Expert Garbage Disposal Repair and Installation in Rochester

We can find the most appropriate garbage disposal for your kitchen’s needs and budget, ensuring professional installation. We can also assist with garbage disposal repair through quick diagnosis and repair service.

Common Garbage Disposal Problems

A working garbage disposal saves time and effort in the kitchen. Unfortunately, it’s not at all times clear what should and shouldn’t go in them, which results in clogs or damage. Here are a few problems we commonly handle:

  • Garbage disposal won’t run.
  • Disposal makes noise but won’t work correctly.
  • Disposal is leaking.
  • An unpleasant odor has formed.
  • Water won’t drain or is draining gradually through the disposal.

You should always run cool water into the disposal while it’s on since cold water solidifies any oil poured in, making it easier for the blades to break waste down. Garbage disposals should also be used regularly to avoid the formation of rust.

Fixing a Leaky Garbage Disposal

A leaky garbage disposal is an easy fix if you can find the root cause. Any old or damaged parts should be replaced. Disposals may start to leak due to:

  • Deterioration of the seals.
  • Loose pipes.
  • Cracked flanges or gaskets.
  • Damage to the garbage disposal itself.
  • Some disposals are hooked up to the dishwasher, allowing for self-cleaning. This connection can leak if it’s not securely fastened.

Most leaks can be fixed except when in the body or interior lining of the disposal. If this is your problem, you will need to get a new garbage disposal.

It can take a DIYer an entire afternoon to find and complete this and other simple repairs, so keep that in mind when thinking about calling a pro. Having an Expert technician like one from Strogen's Service Experts diagnose and repair your problem offers time to notice other components about to fail. You can resolve both issues right then and there.
