We at LA Metro Plumbers often receive service calls involving garbage disposals. They are perhaps one of the most misused appliances in any home. It is not uncommon to find that someone thought they could dispose more than it could handle, or sometimes it is turned on with a foreign object inside. Garbage disposals are only designed to handle light food residue that is rinsed from plates and cooking utensils before they go into the dishwasher, and when they take on more than they can handle, problems arise. Large quantities of food and debris going into disposers can overwhelm them and clog the kitchen sink drain. Don’t get stuck with the frustration of dealing with a faulty garbage disposal. LA Metro Plumbers will repair or replace broken garbage disposers and get your sink flowing like new.
Some people may discover that their garbage disposer makes a hum but isn’t actually working properly. For a simple tip, press the reset button located on the bottom of the disposer. If that doesn’t work, turn off the power switch and shine a flashlight into the drain. Look for a foreign object (coin, plastic bread tie or staple). Remove the item with pliers or a grasping tool. It is never recommended to put your hand inside a garbage disposer. Also, your disposer may have a hex key jam clearing tool. Look for it under the sink or taped to the disposer. If you find it, check for a slot at the bottom of the disposer where the tool can be inserted and turned back and forth to clear the jam.
