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.

Garburator Repair Service

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.

Garburator Installation Service

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:

  • The disposal is damaged beyond repair. Although you might not be able to tell this from looking at it, once we do an assessment of the issues you are having, we will be able to help you determine whether or not you can save the device. In many cases, troubleshooting the issues that are happening may have little to no result. This means it’s probably time for a new system.
  • There is a leak in the device or it overflows frequently. As this is a part of your home’s plumbing, leaks can happen just the same. If you find that your garburator is leaking all the time, constantly overflowing, or otherwise creating water damage and leakage issues, it might be best to throw in the towel and replace the entire unit.
  • The unit is over 5 years old. While some older disposals can still be repaired, this is the point at which replacement almost always becomes the better option.

Take care of your new garbage disposal installation by keeping the following tips in mind:

  • Grind waste thoroughly. Make sure that you empty and flush the disposal every time you use it to keep it clean and prevent clogs.
  • Clean the disposal with a brush from time to time. This clears out leftover debris and buildup, reducing the risk of blockages and improving the operation of the device.
  • Use cold water to dispose of items, as it will help them harden and make them easier to grind up. Hot water will soften items, which makes the work for the blades that much harder. Soft items and fibrous foods can also get entangled in the blades, creating a jam.
