Garbage Disposal Repair
A garbage disposal is a relatively complicated piece of machinery. That means it can break down for many reasons. When it does, we at DAZ Plumbing & Locating will help. Our Waxahachie garbage disposal repair team is on hand 24/7 to address your needs. We’ll provide any necessary repairs, and answer any questions you may have about proper upkeep, so you can avoid issues like these in the future.
Signs You Need Garbage Disposal Repair Service
It may not always be immediately obvious when your garbage disposal is beginning to fail. You need to be familiar with key warning signs to better understand when it’s time to schedule service. The sooner you get in touch with us, the sooner we can get your garbage disposal back in good working order. Specifically, give us a call if you notice any of the following warning signs of a problem:
Difficulty Turning the Unit On
Garbage disposals often need to be repaired if they don’t turn on when you try to operate them. Similarly, you might also find you need to frequently reset your garbage disposal before it starts working. Both of these issues are frustrating. They also both tend to indicate an underlying problem with the unit itself.
This isn’t something you can fix on your own. Again, a garbage disposal is a complicated machine. You need to be sure the people identifying the cause of the problem (and fixing it) are professionals with the necessary qualifications. Try to fix it on your own, and you may accidentally cause more damage.
A garbage disposal that’s functioning properly will break down food into very small particles. This allows them to pass easily through your plumbing system. The unit won’t always break down food thoroughly enough if it needs to be repaired. As a result, particles build up in it. This results in an unpleasant odor constantly emanating from the garbage disposal.
Granted, it’s not uncommon for garbage disposals to smell somewhat unpleasant when they are first turned on. You can often cover up the smell by grinding citrus peels in the unit. However, if the unpleasant odor is constant and persistent, it likely means food is getting caught in the unit. This indicates it isn’t grinding up food to the degree it should be. Hire professionals to fix it.
All garbage disposals make some noise when they are in operation. That said, it’s still important to pay attention to the nature of the sounds they make. Grinding or screeching sounds that are noticeably louder or more violent than sounds the machine used to make could be signs of a unit in need of repairs.
A garbage disposal that clogs frequently may not be powerful enough for your needs. On the other hand, this issue is often a sign of a problem that can be fixed. You might not need an entirely new unit if the problem is something that can be repaired.
It’s also important to pay attention to the length of time it usually takes your garbage disposal to break down food. If it’s slower than it used to be, get in touch with a repair team. You need professionals to determine the cause of the problem. For example, in some cases, slow grinding simply means the blades have become dull and need to be replaced. That said, like all other major appliances, garbage disposals don’t last forever. A unit that’s working less efficiently and effectively than it used to could be at the end of its lifespan. Instead of scheduling frequent repairs, you’ll save a lot of money in the long run by replacing it. Our experts will let you know if that is necessary.
