Clogged garbage disposal

Garbage disposal clogs happen when food stuffs get lodged in the disposal itself. Starchy foods, like potatoes or noodles, are hard to chop and easily remain stuck in the disposal. Avoid putting these items down the disposal if possible by using a drain screen.

Loud garbage disposal

This is a tell-tale sign that something has gone down the disposal that should not be there at all. Items such as metal utensils or bottle caps should never be placed in the disposal, since they can damage the blade. Sometimes, the disposal will prevent its blades from spinning in order to protect the motor, resulting in a loud sound. Remove the object in order to fix the issue.

Inoperative garbage disposal

A disposal that won't turn on at all can be a sign of an electrical malfunction. Ensure that the disposal is plugged in, and if it still does not work then we recommend calling a professional immediately.

Leaky garbage disposal

Sometimes the seals between the disposal and the main pipe can become worn and cracked over time. This commonly results in a leak, and luckily one that our Foster City plumbers can easily fix.
