How Garbage Disposals Work

The garbage disposal is an integral aspect of the modern American kitchen, and it’s an appliance that seems indispensable once you’ve grown accustomed to it. The typical garbage disposal is installed beneath a kitchen sink so that food scraps collect in its grinding chamber. When you turn a garbage disposal on, an impeller plate spins rapidly pulverizing the scraps that have been collected. Garbage disposals are only designed to grind organic matter, and even then, there are some food items best avoided, such as grease, fibrous scraps, and pits and bones. The most common issue is a jam, which are usually easy to fix but which can lead to motor damage if ignored. Clogs are common as well and tend to be caused by hard-to-grind foods, such as potato peels, or an accumulation of grease.

Signs You Need Garbage Disposal Repair

If your garbage disposal won’t turn on, then you’re obviously in need of our garbage disposal repair services, but there can be signs even while a unit is operating that it requires professional service. Garbage disposals are noisy by nature, but if you are experiencing abnormal sounds, stop using the system immediately and call in the pros. It’s also important not to ignore a garbage disposal that frequently cuts off during use or requires regular resets as both can indicate serious problems with the motor or wiring. A unit that clogs easily needs to be professionally cleaned and serviced. You should also have your garbage disposal professionally cleaned if you experience persistent odors as opposed to using harsh chemical cleaners that can damage your unit. Leaks no matter how small are a serious issue as well. Stop using a leaky garbage disposal right away and call Horn 1-610-363-4200 to come out and have a look at it.
