Does your garburator sound noisy, or smell bad? This is a sign that professional repairs or replacement of your disposal may be necessary. Garburator Man is an accredited company that has helped residents in Maple Ridge keep their disposals working for years, and our repair services and expert method of diagnosis can help get your garburator working again. Garbage disposals are a wonderful thing to have in your kitchen. They provide a way to get rid of stinky food that normally would sit in the trash for days. However, as with any appliance, they will eventually malfunction and need repair.

Garburator Repair Service

There are several things that can happen, that will require your disposal needing servicing. First, the most likely cause of a broken garburator is a jammed disposal. All sorts of crud can cause the unit to jam, such as carrot peels clogging up the disposal, or other meal leftovers that are obstructing the blades from spinning. If you notice that your disposal is not spinning when you turn it on, turn off the disposal immediately. This may involve just flipping the switch or unplugging it under the sink.

If you can see the obstruction in the disposal, you can try to remove it yourself. A word of caution: never stick your bare hands into the disposal area! Try using a pair of tongs, or something similar, to remove whatever is jamming the unit. However, if you are unable to remove the object, it is best to contact a professional contractor to disconnect the unit and remove whatever is causing the problem.

Garbage disposals will let you know when something is wrong just by the sound of things. The unit may make a humming noise, but you will notice that nothing is happening. The blades may have stopped spinning, or there is slow movement of all the waste. Another sign of a broken disposal is unpleasant odours that persist even after cleaning. This could mean that the blades are worn down and cannot cut up the food scraps like it once did. This may mean that the blades need to be replaced.

If you turn on your unit, and nothing happens at all, there are some things you can try. First, try resetting the unit. This is usually done by either unplugging it for a minute or so or pushing a reset button located on the bottom of the disposal. Make sure that the device is plugged in and has power. If you have done these steps and the disposal is still not working, call us for a professional assessment to determine the exact repairs and or replacement of your unit.

Garburator Installation Service

Garburators break down, and that is a fact.

We can install a new one, and give you back the convenience you are used to having. 

Here are some signs that your garburator is “finished.”

  • Damaged beyond repair: While the physical appearance of your disposal may seem o.k., looks can be deceiving. Our experienced technicians and troubleshooting methods can determine very quickly whether the disposal needs to be completely replaced. There are many cases when troubleshooting provides few results, and replacement of the unit is necessary.
  • Leaky and overflowing: The disposal is part of your home’s plumbing system, as it is directly attached to your pipes. If you are finding pools of water under your sink, or notice it overflowing out of the top, that is a sign your device is on its last leg. Rather than deal with the costs of an emergency, a new garburator costs far less and restores your kitchen’s functionality.
  • Age: A disposal that is 5 years old, or older, it is time to replace it. While some units can be repaired at this age, it is only a matter of time before you have more problems, and the entire disposal dies. Replacement is typically the better option.

Tips for taking care of your new garbage disposal:

  • Grind waste completely: Make sure your disposal is empty and clear of any food to prevent clogs.
  • Clean your disposal with a brush: Several times a year, take a brush and clean out your disposal. This helps remove any particles that might be left over from previous use, and keeps your unit running efficiently.
  • Use cold water: Hot water should not be used in the garburator, as it softens food. Use cold water, which hardens waste and makes it easier for the blades to cut up. Also, avoid fibrous foods, like pasta which expand and clog up the disposal.
