

If you notice that your garbage disposal is no longer running properly, do not attempt to fix the problem yourself! Doing so can be very dangerous because of the powerful blades.

Instead, rely on our licensed San Diego garbage disposal repair professionals at Rooter Solutions for premier plumbing services in San Diego County. Garbage disposal repair issues are often caused by placing large pieces of food and other items that should not be run in the disposal, such as:

  • Potato peelings
  • Bread
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Grease
  • Oil
  • Fat
  • Egg shells
  • Bones
  • Fibrous vegetables (celery, pumpkin, squash, etc.)
  • Nuts
  • Oatmeal
  • Onion peels
  • Fruit pits

These things can cause your disposal to become clogged, develop problems, and not work correctly. 

Ways Your Garbage Disposal Can Break 

  • Clogs/ jams 
  • Leaking seals 
  • Electrical shortage/ burnt-out 

Signs Your Garbage Disposal May Need Repair

Garbage disposals can exhibit some common problems requiring repairs, including:

  • Excessive noise or humming
  • Water leaks underneath the sink
  • Stuck grinding plate
  • Clogging
  • Corrosion
  • Bad smell/ odors
  • Water collecting in the sink long after use

Garbage Disposal Replacement

If your garbage disposal has trouble processing even small pieces of food, consider replacing it altogether. A replacement could end up costing you less in the long run compared to ongoing disposal repairs.

Some of the features to look for when having a new garbage disposal installed include:

  • The cutting teeth inside the disposal are close together.
  • The unit has a decent warranty period to cover parts and labor.
  • The disposal has a high-speed (high RPM) motor.
  • The interior of the unit is made from stainless steel, which resists corrosion and bacteria.
  • The disposal has a safety cover to protect against accidents when it is in operation.
  • The unit has a high horsepower rating of three-quarters or one hp.
  • The disposal has a quick-mount neck.
