6 common issues with your garbage disposal

You may not realize it, but in addition to adding convenience for Northeast Ohio homeowners, a well functioning garbage disposal serves an important role in your home’s overall plumbing system.  Garbage disposals assure the full breakdown of waste to prevent the blockage of the main sewer line.  When a garbage disposal isn’t performing optimally, food particles can build up in the pipes resulting in serious clogs and costly repairs.

Homeowners in Cleveland and elsewhere in Northeast Ohio experience the following concerns that often indicate damage to their garbage disposals:

  • The disposal is running louder than normal
  • There is a foul odor coming from the sink
  • Water is not properly draining in the sink or is leaking below the disposal
  • The disposal motor is running but not properly grinding
  • The disposal starts to run but shuts off by itself
  • A utensil or other object is stuck in the disposal

If you are experiencing any of these problems with your garbage disposal, it is time to call the professionals at Verne & Ellsworth Hann.  Attempting to repair a garbage disposal by yourself can lead to serious injury with its sharp components.
