Most common Garbage Dispose Systems stops operating, but then simply shuts down when you turn it on. There may be minor leaks around the disposal, there may be a slow draining water pump, or there may just be a small clog somewhere that has been difficult to get rid of. If your garbage disposal will not operate properly, then you will probably notice a low flow indicator at the bottom of the waste container. If this indicator is left on, it will result in the waste becoming wet, therefore causing odor issues. You may also have difficulty accessing the waste container and this can lead to an embarrassing mess.
Garbage Dispose Repair Issues often starts with a clog, but can also be caused by some other major issues. The main problem that causes your garbage disposal to malfunction is a clogged dump trap. You can find a large number of different kinds of clogs but the most common are the kind that clog drain traps and/or the kind that clog the water pump or the main waste line.
To remove the clog, you will need to disconnect the waste line and drain trap, then the pump and the main water line. You will then need to connect your waste system to a hosepipe, which will then go to the dumpster.
The next step to removing the clog is to locate the drain trap and drain pipe. Usually, these drains are located near the bottom of your disposal container. You should be able to access this drain trap by removing the bottom drain tube and then unhooking the drain trap from the drainage line. When you unhook it, you may need to pry it up in order to remove it, so make sure that you don’t break anything else.
Once you have removed the drain trap from the drain line, you will need to flush out any debris that might be left behind. This may include food particles, grease, and even hair clippings. Once all of this has been flushed out, you will need to reconnect the drain trap and drain line.
To be sure that you have successfully repaired the clog, you should turn the garbage disposal off and then put it back on. If you do not hear any noise or see any movement, then you will likely need to get the clog repaired. However, if you hear some noise or see a move, then you can use a professional garbage disposal repair company for further assistance.
