Garbage Disposal Repair & Troubleshooting

A garbage disposal in your home kitchen can be a huge convenience. However if food and foreign objects become jammed or clogged in the drain or your garbage disposal makes a grinding noise or leaks its time to Tetra Tech Appliance Repair. Leave this potentially dangerous repair to our professional technicians.

We repair two main types of garbage disposals:

  • Batch Feed

This type of garbage disposal is activated when the lid of the disposal is covered.  Provides extra safety for homes with children.

  • Continuous Feed

This type of garbage disposal works when you toggle a wall or accessory switch.

Call our technicians if you notice any of the following:

  • Clogged Drain

If your garbage disposal has a clogged drain, you can disassemble the trap and clear the clog with a snake and reassemble and flush.  You could also call Tetra Tech Appliance Repair professional technicians.

  • Jammed

Garbage disposals can become jammed when too much is added at once, if a foreign object has become lodged, or if fibers from food have jammed.  Do not use your hand to clear this jam. Call us to fix this potentially dangerous repair.

  • Making Loud Noise

Loud Noise may occur in your garbage disposal when bones or other harder objects are disposed of.  Abnormally loud noise may also be attributed to loose mounting screws or worn lugs / blades.  These issues can turn into much bigger issues overnight. Call us today to get these items repaired.

  • Not Working / No Power

If your garbage disposal has no power or is not working, check your fuse panel. Ensure there is power going to your disposal. Check to see if there is a small, red reset button on the bottom of your garbage disposal. If it has popped out, your garbage disposal may have overheated. This could be due to a jam or a blown motor. Let the professionals at Tetra Tech Appliance Repair take care of you.

  • Water Leaking

If garbage disposal leaks go unnoticed, major damage can occur in your cabinets and surrounding areas.  Leaks are often caused by a loose sink flange or a damaged rubber gasket.  A Tetra Tech Appliance Repair technician can let you know if the problem can be resolved with parts, or if a new unit is needed.

Hubert is qualified and has excellent work ethics. He understood our time constraint with the broken dryer, and he came late in the evening to replace the broken part. He is excellent!
