Garbage Disposal Repair
We are often using our garbage disposal units in order to help prepare food quickly and more effectively. It functions in a pretty straightforward manner – it grinds all the leftover food and then drains it with a flow of water. Good garbage disposal units are built in order to last for more than a decade. Once some strange humming sounds appear, a loud squeaky noise or the unit begins producing smoke, you are going to realize that something is wrong. Do not forget to clean your unit on a regular basis using lemons.
Here are some valuable tips that may help you:
- First of all, make sure that you turned off the circuit breaker that feeds electricity to the garbage disposal
- Check if the disposal is jammed
- Check if the unit does not grind or drain
- Check if the unit is producing some strange noises or smoke
- Do not forget to perform regular maintenance/Cleaning with appropriate chemicals or using lemon halves
Our qualified as well as genuinely experience repair engineers have managed to come up with a great list of recommendations that will help you deal with any garbage disposal unit problems. Of course, you may also use an easy to understand instruction manual that you got with the purchase from the retailer. If you cannot find useful tips there, you should try and check under the sink and are going to locate a hex looking hole. Get the right allen wrench and attach it to this hole, then force it left and right and this action may help free the stuck objects in your unit. Of course, before you do anything like that, make sure that the unit is disconnected from the power source.
In case something was put in the garbage disposal unit and then got stuck, we strongly advice you not to force your fingers down the unit in order to free blades. You will need to turn the switch off prior to forcing any type of recovery objects. Never use your hands in order to recover stuck objects. Locate tools, such as pliers in order to pull all the materials that are not grinned and stuck.
