Garbage Disposal Repair -Aliso Viejo

Is your garbage disposal clogged?

We take for granted our garbage disposal , never really thinking about it.

We just flush the trash down the sink and expect that it will work.

Most of the time the garbage disposal will work just fine, grinding up the things that we throw down there.

But what happens when it stops working and what does that look like if you’ve never had it happen to you.

Well for starters you may notice a foul smell coming from the sink.

You may also notice the sink is clogging up with water either when you turn the water on or when you run the dishwasher and yes they are all connected.


Don’t Ignore The Problem

If you notice any of these things happening your garbage disposal maybe clogged.

Sometimes this can be something you can fix by turning off and unplugging your disposal under the sink and hitting the red reset button that is located on the back of the motor underneath the sink.

After you hit the reset button you may have to check inside the disposal always make sure the disposal is unplugged when doing this.

Check inside the disposal and only use an actual garbage disposal wrench to move the blades.

Never stick your hand inside the disposal.

If this doesn’t release the debris that is causing the clog it might be time to call a professional.

Has your garbage disposal stopped working

When you flip the switch on your garbage disposal does it make a grinding sound or do you notice a rubber burning smell?

Let Streamline come out to your Aliso Viejo home or business to diagnose the problem with your garbage disposal.

We will give you both options either to replace the unit altogether or to repair it so you have all the facts before making a choice.



What Can You Put in your garbage disposal?

Most people think you can put anything down the garbage disposal and most other times we do and it may work for a while but sticking things  down the disposal that don’t belong will eventually cause a strain on the motor or clog the disposal.

As a plumbing company we at Streamline have seen just about everything put down the disposal.

Streamline plumbing recommends that the following items not be placed down the garbage disposal.

Putting these items down the disposal can cause clogs or motor failure, resulting in an unnecessary repair or replacement.

  • Bacon grease-use a can and put in the trash- this clogs the drain
  • Other fats
  • Fruit peels-may smell good but also clogs the drain
