garbage disposerMany of Option One plumbing service calls involve garbage disposer problems. They may be one of the most misused appliances in any home. Few people realize that garbage disposers are only designed to handle light food residue that is rinsed from plates and cooking utensils before they go into the dishwasher.

Large quantities of food and debris going into disposers can overwhelm them and clog the kitchen sink drain. Few things are more frustrating than a kitchen sink that won’t drain. Option One will repair or replace broken disposer and get your sink back to normal. FAST.

Does your garbage disposer hum, but won’t operate properly?

If this doesn’t work, turn off the power switch un-plug the power cord and shine a flashlight into the drain. Look for a foreign object such as a coin, plastic bread, a tie or staple. Remove the item with pliers or a grasping tool. REMEMBER, It is dangerous to put your hand inside a disposer. Your disposer may have a hex key jam clearing tool. Look for it under the sink or taped to the disposer. Check for a slot at the bottom of the disposer where the tool can be inserted and turned back and forth to clear the jam.
