The convenience and ease of getting rid of food waste in our homes cannot be denied.

In the “old days”, you would simply throw leftover food away in the trash, where it would sit stinking for days. 

However, garburators have enhanced all our lives, with the wondrous job they perform.

But what do you do when that modern marvel turns into a royal pain when it stops working? You need a trusted professional to fix your disposal, and Garburator Man gets the job done for all of Port Coquitlam.

Garburator Repair Service

Most people are going to know when their garburator needs servicing. However, if you have never dealt with a failing disposal, there are some things that will immediately let you know things are not “normal.” First, you turn on the disposal, and there is no familiar whirring noise, just silence. Many times, a simple reset of the appliance may do the job, and that is done by pushing a button on the bottom of the disposal. If you do not have a reset button, unplug it for a short time, and then plug it in again. If you still have no action, you need to call the professionals at Garburator Man, to diagnose the unit.

Maybe your unit is “working”, in that it turns on, but you notice that things are slow going. Meaning, the food matter is not going down as fast in the disposal. If this is happening with a lot of frequency, the blades could be worn or broken. Another sign is a stench that simply will not go away, coming from your disposal area. That is all the crud that is not breaking down because your disposal is not operating correctly. While there are some troubleshooting techniques that can lead to repairing the unit, when situations arise such as these, it’s time for a replacement.

Finally, obstructions are typically the source for garburator breakdowns. Forks, knives, and other kitchen utensils can get caught, and stop the blades from rotating. If you do not hear or observe the blades spinning, turn off your unit immediately. If you can see the object causing the problem, use some kitchen tongs to pull out the obstruction. A word of caution: Never reach your hand into the disposal area! If your efforts fail to get the object out, you are going to need a repair service company to remove the unit and get the item out of there.

Garburator Installation Service

Many times, your garburator is simply not working, but you do not know if the time has come for a new one?

There are some telltale signs that will let you know that it is time for a replacement.

  • Damaged beyond repair: We provide excellent troubleshooting methods to determine the cause of your problem. However, sometimes the damage inside is just more than what the disposal is worth. If a replacement unit is what is needed, we are going to tell you upfront that is what needs to be done.
  • Leaky and overflowing: If your sink is overflowing with food waste and water, this is another sign that your unit needs to be replaced. Pools of water under the sink all the time mean there is a major leak. Remember, your garburator is a part of your plumbing system. Replacement is much better than paying for continued costly water damage.
  • Age: Just like other appliances in your home, your disposal has a life expectancy of its own. At 5 years and beyond, if your garburator is having issues, those issues are likely to continue. This despite that repairs may be able to be done. The cost of repairs, and the hassle of repeated breakdowns make replacement the better option.

Tips for taking care of your new garbage disposal:

  • Use cold water: Cold water is what is best when running your disposal. This sort of hardens all the food together and makes it easier for the unit to chop everything up. Hot water, on the other hand, makes everything separate, and it will not break down as well, or at all. Cold water is the way to go.
  • Grind up everything: When using the unit, do not leave anything behind. After putting food down the disposal, run it long enough to get rid of all the waste down there. If you have foods like celery, do not put that down the disposal. It will not grind up all the way and can cause a major clog, or failure.
  • Cleaning: Keeping your disposal in top shape means periodic cleaning. Grab a brush and scrub around inside the disposal. Remember to have the power off when you do this! This helps loosen anything that may have gotten stuck in there, that can cause odours, or keep it from running smooth.
