When garbage disposals are working, they are amazing. They get rid of food waste and other things you might throw away instead.

However, things can turn into a real nightmare when it is not working right, or not working at all. 

You might think you can fix it yourself, but why bother when a professional can do it faster, and with the confidence that it is done right?

That is where Garburator Man enters the picture. Surrey residents call on us when their garburator breaks because our troubleshooting and repair services get the job done.

Garburator Repair Service

So how do you know when you need a disposal repair service? The first sign is if you flip the switch and nothing happens. Nothing is spinning, and you do not even hear a hum of the motor. There are a few things you can try to get it running again. Look for a button on the bottom of the disposal. This is the reset button, and all you need to do is push it one time. Make sure the power is switched off when you do this though.

Some units do not have this button, so unplug it for a minute and then plug it in and try turning it on. If you have tried these things, and still nothing is happening, call Garburator Man to tell you exactly what it will take to fix, or replace the disposal.

Obstructions are a common cause for disposals to stop working properly. Solid objects, like utensils, or other foreign objects can get wedged in between the blades and stop the spinning action. If you can see the object, you can try getting it out yourself. However, do not stick your bare hands into the garbage disposal. Turn off the power, and use a kitchen tool, like tongs, to remove what is jamming up the unit. If you cannot remove it yourself, then that is another sign you need a knowledgeable repair service to possibly remove the disposal to get whatever is in it out of there.

A disposal may need servicing whenever you see a slow drainage of all the items being put down the sink. Food backups may occur, which is typically a result of the blades not spinning, or they are worn down. This could just involve replacing the blades on your unit, however, the cost of doing so can often be more than the cost of a replacement unit. The smell of rotted food that lingers constantly, and especially after cleaning, means that the food waste is simply not being cut up enough. When that happens, it is a sign that you need to replace your disposal.

Garburator Installation Service

It is not a matter of “if” but “when” your disposal is going to bite the dust.

That is just the nature of things, and Garburator Man is very familiar with this fact of life. 

We can fix, or replace one quickly, and bring back the normalcy in your life. When your unit is “dead”, you will know by the following signs:

  • Damaged beyond repair: Part of our quality service is determining if the entire unit is beyond the cost of fixing. It does not take long for us to narrow down what the problem is, and if the disposal needs replacing, we will let you know about it.
  • Leaky and overflowing: As previously mentioned, when food is not “staying down” the disposal, but coming out of the top, this is when you know that your disposal may be done. Also, if you are finding water all underneath your kitchen sink, and the leak looks like it’s around the garburator, that is a clear indicator that you may need to have a new one installed.
  • Age: These appliances do not last forever. A garbage disposal usually has about a 5-year life expectancy. While there are homes that have them running longer than this, they do not operate as efficiently as when they were brand new. Repair is generally not an option, because when a disposal is this old, you will only continue to have more issues as time goes on.

Tips for taking care of your new garbage disposal:

  • Grind waste completely: While operating your new disposal, take care that no food is leftover in the unit. Leaving food matter behind creates clogs, and leads to problems.
  • Clean your disposal with a brush: Periodic maintenance goes a long way to keeping your disposal running in top shape. Using a brush cleans out all the junk that can linger behind.
  • Use cold water: Contrary to popular belief, hot water should not be used when operating your disposal. Use cold water, as it hardens things up, and therefore the blades can chop things up better. Do not put food down the disposal that can expand, like pasta.
