When your garburator isn’t acting as it should, you may need professional garburator repair or replacement services. The food waste disposal in your sink is relatively simple as far as appliances and machines go, but it does need occasional attention. Most garbage disposals are designed to last about five years, so if yours is approaching that milestone, you might find that you need more frequent repairs. Of course, some models will last longer without incident, while others might need repair within just a year or two. It all depends on how much you use your garburator, how well you care for it, and the quality of the brand that was installed in the first place.

Garburator Repair Service

Garburators are designed to help get rid of food waste and make it easier to pass through the pipes and into sewer systems. The device is generally powered by electricity, either through a plug or by being directly wired into the circuitry of the home. They are great for getting rid of smelly food waste and minimizing clogs in kitchen pipes, and when they stop working, most people realize the great convenience that they are missing. Contact Garburator Man for all of your repair needs, no matter what is wrong with your disposal mechanism.

Prevent unnecessary damage to your garbage disposal system by knowing what is and isn’t okay to put down the drain. For example, you should never pour grease or coffee grounds into a garburator. These can clog the system, drain trap, and other parts of the pipes and create huge plumbing issues. Other items to keep OUT of your disposal include:

  • Fibrous foods like celery, lettuce, potato peels, asparagus, and onion skins
  • Seeds, pits, and apple cores
  • Bones
  • Starches like pasta and rice
  • Eggshells
  • Non-food items and foreign objects

The last one might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many garburator repair calls originate from some foreign object getting lodged in the disposal, ie: Lego! Always make sure that you keep a screen over the disposal to keep silverware or other items from falling in, and if something is stuck, do NOT use your hand to get it out. Use tongs or pliers for safety. Better yet, call the professionals and let us repair your disposal and get it back in working order in no time at all.

Garburator Installation Service

In some instances, replacement might be a better option than repairing your garburator. We can set up an appointment to diagnose your broken disposal and offer advice as to the best way to resolve the problem. We also do new installations for people who don’t yet have a food waste disposal system in place, and we work with only the best brands on the market. If you think you might need garburator replacement or installation services, let us know.

If your garburator is more than 5 years old, it will almost always be recommended to replace the unit. Because of newer, energy-efficient models that are more cost-effective, a replacement is often the most affordable option. Plus, it will take less time compared to replacing single parts that might be hard to find or have to be special ordered. Other common reasons you might need garburator replacement include:

  • Complete failure of the system. If the motor is burned out or another major failure has occurred, there may be no fixing things.
  • Constant clogs, leaks, or odours. These are all signs of a system that is wearing down with age and could stand to be replaced. If you are experiencing frequent clogs, especially, you may want to consider a bigger garburator for your next purchase.
  • Frequent resetting or unplugging. Most garbage disposals come with a reset switch in case something goes wrong. Others may just need unplugged and restarted regularly. Either way, you are looking at a machine that is probably on its last legs.
