Leaking Garbage Disposal Repair in Houston, TX

Have you found a pool of water under your kitchen sink? Garbage disposal problems usually show the first signs with puddles or a small leak under the sink.

Before you go digging under your sink, here are the six most common reasons for a Houston garbage disposal leaking:

  1. Sink Flange
  2. Sink Gasket
  3. Discharge Pipes
  4. Unit Cracked
  5. Faulty Dishwasher Connection
  6. Unit Has Shifted

If your garbage disposal is stuck or leaking, call ARS/Rescue Rooter for professional garbage disposal repair in Houston. Our plumbing service technicians can diagnose and repair a wide range of garbage disposal failures including when the disposal isn't turning on, spinning, or draining.

Garbage Disposal Noises to Listen For

Is your kitchen sink disposal making funny noises? It could be telling you it needs Houston garbage disposal repair. Call us to schedule service and have a trained plumber from ARS/Rescue Rooter come over if you hear any of the following sounds:

Loud Clatter

A loud clattering can mean that a hard object like a spoon was dropped down the sink and has entered the garbage disposal. You can retrieve it, but it’s very important that you turn off the power to the unit first! Check the owner’s manual to learn how to turn off the disposal and remove the object from the drain.

If you have removed the object(s) and the disposal is still making noise then it may require professional service or new garbage disposal installation.

Humming Noise

A humming noise usually means the masher is jammed, which means the motor is trying to turn the unit, but it’s stuck, usually due to a foreign object or vegetable residue.

This will also require that you turn off the electricity to the disposal, and then you’ll need to locate a special hex wrench that came with your disposal (six-sided metal tool bent in an “L” shape). Insert the hex into the matching hole and give it a few turns. When you can turn the inner workings with the hex wrench, restore the electricity and test the unit.

If it works momentarily then jams again, repeat this procedure. If it doesn’t work and still hums, even though you can turn the unit with the wrench, the unit may need professional service or replacement.

What if it makes no noise?

If the disposal is silent when you turn it on, it could be an electrical problem. To troubleshoot, first make sure the unit is plugged in. Then find the red reset button on the underside of the disposal. Hold the reset button until it jams. Try again to turn the disposal switch to test the garbage disposal.

What Should I Avoid Putting Down a Garbage Disposal?

We often think that our garbage disposal is indestructible because it just seems like that ultimate line of defense against our otherwise troublesome trash, but this isn’t always true. Your garbage disposal can still be “vulnerable” in certain situations.

To put it simply, garbage disposals can’t take everything! You can’t just throw any and everything in your disposal and expect it to chop it to smithereens and be done with it. If you want to avoid Houston garbage disposal repair in the future try to avoid putting these objects down your drain/garbage disposal:

  • Eggshells
  • Animal bones
  • Rice and pasta
  • Pits and/or seeds
  • Twist ties
  • Pull tabs
  • Rubber bands
  • Glass
  • Screws and nails
  • Cigarette butts
  • Paper
  • Plastic
  • Plants
  • Flowers

Replacing or installing a new garbage disposal can be difficult due to working in the confined space under your sink. Let one of our experienced plumbers come out to provide you with a variety of options or install a garbage disposal you provide us.

Tommy was the technical sales and extremely knowledgeable. Tommy impartially made recommendations to achieve a reliable, quality, cost-effective solution based upon my requirements. Carlos and Angel of ARS showed up the same afternoon (same day install) and were careful, respectful, and paid attention to every detail of the installation. They wore protective Footes at all times in the house and wrapped and taped the bottom of the old hot water heater with materials so it did not drip anywhere while being carried out of our home. As an engineer and a “bit” of a perfectionist, I could not be more impressed with the quality of their work. They were not rushing to finish the job, like most contractors, and they thoroughly answered my occasional question. Overall, I could not be more impressed with the entire experience and highly recommend the team of ARS.

Jason was fantastic, very professional. Got in, did what I asked and got out. Answered all my questions and concerns. Give this guy a raise. On the other hand I had an appointment time and ended up later than expected. Had to call twice to find out what was going on. I think better communication should be implemented. I would have liked an update from someone if your running beyond my appointment time. Overall grade , the price was great, service was great but the communication was not so good. I will use you guys again.
