Garbage Disposal Repair Service

Our garbage disposal technicians can repair, fix, and replace any garbage disposal unit causing you problems. Also, if you need a new garbage disposal unit installed in a new construction home or remodel, our technician can do that as well.

However, for those Houston customers who want to try to repair their own garbage disposal, our master plumber is putting together a how-to guide called “Garbage Disposal Repair” to help walk you through the process. Look for that to be published on our blog in 2017.

In the meantime, here are garbage disposal repair steps to go over the general outline for fixing a disposal.

How to troubleshoot a garbage disposal

1. Flip the garbage disposal switch On and listen for what the disposal does. Either one of two things can happen. First, that nothing happens. Or two, that the garbage disposal hums but does not spin. You’ll use this information later. Next flip the switch off again.

You always MUST make sure not to flip the switch to OFF whenever you are working on the garbage disposal.

How to unclog a garbage disposal drain?

Keep in mind the information you gathered from flipping the garbage disposal switch ON. Next:

  1. Look down the disposal hole and use pliers or another device to pull out debris. Debris in a garbage disposal can jam the mechanism from spinning. What constitutes debris? Nearly anything hard or soft. Certainly make sure there aren’t any metal utensils in the disposal unit.
  2. Once you remove the debris, turn the disposal switch back on.Then either three things can happen. Either the disposal unit hums and spins, only hums, or nothing happens.
  3. If the unit hums and spins – it’s fixed! Congratulations, your garbage disposal repair is done.
  4. However, if the unit only hums or nothing happens, you are not finished with the repair.
  5. Now you’ll need to go under the sink and inspect the garbage disposal unit. You’ll need a couple tools. First, you’ll need an allen wrench or a jam buster wrench. Both of these tools fit into the hex receptacle at the bottom of the garbage disposal.
  6. When you inspect your garbage disposal unit under the sink, find the reset button. Usually the reset button is red and located at the bottom of the unit. Flip this button. If the button makes a clicking noise when you flip it, you’ve very likely solved the issue. Go back to the disposal switch and flip it on, then test your unit. If it now works, you’re done!
  7. However, if the unit still doesn’t work, then you’ll need to test the outlet running to the garbage disposal. Go to your main circuit breaker and flip the switch that controls the garbage disposal unit. Now test your unit again.

If the garbage disposal still doesn’t work, then finally you’ll need your tools. 8. Insert your hex allen wrench or the jam buster wrench into this hex receptacle at the bottom of the garbage disposal unit. Turn your tool several times back and forth; what this does is free up the spinning mechanism of the unit. Now the garbage disposal blade should spin and work freely.
