Flipping the Switch!
Few things are as frustrating as flipping the trusty garbage disposal switch and hearing that tell-tale faint hum of the system not working. It might be an issue with a circuit breaker or fuse box—maybe it’s just not getting power. Always check the red reset button located beneath the sink first. That might be all it takes. This can happen if it’s accidentally pushed or if the motor has overheated. The need for a reset can also happen with a jam or if the disposal is left running for too long. A clicking sound while the disposal resets is normal. However, if it immediately pops out again, you likely have a jam. Time to call the Garbage Disposal Repair Specialists!
Disposals are great at grinding up food items, but what if Junior stuck something down there you don’t know about or those leftovers became a little too petrified for even a state of the art disposal to handle? And who doesn’t have at least one spoon or other utensil that’s tried to take on the disposal? Jams are quick fixes that professionals can handle in less than a minute with a simple Allen wrench. Why not just do this yourself? Sometimes the jams require a little more tough love, and this requires delving into the actual disposal with the right tools. A number of hand and finger amputations happen every year by DIY disposal fixes. You don’t want to become one of those statistics.
On the other hand, the disposal may have simply worn out and needs to be replaced and Complete Appliance Repair and Service can install a new one for you. Other problems include leaky disposals from a faulty drain pipe or gasket, or a noisy disposal that might be caused by metal in the system (but not enough to clog it fully). A disposal is one of the smallest appliances in the kitchen, but also the most dangerous.
