Garbage Disposal Repair & Troubleshooting



Garbage Disposal Repair

When your garbage disposal is leaking, clogged, or simply not working, My Appliance Repair Pro technicians are experts at troubleshooting and repairning garbage disposals. We will having you up and running in no time. Give us a call at (520) 788-4004.


We repair two main types of garbage disposals:

Are You experiencing any of the following?


Continuous Feed

Continuous feed garbage disposals operate by flipping a wall or accessory switch. A rubber shield or baffle contains food within the unit and helps the disposal run quietly.


Batch Feed

Batch feed garbage disposals activate when the disposal lid is engaged and the disposal is covered.


Common Garbage Disposal Issues We Repair

If you are experiencing any of the below mentioned disposal issues, give My Appliance Repair Pro a call. Our technicians will work quickly to identify and repair the problem.


The garbage disposal is not working—no power.

Check your fuse box or circuit breakers for power issues. Otherwise locate the small, red reset button on the bottom of your system. If it is popped out, the disposal has overheated. Clear the jam and try resetting it. If you have power and there is no sound, the motor is probably worn out.


The garbage disposal is jammed.

High fiber foods, cornhusks, avocado leaves, bones, utensils, and more can jam your disposal. Never put your hand in the disposal to clear this jam. If your disposal has a hole for a socket wrench under the motor, use the wrench to rotate the masher plate and attempt to clear the jam. If you want professional help, we are always here to answer your call!


The garbage disposal drain is clogged.

Address clogs by turning off the power at the main disconnect, disassembling the trap, and clearing the clog with a drain snake. After reassembly, turn the water on to check if the clog has cleared. Need help? Call our technicians.


The garbage disposal is making excessive noise.

Bones and other foreign objects can cause excessive noise and jams in garbage disposals. Noise may also result from loose mounting screws, broken flyweights, and worn lugs and blades. Address this issue promptly, as loose screws can cause water to leak into the motor and bearings.


There is a leak in one place or more.

Leaks usually indicate a loose sink flange or a rubber gasket in need of replacement. However, if the leak is coming from the body of the disposal, the unit will have to be replaced. The sooner you call our team, the better we can prevent major damage.
