Common Garbage Disposal Repairs
As a vital component in your after-meal clean up, your garbage disposal must work efficiently at all times. There are several problems that we see most often with these units. These issues include:
If the unit has too much material in it, or if hard substances such as bones or shells were inserted, you may experience jamming. In many cases, a jammed unit can fix itself. However, the jam is also likely to cause issues with the blades and motor.
Over time, the hole in the housing can become worn out, causing a leak. Other causes for leaks include loose screws and gaskets. A leaking unit should be repaired right away.
Not turning on
Other mechanical issues can cause the disposal to fail to turn on. In these cases, it’s always best to call a professional, rather than to troubleshoot the issue on your own.
Reasons to Replace your Faucet or Sink
There are many reasons why a homeowner would choose to replace the sink and faucets in their kitchen. Some of the most common reasons are:
- Replacing a faucet that is showing signs of wear and tear is always a good idea. If the faucet is dripping or leaking, it will cause water to leak behind your sink, causing rot and mold. This mold compromises the structural integrity of your counter.
- Specifically, if the faucet is leaking from the nozzle or the base, it’s an indication that there are broken components, and the unit would be better off completely replaced.
- The most common reason to replace your sink is for design purposes, to update the unit and ensure that it matches the rest of your kitchen.
- Broken components such as a broken seal flange are also a good reason to replace the sink.
