Simple Ways To Troubleshoot Your Garbage Disposal

There are only a couple of things that can go wrong with your garbage disposal. If you flip the switch for the garbage disposal and you don't hear any sound, then the problem exists with the electrical. Here are a few quick tips before calling your plumber. We know this sounds obvious, but make sure there is power. Is your disposal plugged in? Is your breaker switched on? If that checks out, then press the red reset button at the bottom of your disposal. The red button is what operates the built-in circuit breaker. When the red button is slightly popped out, the circuits tripped. Push the button in; that gets your disposal back on track.

Your Garbage Disposal Repair, Service, and Installation Company

Before you call for your new garbage disposal installation service, we have another money-saving tip to get that garbage disposal back on track. If your disposal is buzzing but not grinding, in most cases, there's something lodged in your impeller or inner flywheel. Without knowing, silverware, a coin, a bottle cap, a bone, or even a nail will find its way into our disposal, and before we can shut it down, it gets lodged. Turn your motor off. Running the disposal with it jammed can cause your motor to burn up. DON'T STICK YOUR HAND DOWN YOUR DISPOSAL. First, try a wooden spoon or the handle of a plunger. Put the handle down the drain and try to dislodge what's stuck by using the handle as a lever to move the disposal. The flywheel, once dislodged, will move freely.

How To Free Up Something Lodged In Your Disposal

All garbage disposals come with an allen wrench/hex wrench when you purchase them. The purpose of the wrench is to dislodge anything that might become lodged in the disposal. If you insert the wrench into the bottom of the flywheel and turn it clockwise, this should dislodge anything in the disposal. Feel free to use some brut strength when moving your hex wrench back and forth. Once the item gets dislodged, you can remove it with a shop vacuum, magnet, or kitchen tongs, especially if the item is metal. 

Don't Wait To Replace Your Garbage Disposal

Most people wait until an appliance breaks down before they replace them. Regarding your garbage disposal, it's one of the least expensive appliances to replace compared to a refrigerator, dishwasher, or water heater. Also, you can splurge and get one with all the bells and whistles for a bit more. When you need a garbage disposal installation and repair service, Big B's Plumbing has you covered.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
