When Do You Need a Garbage Disposal Repair? 

When your garbage disposal needs repairs, it’s usually easy to spot a problem. Your kitchen sink will be clogged up or the garbage disposal won’t turn on anymore. Here are some of the other reasons to call us for a garbage disposal repair.

Foul Odors

When your garbage disposal isn’t grinding up food properly, pieces of food may sit in your disposal and start to go bad. Foul odors can be the result. Odors can happen in normal circumstances, too. But if running ice or dish soap through your disposal isn’t freshening things up, there may be a bigger problem. 

Excessive Noise/Vibration

When parts become loose inside the disposal, you may get the loud sound of metal clanking around. If the disposal is causing your whole countertop to vibrate even when there isn’t food in the disposal, something may be out of balance and need to be fixed.  


Clogs can happen when too much food goes down the disposal at the same time or when you put down the wrong types of foods. A local plumbing professional can help take care of the problem. If clogs are happening often, you may either need to change what you’re trying to put into the disposal, or you may just need a new garbage disposal. 

Jammed Blades

If you hear a humming sound when you turn on your garbage disposal but it isn’t grinding up any food, you may have a jammed disposal. This can happen when something hard gets wedged in the disposal or when something fibrous jams up the blades. It’s important to not try to run the appliance while it’s jammed because that could burn out the motor. Instead, give our OC plumbing company a call for garbage disposal repairs. 

Garbage Disposal Won’t Turn On

If your garbage disposal won’t turn on, check these three things first:

  • Make sure the garbage disposal is still plugged in
  • Check the reset button on the bottom of your unit
  • Check your electrical panel for tripped breakers

If these three steps don’t fix the problem, you have a broken unit. It’s time to call Moffett Plumbing & Air for repairs!

Keeping Your Garbage Disposal in Good Condition

At Moffett Plumbing & Air, we understand that garbage disposal repairs are something you want to avoid if you can. We would love to help you keep your disposal in good condition for as long as possible. Most of your care and maintenance as a homeowner will be making sure to keep certain things from heading down your disposal. 

The biggest troublemakers are grease, coffee grounds, stringy vegetables, non-food items, egg shells, seafood shells, rice, pasta, oats, and fruit pits. It might be tempting to grind up everything that’s on your plate, but you’ll have to be selective if you want to keep the plumber away. To keep your blades clean and sharp, grind up some ice every few weeks. And always make sure to not put too much food in the disposal at one time and to use plenty of water.
