Problems with Your Garbage Disposal?

A garbage disposal that is not working is a great inconvenience. Some of the problems you can experience with your garbage disposal:

  • Humming noise when on
  • Hums as if it’s working but doesn’t turn on
  • Garbage disposal leak
  • Won’t turn on at all

If you experience any of these problems, there are some disposal troubleshooting that you can do before calling a plumber. But, if your troubleshooting doesn’t work, you can get fast service for your Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo plumbing appliance repair company – Service Professor. Our plumbers have the necessary skills and tools to quickly fix your disposer and make life more convenient.

How to Fix Your Garbage Disposal

There are some issues that you can quickly address yourself without needing to call a plumber. This is especially the case if the garbage disposal is humming but not working properly.

Steps to Fix the Disposer:

1. Locate the reset button at the bottom of the garbage disposal and press it.

2. If this doesn’t work, then switch off the power to the disposer and check to see if anything is blocking the drain. You may need to use a flashlight to see better. If there is a foreign object blocking the drain, then use a pliers or other tool to remove it. DO NOT stick your hand inside the disposer.

3. If there is nothing blocking the drain, the block may be at the bottom of the disposer. If this is the case, then find the garbage disposal hex wrench that may have come with your machine. This tool can be used to unjam the disposal at the bottom of the disposer.

4. If you are still unable to get the disposer to work, then contact Service Professor and have one of our plumbers take a look at it for you.
