When a garbage disposal is used frequently it may start experiencing problems that can hinder its performance. This isn’t necessarily a sign that the garbage disposal needs to be replaced. Sometimes the issue can be remedied with a simple repair. The plumbers at FLAME Heating & Cooling offer comprehensive garbage disposal repair services.
Tips for the Brave DIYers:
If you hear a loud clanking noise when you turn on your disposal, try putting a handful of ice cubes down the drain and turn the disposal on. If the noise of performance malfunction is caused by a lodged food item such as a lemon peel, this will break it up.
If you think your motor might be stuck, grab a small allen wrench and turn the bolt at the base of your disposal and ensure that the motor is free to spin.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU PLACE YOUR HAND INTO THE DRAIN UNLESS THE DISPOSAL IS TURNED OFF AT THE SWITCH ON THE UNIT ITSELF.
