If your garburator has stopped working or isn’t working like it should, you might need replacement parts or professional garburator repair services. Garburator Man has been helping West Vancouver residents keep their disposals in great shape for years, and can help you diagnose and resolve your issues with ease and convenience. When it is working, a garbage disposal is a great tool to have. It can help further break down food waste that goes into your kitchen sink and give you a way to get rid of stinky foods without throwing them in the trash. Of course, like any appliance, these machines can act up from time to time, and may eventually need repairs.
There are many things that could go wrong that will result in your garburator needing repair. The most common issue that people have is jamming, which is when a piece of food or other item is stuck in the blades, or lodged in the drain hole blocking the blades from doing their job. As soon as you notice the mechanism is jammed, you need to turn the machine off and unplug it or turn off power to the device. If you feel safe doing so, you can use tongs or pliers to attempt to remove whatever is lodged in the drain, but never stick your hand into the disposal. Alternatively, or if you can’t remove the jammed item on your own, you can call professionals to remove the entire system and clear out whatever blockage is in there.
Usually, if a garbage disposal is acting up, it will make some kind of noise or act in a way that is noticeable. Pay attention, because it’s easy to overlook. Listen for unusual noises, check for foul odours or unusual smells, and look at how well the machine is actually working. If it is running slowly or not grinding food like it should, the blades could be broken or worn to a point where they need replaced.
If your garburator isn’t working at all, check to make sure the power is getting to the unit. If it has power, there is probably a bigger issue going on. You can use the reset switch (usually located on the bottom of the disposal under the sink) to reset the power, or unplug the machine to allow it to reset. If this still does not resolve the issue, call us to diagnose your issue and provide an assessment of necessary repairs or replacing your disposal system.
If your food waste disposer has died completely, we can install a new one to give you back the convenience that you’re used to.
Signs that you might need a new system rather than disposal repairs or replacement parts include:
