Common Culprits: What Causes Garbage Disposal Problems?
There are several common causes of garbage disposal problems:
Improper installation: If a garbage disposal is not installed correctly, it may not work properly or could break down sooner than expected.
Lack of maintenance: Without proper cleaning and maintenance, a garbage disposal can become clogged, damaged or worn out over time.
Overuse: Garbage disposals are designed to handle certain types of waste, and using them to dispose of materials they're not designed for can lead to problems.
Dull blades: Over time, the blades in a garbage disposal can become dull or corroded, reducing the unit's effectiveness.
Power issues: Garbage disposals require electricity to operate, and issues with the power supply or electrical components can cause the unit to malfunction.
Objects accidentally dropped in: Hard or non-food items accidentally dropped into the disposal, such as silverware or bones, can cause damage or blockage.

Garbage Disposal Maintenance
Proper maintenance of your garbage disposal can help prevent costly repairs or replacements. At King Rooter & Plumbing, our experienced technicians can provide maintenance services to keep your garbage disposal working efficiently. Here are some tips to keep your disposal in good working order:
- Run cold water: Always run cold water while using your garbage disposal to help flush food particles through the system.
- Avoid hard materials: Do not dispose of hard materials such as bones, shells, or fruit pits in the disposal. They can damage the blades and cause a jam.
- Clean regularly: Use ice and vinegar to clean the disposal blades and prevent build-up of debris. You can also grind citrus fruit skins or squirt dish detergent through the running disposal 3-4 times a month to help keep it clean and fresh.
- Avoid grease: Do not pour grease or fat down the disposal as it can clog the drain and cause damage to the disposal.
