Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Garbage disposals have become essential to today’s modern kitchens. They allow homeowners to dispose of food scraps and debris down the sink drain without having to put these biodegradable scraps into the trash, keeping them out of landfills and reducing our overall waste—which is a great thing. 

However, even following the best practices for disposals can still lead to a clog in the drain line. There are things you should avoid putting down the garbage disposal to avoid the need for emergency services of a plumber, such as: 

  • Coffee grounds
  • Eggshells
  • Grease
  • Rice
  • Pasta

Sending these down the disposal can lead to plumbing problems and a service call from your friendly A-1 plumber. These types of items can cause clogs in the disposal due to buildup. There are ways to clean your garbage disposal, such as running ice cubes with salt through it. It is important not to use chemicals or liquid drain cleaners with your garbage disposal.

Even high-quality units can develop issues over the years. If you flip the switch to turn on the disposal and nothing happens, it may be an electrical issue.

If it turns on but seems to be grinding slowly, or you hear a hum and no movement at all, then it may be jammed. To help avoid this, run the faucet for 20-30 seconds with cold water as you grind up food particles.
