Garbage disposals are one of the most commonly used appliances in a kitchen. Due to its heavy use and water hardness, it is not uncommon for problems to arise. Given what the garbage disposal does, common problems will arise with the disposal, the sink, and the pipes that are used to connect them together.
The problems are often more complex than people realize. What may look like a simple fix may need the attention of a professional. Since many of us may not have the skills and experience needed to fix the garbage disposal on our own, it is good to know professionals are around to help.
Common Garbage Disposal Repair Issues
One of the most common issues with a garbage disposal is the annoying grinding noise that you hear whenever someone uses the garbage disposal. While it is expected to hear noises when the garbage disposal is in use, there will be times when the noises will be louder than usual. The loud noise can occur because there is an item stuck in the disposal or the issue can be more serious. Attempting to remove any blockage can be dangerous. Do not try to remove the object if is overly jammed.
A clog can originate from various things, including grease and dirt. Regardless of what is the cause of the clog, it is an issue that will need to be addressed.
