Why Did My Garbage Disposal Stop Working?

Chances are the reason is something as simple as a jammed propeller. Often, food particles become stuck in the blades of the disposal, making it difficult for the propeller to move. Sometimes this happens because the blades are dull and the food waste isn’t getting chopped up well. However, sometimes it can be the direct result of the wrong type of food waste being put into the disposal. To avoid jammed blades, avoid putting the following types of food waste into the disposal:

  • Potato skins
  • Grease
  • Cooking oils
  • Egg shells
  • Uncooked spaghetti noodles
  • Carrot shavings
  • Celery stalks
  • Corn husks

Also, if you have two tubs that make up your sink, take care not to leave cooking waste or trash from wrappers in the side that has the disposal attached to it. This will prevent items from falling into the disposal that can harm the blades. Other reasons for an inoperative garbage disposal include poor wiring, improper installation, and age of the appliance.

How Long Will My Garbage Disposal Last?

The average household garbage disposal has a life expectancy of roughly 10 years. Many times our customers will opt to purchase a new disposal if the repairs are not simple and straightforward because the cost to repair usually exceeds the cost to replace. Our contractors are always upfront and honest about repair costs. These qualified individuals are always looking out for your financial interests. If you opt to replace your disposal, we can suggest a number of compatible models that will last for many years.
