What can prevent your garbage disposal from working?

While most homeowners think that you can throw just about anything down the drain for the garbage disposal, the truth is, this is not the case. There are various situations that can cause your garbage disposal to jam or to break altogether. These include:

  • Bones - While some bones may seem small and easy to break down, they can actually damage the garbage disposal blades and jam inside the motor, preventing it from working at all.
  • Fibrous Foods - Fibrous fruits and vegetables can wreak havoc on your garbage disposal. Because they are difficult to break down, they may overwork the garbage disposal, eventually resulting in a breakdown.
  • Fats or Grease - These items should NEVER go down your drains. Fats and grease can harden in your pipes, eventually causing serious clogs and damage to your plumbing.
  • Mass Quantities - Even though we think our garbage disposals can break down anything, the truth is, anything in excess can cause it to stop functioning.
  • Glass, PLastic, Or Metal - These items dont often go down the drain unless it’s an accident. With that being said, they can cause significant damage to your garbage disposal.

While being careful of what goes down your drains can easily prevent these issues, once they occur, you will need our professional services. At Neighborhood Plumbing & Sewer, we have the skills needed to fix your garbage disposal. Additionally, should we have to, we can also replace your garbage disposal altogether.

How can you tell if you have an issue?

When it comes to garbage disposals, there are generally two situations that you will be facing in your home. By knowing these situations, you will be able to get timely garbage disposal services in no time.

Turns On But Doesn’t Work - Does your garbage disposal sound like its on, but it still isn’t spinning? This can be caused by a jam that is preventing your blades from turning. Similarly, there may be excess items in the disposal, which prevent it from functioning properly.

Does Not Turn On At All - Do you flip the switch for your garbage disposal but get no response? This can be caused by an electrical short or a blown motor. If the garbage disposal is older, or in poor working condition, this will become a common issue in your home.

Before sticking your hand down the drain to find out what the problem is, give our professionals a call. With our expert Michigan garbage disposal repair services you will never have to worry about long periods of downtime. We work efficiently and professionally to get the job done.

What are the benefits of a full system replacement?

Although some homeowners may not want to replace their system completely, there are various benefits, which can make it a great investment. For one, newer systems work more efficiently, which can help you save money on energy costs. Also, some models can handle larger capacities that can make them perfect for homeowners who use the kitchen often.

Additionally, you will have peace of mind knowing that your garbage disposal is under warranty and sturdier than older units. At Neighborhood Plumbing & Sewer we can help you find a garbage disposal that works with your needs and budget. Once we find the perfect system, we will use our factory training to install it efficiently.
