Signs of a Broken Garbage Disposal
- It won't turn on. If your disposal doesn't turn on, it could be a sign of an electrical issue. Or, if you're lucky, it could just need to be reset via the reset button (typically located below the sink).
- It makes a nasty noise. If your disposal sounds like it's trying to grind up a piece of metal, then it probably is. Shut off the unit immediately and call a professional – sticking your hand into a garbage disposal is very dangerous. You could simply have a utensil stuck in the unit, or else there is a loose part rattling around.
- You smell burning. Again, shut the unit off immediately. A burning smell is a sign of faulty electrical and should be dealt with immediately.
- You smell rotten foodstuffs. Bad odors coming from your disposal means that you should be practicing proper cleaning procedures, because you likely have a clogged disposal. Starchy foods (corn husks, potato peels, etc.) and coffee grounds should never be flushed down the sink because they have a tendency to gunk up your garbage disposal.
If you notice any of the above signs, call a professional immediately. Our plumbers in Ellicott City offer garbage disposal repair and installation at a great price!
