Is It Worth It to Repair a Garbage Disposal?

Whether it’s worth it to repair a garbage disposal depends on several factors, including the extent of the damage, the age of the unit, and the cost of repairs compared to replacement. However, garbage disposal repairs are often a good way to get your disposal working like new again, provided a repair can be made. For minor garbage disposal problems, repairs are far cheaper than replacing the entire system. Garbage disposal replacement is only a more cost-effective solution when the unit is 10 years old or older or the cost of repairs is approaching the price of a new system. 

Not sure whether your garbage disposal needs to be repaired or replaced? Reach out to our plumbers to schedule an inspection! We are available to assess the condition of your system and determine the best possible solution. 

Tips for Preventing Garbage Disposal Repairs 

Garbage disposal problems are incredibly common, but they are also easily preventable. Through a little bit of maintenance and a few precautions, you can significantly reduce the risk of garbage disposal repairs. 

Below are some of our best tips for maintaining your garbage disposal:

  • Avoid putting non-food items or hard objects down the disposal
  • Do not overload the disposal with large amounts of food waste
  • Use plenty of cold water while running the disposal
  • Regularly clean the disposal by grinding ice cubes

What Is the Most Common Reason for a Garbage Disposal Not Working?

The most common reason for a garbage disposal not working is a jam. Jams can occur when something hard or fibrous – such as bones, fruit pits, or vegetable peels – gets stuck in the disposal’s grinding chamber. When this happens, the motor may become overloaded and shut off as a safety precaution. Other potential reasons for a garbage disposal not working include a power supply issue, a faulty switch, or a malfunctioning motor. 

5 Things You Should Not Put Down Your Garbage Disposal 

Garbage disposals are designed to handle a wide range of food waste, including leftover meats, vegetables, and fruits. They are capable of grinding down soft foods, liquids, and chopped solid foods effectively; however, you must avoid putting hard or fibrous materials down the disposal to prevent damage and clogs.  

Here is a list of items to avoid putting down your garbage disposal:

  1. Hard objects: Bones, fruit pits, shells, or seeds can damage the blades or motor of the garbage disposal. 
  2. Fibrous materials: Vegetable peels, corn husks, celery, banana peels, and asparagus can get tangled in the disposal and lead to clogs.
  3. Non-food items: Metal utensils, glassware, plastic, rubber bands, or twist ties should never be disposed of in the garbage disposal.
  4. Oils, greases, and fats: These substances can solidify in the plumbing system and cause major blockages over time. 
  5. Coffee grounds: Large amounts of coffee grounds can accumulate and form clumps that block the drain.
