Garbage Disposal Installations & Repairs

Kansas City, MO Kitchen Plumbing

homeowners speaking together

A well-functioning garbage disposal is an essential kitchen appliance that makes meal cleanup quick and easy. The disposal works by shredding food waste into small pieces that can safely pass through plumbing.

Without it, you’d constantly be scraping food waste into the trash, leading to unpleasant odors and potential pest problems. Ensure your kitchen runs smoothly with professional garbage disposal repair and installation services from Anthony Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric.

What Does A Functioning Garbage Disposal Sound Like?

When your garbage disposal is working properly, it should be able to process most waste without any issues. It’s completely normal for your garbage disposal to be buzzing and making a whirring noise. This indicates that the blades are spinning and ready to slice up food waste.

If your disposal is only buzzing or humming when processing waste, this might indicate a jam or another underlying problem.

Common Garbage Disposal Issues

If you suspect your garbage disposal isn’t working properly, you should call a plumber for help. Attempting to fix the disposal on your own could cause even more issues and serious injuries. Only a professional plumber should address any issues with your disposal.

The most common issues involving garbage disposals include:

  • The disposal being jammed and not grinding food

  • Unusual noises such as clanking or grinding

  • Slow draining or water pooling in the sink

  • Despite persistent cleaning, you’ve frequently got a smelly garbage disposal

  • Leaks under the sink and sink drain

  • Disposal won’t turn on or frequently resets

  • The disposal violently shakes your countertops when switched on

If you’re experiencing one or more of these issues, then it’s time to contact Anthony Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric for your garbage disposal repairs.
