Common Garbage Disposal Issues

Garbage disposals can only handle light food scraps, and many of the problems we at Pride Services see involve the wrong food waste in the disposal.

Some of the food waste that should not go into a garbage disposal include:

  • Eggshells, seafood shells, meat bones, and other hard remains
  • Butter, cooking oils, or grease
  • Beans, rice, pasta, or other foods with a high starch content
  • Foods rich in fiber, such as potato peels, bananas, carrots, or celery

Do not wash cleaners or solvents down the garbage disposal, as they can damage the blades. Similarly, glass and plastic will scratch the inside of your disposal and the pipes below your sink. You should not rinse paint should down the sink through your disposal either.

It is essential to run the water as the garbage disposal operates and run the water until the blades finish pulverizing the debris. After a few uses, you will easily recognize the sound of the blades finishing.

Does My Rockville Centre Garbage Disposal Need Repair?

Homeowners can handle some minor issues, such as leaks or clogs, without professional assistance. If your garbage disposal is 10 to 15 years old or shows other evidence of being worn out, consider replacing the unit.

Signs you need a new garbage disposal include:

  • Abnormal noises
  • Shutting off by itself
  • Needing to reset the disposal too often
  • Foul odors

Choosing The Right Garbage Disposal

When the time comes to replace your garbage disposal Rockville Centre, NY, Pride Services is ready to help you choose the right one for your unique needs.

Garbage disposals have two kinds of motors, induction or permanent magnet. Permanent magnet motors are light, like the motor in a blender, and run faster when grinding small loads. Higher horsepower induction motors grind heavier loads and are ideal for large families or households that cook a lot.
