The kitchen garbage disposal is possibly one of the most convenient kitchen appliances. Messy food scraps can be gone instantly, but if you don’t care for your disposal properly, you’ll need to replace it sooner rather than later. We want to help you keep your garbage disposal working perfectly so you can keep your sink and pipes clean. If you notice that your garbage disposal is making weird noises, doesn't deal with garbage like it used to, or just doesn’t work, it is time to call the professionals. Appliance & Air Care Experts can help with all your garbage disposal repair needs.
A garbage disposal unit can help you to keep your kitchen sparkling clean, and it also helps remove organic matter that can stink and attract pests. You will eventually need to repair or replace garbage disposal, and there can be a great number of signs that you will need to call an appliance repair expert in the Dallas area:
A garbage disposal is supposed to grind whatever is put in it so it can be washed away. If it is not grinding, and you have had the appliance for a long time, it could be that the blades have become blunt. Or, the motor might have been worn down enough that it does not have the power to grind properly. We can come to diagnose the problem for you and maybe even fix it on the spot.
A garbage disposal can make a lot of noise, especially when grinding certain waste, but it should not be overly loud, and weird noises can indicate that it is not working properly. If you are hearing weird noises from the unit, we recommend turning the appliance off until you can have someone come out to take a look.
There are often automatic shutoffs in a garbage disposal unit, but if the unit is shutting off quickly after you turn it on, there might be a problem with the sensors or switches. We can come to take a look. Because we keep the most common parts on our trucks, we can often fix the unit in the same visit.
Leaks, which are usually caused by cracked pipes, can cause a lot of damage. Cracked pipes will wear down over time, but if you have a newer unit, it can signal a more significant problem. Call us and we can figure out the cause of your leak and what is needed to fix it.
If the water is not draining, the valves in the unit might be faulty. This problem can stop you from using the unit until it is fixed, so be sure to call us for help as quickly as possible. A sink that isn’t draining through the disposal will make food prep and clean up miserable.
Time is what causes the most problems in a garbage disposal unit. If you are using the garbage disposal as intended, following the instructions in the user guide, you will lessen the need for repair. Follow our tips to maximize the life of your garbage disposal:
You can put a lot of different organics down your garbage disposal but, as with everything, moderation is key especially when it comes to certain foods. Try to space out some organics, and allow for ample flushing. Don’t put large amounts of peels, eggshells, fish skin, grease, or coffee grounds down the garbage disposal at once.
You should clean your garbage disposal regularly. It’s relatively easy to do. Along with gently scrubbing the interior (when it is turned off), you can then grind some ice cubes to better clean the blades. Finally, feed in a cut up lemon and grind to freshen the unit.
It can be hard to clean the disposal unit unless you use our pro tip: Once a month, sprinkle some baking soda into the unit and then rinse with vinegar. This will cause a reaction that will help to clean and sanitize the garbage disposal unit.
