Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Do your garbage disposal problems need professional help? Here is a list of the most common problems that you must call One Source for help: 


Jamming is one of the most common problems with a garbage disposal. It occurs when food particles or other debris get stuck in the disposal’s blades, preventing them from rotating. 


Sometimes garbage disposals become clogged, slow the drainage, and may even cause a complete blockage. This is usually caused by harsh particles like potato peels being disposed of down the drain.


Leaks can occur in various garbage disposal parts, such as the sink flange, dishwasher connection, or drain pipe. Loose connections or damaged seals often cause leaks.

Strange Noises

If you hear sounds like grinding, humming, or rattling, you may need a professional plumber to investigate the underlying cause. Usually, these sounds suggest that something is stuck in the garbage disposal or loose parts need to be tightened. 

Motor Failure

Garbage disposals rely on the electric components of the motor to function. The entire disposal will fail if the motor fails, requiring a complete replacement. 

Why Call a Professional for Garbage Disposal Service

Garbage Disposals: FAQs

Can you live without a garbage disposal?

It is possible to live without a garbage disposal. However, when washing dishes, you must take extra care to dispose of all food particles in a separate container to prevent clogs and blockages. Many people choose to compost and use a drain catch to prevent debris from hitting the pipes. 

How long can you keep a garbage disposal?

The lifespan of a garbage disposal is about 10 years. After 10 years, they will begin clogging and breaking down more often. 

How does a garbage disposal affect the environment?

Garbage disposals divert trash from landfills, which is positive for our environment. However, it uses water and electricity to perform its work, which adds to the damage of greenhouse emissions and extra energy use. So, while compost piles are best for our environment, garbage disposals are second best.
