Expert Clogged Garbage Disposal Repair in Philadelphia

Quick Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement

There Are Many Reasons for Garbage Disposal Failure

As a food processor for your kitchen waste, your garbage disposal works hard at grinding food so that it can be safely flushed down the drain. The blades do amazing work, but they get broken or jammed when they encounter the wrong items. When your disposal fails, it’s not usually a self-serve problem —- it’s time to call for garbage disposal repair. At Guaranteed, we’ve seen it all, and we’re here to get your disposal running. A few of the common issues we find in clogged garbage disposals throughout Philadelphia homes include:

  • Hard stuff in the grinder damaging the blades
  • Slippery stuff in the grinder jamming the blades
  • Drain below is clogged, usually in the bend of the P trap
  • Overheating the motor from constant hard use
  • Time has worn it out, showing as seals leaking or complete shutdown

A Few Safety Tips for Garbage Disposal Care

Whatever is causing your garbage disposal’s problems, it’s important not to put your fingers down it to try to clear a clogged garbage disposal or retrieve objects. Our experienced garbage disposal repair team can help — they understand what makes your garbage disposal grind and what stops it in its tracks. They’ll also tell you that many of these problems can be avoided. Here are some tips on how to help keep your garbage disposal on the job:

  • Avoid processing rocks, metal, nuts, fruit pits, glass
  • Don’t put potato peels, cucumber peels, or banana peels through the grinder
  • Beware of rice and other waste that expands and blocks the bending joint below the sink
  • Give your disposal a break when processing large amounts of food waste
