Garbage Disposal Under Sink

Appleton Garbage Disposal Installation & Repairs

While garbage disposals are one of the handiest appliances in your home, whenever they get jammed, it can lead to a clogged kitchen sink in no time. With the complex inner mechanism of the disposal and its connection to your sink’s drainage, getting the sink back to normal usually requires fixing or replacing the disposal. A temporary solution might be to plunge the sink – but that’s no long-term fix.

Here at Valentine, our skilled plumbing services include both residential and commercial garbage disposal repairs. And if your disposal has seen better days, we’ve got you covered with our replacement and installation services.

Our Appleton plumbers can pick up and install a new unit for you, but we’re also more than happy to install any model that you prefer to buy yourself.

Common Issues with Garbage Disposals

It’s always a bummer when a garbage disposal stops functioning properly. Here are some signs to watch for:

  • Leaking: Sometimes disposals rust out at the bottom or their seals fail, resulting in a drip.
  • Jamming: Too much food or tough items like seeds or foreign objects can jam up a disposal.
  • Humming: This might mean that the motor or impeller is seized up or burned out.
  • Dead silent: When you flip the switch and the disposal gives you absolutely no response.
  • Clogged: The disposal is so jammed with food that it’s stopping your sink drain from doing its job.

While a homeowner can rectify some of the issues on their own, some of the issues above are best for a plumber to assess and professionally fix.

Garbage Disposal FAQs

Here are some common questions people ask about garbage disposals:

How to clean a garbage disposal?

Cleaning your sink’s garbage disposal involves turning off the disposal and unplugging it for safety. Then, put a cup of ice cubes and a half cup of salt into the disposal. This will help to loosen any grime or food particles. Turn the disposal back on and run cold water down the drain to flush it out. Lastly, for a fresh scent, cut a lemon or lime into small pieces and run them through the disposal. When in doubt, be sure to contact a professional garbage disposal installer for proper cleaning tips.

How to fix a garbage disposal?

If you feel comfortable fixing your garbage disposal, you can try a few things. First of all, if it’s not turning on at all, you can check your electrical panel to see if the circuit breaker has tripped. If it has, simply flip it back to the ‘on’ position. If your disposal is humming but not grinding, it might be jammed. In this case, you’ll need to unplug the unit and use an allen wrench to manually turn the blades from underneath the disposal to free the jam. If your disposal is leaking, you’ll likely need to replace the seal or, in some cases, the entire unit. If you’re not comfortable doing these repairs yourself, it’s best to call in a professional garbage disposal plumber.

How to install a garbage disposal?

Installing a garbage disposal can be a DIY project if you’re comfortable with some basic plumbing and electrical work. To start, you’ll remove the old unit if there is one. Then, you’ll need to assemble the new disposal according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once assembled, you’ll connect the disposal to the sink by screwing it into place. Next, you’ll connect the drain and dishwasher drain line, if applicable. Finally, you’ll need to connect the disposal to the electrical supply either by hardwiring it or plugging it into an outlet. Remember, this is a simplified overview. Always consult your disposal’s instruction manual and local codes, or a professional garbage disposal installer with questions.

How much is a garbage disposal replacement?

Your garbage disposal replacement cost will be determined based on multiple factors. These include the size of the unit that will be installed, the brand chosen, the cost of labor, the warranty, and also any additional electricity like installing another outlet and ensuring that your home can safely operate with another powered device. If you have questions about your specific garbage disposal replacement service, please contact the plumbers at Valentine.
