Common Problems with Garbage Disposals
Getting to the root of garbage disposal problems starts with identifying the underlying problem. Here are some common problems connected to garbage disposals that the Black Diamond team has dealt with and can assist you with:
A Disposal That Will Not Turn On
If your garbage disposal won’t turn on, it may be due to an electrical issue. We have a team of qualified plumbers and electricians, so we can easily get to the bottom of electrical issues involving your disposal. If you know that the power is running to your system, and it still won’t turn on, give us a call to schedule service.
A Stuck Flywheel
The flywheel can get stuck or worn out over time. If you can safely dislodge any debris that are in it, then do so. Otherwise, unscrew the flywheel and remove the debris. If this does not help, get in touch with Black Diamond Plumbing & Mechanical.
Worn Disposal Teeth
If your disposal is old, the teeth may be worn out. Replacing the grinding mechanism or sharpening the teeth may make your system more effective again.
A Leaking Garbage Disposal
The seal or hose within the garbage disposal unit can get worn out. If you are noticing leaking, this is probably the reason. Contact Black Diamond to discuss replacement.
Garbage disposals are not designed to handle all food waste. If you’re noticing a clog, it may be because you sent something down the disposal that it was not designed to handle. Do not use chemical cleaners on a garbage disposal. Avoid the DIY project and give our professionals a ring instead.
If you are experiencing one of these problems, contact the Black Diamond Pluming & Mechanical team at 866-350-4793 to schedule repair.
