Common Garbage Disposal Damage
Although garbage disposal units can experience a range of issues, many problems that affect them are often identifiable by smell and sight. For instance, a unit that lacks a hum may have overheated. That typically occurs because there’s an overfill, leading to the disposal tripping a breaker.
Similarly, a garbage disposal unit that is humming, but isn’t working, may have a jam. These usually happen when the impellers, the unit’s blades, get stuck. In such cases, never put something in the disposal, like a fork or other utensil, to see if you can loosen the blades. It’s easy to cause more damage and get hurt.
Clogging and a terrible odor might suggest the blades aren’t spinning adequately. When that happens, your unit may find itself with a backlog of trapped food or stoppages. If the smell is really pungent and constant, it may also indicate drainage problems and that the unit isn’t chopping up food well. You may also need your drain cleaned.
How to Identify Garbage Disposal Damage
- Switched on but not grinding or making noise
- Clogging that has no apparent source
- An overheated disposal unit may mean that it has overfilled and tripped the breaker
- Water is leaking from the disposal, usually leaving a puddle beneath
- Pungent and persistent odors coming from the sink that rinsing won’t dissipate
- Shuts off by itself mid-usage
- Unusual noises when in use, like grinding metal
- Not working as well as it used to and taking longer to grind
