Hydromechanical receives quite a few plumbing service calls that involve garbage disposals units malfunctioning. That’s because very few people understand that garbage disposals units are generally designed to handle light food residue only, and when they’re loaded with heavier tasks than they are designed for, that can shorten their lifetime dramatically or even completely destroy them.

Large pieces or too much debris dumped into the disposal can jam the unit and clog your kitchen sink drain. Call Hydromechanical and we will repair or replace broken garbage disposers, and help out with that clogged kitchen sink as well.

Common Problem:

Garbage disposer makes a humming noise, but it doesn’t operate properly.

Solution:

Pressing the reset button usually solves this, if it’s nothing too serious. If it doesn’t work however, turn off the power and use a flashlight to have a look inside the drain. Sometimes, foreign objects like metal or plastic can jam the blades. Remove them with a pair of pliers or any other grasping tool. We usually recommend NOT to stick your hand in there, but if you have to, ALWAYS make sure the power is off completely.

If it still doesn’t seem to fix the problem, give our garbage disposal Specialists a call at Hydromechanical and we’ll send someone over for a quick fix. Situations like this typically don’t take too long to repair.
