Keeping Your Garbage Disposal Working

Repairing or installing garbage disposals may be a point of home improvement for your home There are a few simple steps you can take to troubleshoot the repairs that may be needed for your system. The more you can do yourself the more money you will save on expensive professional repair calls. There may be times when your garbage disposal stops working during a critical period, or on a Sunday where you can’t find help.

Did you know that using a garbage disposal is a way to make your home eco-friendly?

Garbage disposals are not only convenient but they are also eco-friendly. Instead of being sent to a landfill, the solid foods will be churned up. There are always new and improved versions being sold. The newest has something called an “auto-reversing grind feature” and another has a continuous feed disposer that is designed to eliminate jams. There are now disposal systems that are designed to work with septic systems that do a double grinding that makes the emulsification of the foods even safer for this type of system.

Features to take into consideration when buying new garbage disposals is the type of feed it offers, the size of the motor, the type of chamber it has for grinding, and the noise level of the unit in operation.

What can be done about noisy garbage disposals?

There could either be too much vibration or something stuck in it. Caps and silverware a lot of times will get stuck down there.

Before tampering with the unit, make sure it is disconnected from the power supply. You can then safely physically reach into the system and feel around the impellers for the object that is causing the problem. Feel your way around the flywheel and the chamber wall where the grinding takes place.
