Typically, your garbage disposal does a good job of breaking down unwanted organic scraps in your sink. When a garbage disposal works as it should, you can quickly and easily eliminate significant volumes of natural waste. However, a garbage disposal that doesn’t function at its best can be more of a headache than a convenience. As with any appliance, your garbage disposal can wear out over time and eventually break. Human error can also cause a garbage disposal to break, such as putting coffee grinds, grease, and other problematic materials down the drain. If you suspect your garbage disposal is no longer working at its best and needs replacement, here’s when to call us for garbage disposal installation Las Vegas.


Unusual Sounds

One telltale sign of a malfunctioning garbage disposal is an unusual noise. Sometimes, a strange noise coming from the garbage disposal can be caused by a simple problem like a piece of silverware falling into the garbage disposal. The garbage disposal’s arms can toss the utensil around, causing a sound of metal against metal. If you hear a metallic sound, check for this problem first. The disposal can also make strange sounds if the arms are misaligned.



Drain clogs are nearly inevitable at some point. But if you notice frequent clogs, the issue may lie with your garbage disposal. Frequent clogs may be a sign that you need a disposal with a higher capacity. It can also indicate a malfunction that needs an expert’s attention for quality garbage disposal repair Las Vegas.


Constant Resets

Every garbage disposal has a reset button. This button helps the appliance restore its normal functions after an unusual or unforeseen situation such as clogs or heavy loads. If the garbage disposal is working correctly, it should not need to be reset very often. If you find that frequent resets are necessary, your garbage disposal may be nearing the end of its lifespan. The wires can also become loose, which warrants garbage disposal repair Las Vegas.


Foul Smells

By nature, garbage disposals may have unpleasant smells from time to time. However, most foul odors can be cured by cleaning or regularly rinsing your disposal. If a bad smell persists, contact a professional to take the unit apart and check for clogs.


Leaking Water

Water leaks can also arise from an issue with your garbage disposal. Garbage disposals have a lifespan of roughly 10-15 years. With age, a disposal can naturally develop cracks or leaks. If this happens, a disposal replacement is usually your best option.
