Not only will we fix your problem, but we can help you with some common tips to help take care of your disposal.    

Garbage Disposal Maintenance

  • Keep your disposal clean, run your disposal with a little soap and cold running water for about a minute after heavy use. This will allow your disposal time to clear out any food stuff that might be stuck. 
  • You can’t put anything down the disposal even large animal bones can sometimes be too much for a disposal. Also keep large amounts of food items like spaghetti or rice away from the drain as they can expand and cause your drain to clog. 
  • Grind a few ice cubes. Small ice cubes are enough to knock out any food stuff that might be left in your unit without harming it. 
  • My garbage disposal is not working! Check the bottom of your unit there will be a red or black button. This button is the reset switch and in some cases will fix any problems you are having, but be careful if it keeps getting tripped or your unit is making a “funny” noise then you might have an obstruction and running the unit could burn out the motor.
