Garbage Disposal

Garbage Disposal Installation & Replacement Services by Professional Plumbers in Niceville, FL and Surrounding Areas

In the modern world, a kitchen garbage disposal is almost a necessity. Still, these handy units have a number of moving parts, and when something goes wrong, it makes sense to call the professionals at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. We provide complete garbage disposal replacement services.

Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Here are some of the most common garbage disposal problems our technicians encounter on their daily service calls:

  • Odors: Garbage disposals can develop unpleasant odors from the accumulation of food, oil, and grease that coagulates inside the drain. If common remedies don’t work, there could be a drain issue that requires the services of a licensed plumber.
  • No Power: For power issues, look at the obvious first. Check to see whether the unit is unplugged or if a circuit breaker might have tripped. If everything is connected properly, press the reset button on the disposal itself.
  • Garbage Disposal is Noisy: If you hear strange noises and the blades in the disposal aren’t moving, it usually means it’s jammed.
  • Disposal Leaks: Leaks usually come from the flange connecting the disposal to the sink.
  • Clogs or Obstructions: Avoid using drain cleaners in a disposal since they can damage critical components. Most blockages are actually in the drain system and are difficult to clear without commercial-grade equipment

Repairing a garbage disposal is almost always at least as expensive as replacing it with a new one. It is for this reason that we do not offer repairs on disposals.
