Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement in Northridge, CA

A garbage disposal is a modern day appliance that keeps your kitchen clean and food scraps out of your trash cans. With nearly half the households in Northridge, California owning garbage disposals, we stay pretty busy answering phone calls throughout the day when frustrated homeowners are at their wits end with their malfunctioning disposals.

Although a garbage disposal is quite handy, it does come with its own set of problems. The good news is that these problems can almost always be avoided if you use your disposal properly and take the time to maintain it.  Whether you have a clogged drain, a leaky seal, or a disposal that has stopped grinding up food well, chances are the solution is something simple and easy to fix.

Common Garbage Disposal Repairs

At My Northridge Plumber Hero, our plumbing specialists respond to a variety of calls throughout the day. Sometimes it is for a clogged kitchen sink or a leaky hose. Usually, these problems happen with garbage disposals because of either poor installation or misuse.

Many times leak will develop in seals because too much food is being placed in the disposal at one time. When the disposal tries to grind up too much waste at one time, the motor works harder and vibrations may occur. Over time, these vibrations will cause seals to loosen and leaks will form.

If your disposal constantly trips the circuit breaker, or it sounds like metal is being ground every time you turn it on, this could have something to do with how it was installed. The power source may not be adequate to run the disposal or there may be loose screws or other parts that are banging around when the disposal is on.

The only way to know for sure what is causing your disposal problems is to call for professional plumbing service.
