Garbage Disposal Repair Vs. Replacement
Choosing between repairing or replacing your garbage disposal can be tricky, and it largely depends on the specific issues you're experiencing. Generally speaking, small, worn-out parts or other minor problems are easily resolved through repair service. More significant problems will necessitate a replacement.
Signs You Need Garbage Disposal Repair
If the disposal makes a humming noise but isn't grinding, this could be a sign of a stuck flywheel. This problem can usually be fixed without replacing the entire unit. Similarly, if the disposal is leaking from the top or the sides, you might need to replace some gaskets or seals.
Signs You May Need to Replace Your Garbage Disposal
Meanwhile, if the disposal is more than ten years old and has frequent issues, you should consider replacing it. Older units tend to have more problems, and the cost of frequent repairs can add up over time, making replacement a more economical option. Likewise, replacement is usually the best option if you are dealing with a cracked internal seal or a burnt-out motor.
Maintaining Your New Garbage Disposal
Garbage disposals are an integral part of our kitchen utilities, providing a convenient way to manage food waste. While their average lifespan can range from 8 to 15 years, with proper maintenance and care, you may get even longer out of your new disposal.
Here are some items you should never put down your garbage disposal:
- Coffee Grounds
- Grease, Oils, and Fats
- Pasta and Rice
- Pits and Seeds
- Potato Peels
We also encourage you to keep your disposal clean. A common DIY cleaning method is using a mixture of vinegar and baking soda, followed by boiling water to remove grime and odors. Allow the vinegar and baking soda to foam up in your disposal for five or so minutes before rinsing. We recommend doing this about once a month.
