Garbage disposers may be one of the most misused appliances in any home. Few people realize that garbage disposers are only designed to handle light food residue that is rinsed from plates and cooking utensils before they go into the dishwasher.
What causes a garbage disposal to stop working?
Large quantities of food and debris going into garbage disposers can overwhelm them and clog the kitchen sink drain. Few things are more frustrating than a kitchen sink that won’t drain, but Western Rooter will repair or replace broken garbage disposers and get your sink back to normal in no time.
Disposals also wear out over time, and will eventually need to be replaced.
Why is my garbage disposal humming?
Garbage disposals can hum when they are overloaded, or when a foreign object that isn’t supposed to be in there is lodged inside of the disposal.
To fix this, press the reset button located on the bottom of the garbage disposer. If this doesn’t work, turn off the power switch and shine a flashlight into the drain. Look for a foreign object such as a coin, plastic bread tie or staple.
Remove the item with pliers or a grasping tool. It is dangerous to put your hand inside a disposer. Your disposer may have a hex key jam clearing tool. Look for it under the sink or taped to the disposer. Check for a slot at the bottom of the disposer where the tool can be inserted and turned back and forth to clear the jam.
