So, you’ve used your garbage disposal on a daily
basis and suddenly it stopped working or appears to be making more
noise than it did in the past. There are a number of explanations as
to why this has occurred. Everything from a clogged drain to a short
in the garbage disposal can cause these types of problems.
The following is a look at some of the most common problems that occur with Garbage Disposals in Mesquite, NV.
The Disposal Does Not Turn On
All it takes is a flip of a switch to turn the
garbage disposal on. Unfortunately, some homeowners will flip the
switch and nothing will happen. When this occurs it could be because
the reset button has popped out.
All garbage disposals come with a reset button
that will automatically pop out when the motor gets overheated. This
feature prevents the unit from completely overheating and breaking.
The Disposal Leaks When in Use
There should be no leaking anywhere around the
garbage disposal. The unit should turn on and then turn off without
any water leakage occurring. If leaks do occur, it could be the
result of one of two problems.
First, it could be a result of a faulty seal. A
rubber gasket is used to secure the drain pipe and prevent any leaks.
Occasionally, the rubber gasket will become worn down and loose. When
this occurs, it will often result in the garbage disposal leaking
when in use. Replacing the rubber gasket will typically solve this
type of problem.
Another reason why Garbage Disposals in Mesquite
NV leak is because the unit is fault. If the leak appears to be
dripping from the actual garbage disposal unit, there is very little
that can be done as the unit is considered faulty. A faulty unit will
need to be completely replaced for safety reasons, as they can rarely
