Do You Need Professional Garbage Disposal Repair?

If your garbage disposal is humming, leaking, not working, or making no noise when it’s turned on, it may be necessary to call a professional for repairs. Our experts at Blind & Sons can handle any repair, from removing clogs to sealing leaks or replacing the entire unit. Our most common questions include:

  • Why is my garbage disposal humming? A humming garbage disposal is typically the result of something stuck in the impeller. It will often be something fibrous, such as banana peels, or a foreign object, like paper or utensils. Unclogging a unit can be dangerous and should be left to professionals like our team at Blind & Sons.
  • How do you reset a garbage disposal? In most cases, a garbage disposal can be reset by unplugging it or turning off the breaker, then pressing the reset button on the disposal. Finally, turn on the cold water and restore power. If it does not start operating normally, turn it back off and call a professional.

What shouldn’t you put down your disposal?

If you want to keep your garbage disposal from needing the attention of a professional plumber, you need to know what you should and should not put down it. While a disposal may take almost anything you throw at first, certain foods and substances will cause clogs, stuck blades, and excessive wear over time.

Always avoid putting these items down your disposal system:

  • Grease, oils, and similar substances
  • Materials that will absorb water or grind into a pulp, like starches or wood
  • Fibrous foods, which will end up as tough threads twined around your blades
  • Hard food items, such as peach pits and bones
  • Large amounts of meat or skin

Whether you’re installing a new garbage disposal or replacing an older model, our plumbing experts at Blind & Sons can help. We offer installation and replacement services throughout Akron and the surrounding areas of Northeast Ohio. Our services are backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. When it comes to installation, some of the most common questions we receive include:

  • How long does a garbage disposal typically last? Most garbage disposals will last eight to 12 years with proper maintenance and care. At Blind & Sons, we install quality Insinkerator systems, and we can provide the maintenance and repairs required to ensure long-lasting, reliable service.
  • How much should it cost to install a garbage disposal? In most cases, it will cost a few hundred dollars to install one, between the purchase price and the cost of labor. A single sink installation is less complex and will require less time to accomplish, while a double sink installation may take longer.
  • Does a plumber or electrician install a garbage disposal? In most cases, only a plumber is required to install one, though an electrician may be necessary if there is not an existing electrical outlet or supply line available. In either case, it’s not something that homeowners should attempt on their own.
