Garbage Disposal Tips for Upland Residents
- To prevent the garbage disposal's blades from rusting, try running it with cold water every other day.
- Every two weeks, clean your disposal by combining a cup of baking soda with a half cup of vinegar to kill bacteria and remove odors. You may also use ice cubes and rock salt as abrasives.
- Only soft meals should be disposed of in your disposal; avoid using it for fibrous or hard foods. Blade damage from bones and tangled fibers within the blades can result in clogs.
A functioning garbage disposal is essential for any modern kitchen. We offer both repair services for existing units and installation services for new ones.
Garbage Disposal Does Not Turn On
Try to reset the garbage disposal (the reset button is located at the bottom of the disposal), and look for tripped breakers on your electrical service panel. When in doubt, check the GFI outlet and reset it. If there are any loose connections, you can also inspect the wiring. If there's no motor when the garbage disposal runs, changing the switch could solve the problem.
Garbage Disposal Hums But Does Not Grind
This typically occurs when the disposal's flywheel becomes jammed. Seek out any foreign objects, like a staple, plastic, coin, or twist tie. Using pliers or a gripping instrument, remove the object. There can be a hex key jam clearing tool in your disposal. Check for it taped to the disposal or under the sink. Look for a place where the tool can be inserted and rotated back and forth to release the jam at the bottom of the disposer.
Garbage Disposal Is Leaking
Any part of your trash disposal, including the drainpipe, dishwashing hose, sink flange, and bottom, may leak. Examine broken gaskets, loose hoses and bolts, degraded putty, and fractured seals to fix these leaks.
Garbage Disposal Is Not Draining Properly
Many homes find that their trash disposal is clogged, but there are solutions for dealing with a sink full of waste and water. The disposal must be dismantled, cleaned, and then reinstalled, just like any other obstruction. If the blockage continues, there may be an issue further along the drain pipe.
