Garbage disposals are a handy, but fragile piece of your kitchen plumbing. They are one of the most common pieces to jam or break down, and usually when you least expect it. If you run your garbage disposal and it serenades you with a bunch of funny noises after you turn it off, it is most likely getting ready to stop functioning. The best way to save money is to have regular maintenance and service performed on the unit. Give us a call today at (512) 260-7889 and we will be happy to provide you with a quote for our top-shelf repair and maintenance service.

Your garbage disposal is broken again. It is not turning on, not grinding, and may be even backing up the drain with water and food particles. You are about to run to the store to get a new one to replace it. Before you open your checkbook for an expensive new unit, make sure you exhaust your options.

If the blades are not running or it seems broken down, check the unit to make sure it does not have a blockage. Unfortunately, everyday items like meat, vegetables, fruit and eggshells can cause the blades of your garbage disposal to jam, and a misplaced spoon or knife can lodge itself in the pipe, causing the blades stop or break all together. Do not put your hand in the garbage disposal unless you have the unit unplugged from its power source. Once you have cleared the blockage, plug the unit back in. To get rid of any foul smells from your garbage disposal, try feeding it some orange peels and ice or a combination of baking soda and vinegar and run it for one minute. If it has no blockage, see if your unit has a reset button and check your breaker box. At this point, once you have tried these avenues, it is time to call your local plumber.
