Common Issues & Repair

Garbage disposals in your home or office building can run into many problems. With proper maintenance and usage you can prevent damage and failure

  • Overheating - If you overload your disposal or something goes wrong, many times the disposal will shut off and need to be reset. The reset button is commonly found on the bottom of the unit. NOTE: Use caution when trying to reset the disposal and never reach inside the disposal, generally if the unit shuts off multiple times something is wrong and a professional should be consulted before trying to fix it yourself.

  • Jamming - If your unit is making noise, but isn't working properly there is most likely a jam and the system is stuck. (Never put your hand into the drain and near the chamber of the grinder, it can result in serious injury.) If you can see the stoppage, like a fork or spoon, turn off the circuit breaker to the unit and ensure it doesn't have power. You can then attempt to remove the blockage, but if it requires excessive force or you are having trouble call Mac Wilson Plumbing LLC before you create bigger problem than you originally had.
