Garbage Disposal Repair in Jacksonville, FL

Most of the time you know if you have a clogged or non-functioning garbage disposal. What you might not know is that if you delay the garbage disposal repair it can trigger clogs further down your drain lines causing more complicated and pricey drain clogs and backups. David Gray plumbers are experienced with multiple garbage disposal brands and sizes to identify and correct issues efficiently and reliably when they occur. Common garbage disposal repairs that we find are:

  • Clogs: Water won’t drain through the unit because food or waste is clogging the drainpipe.
  • Unresponsive unit: You flip the switch, but nothing happens. This could be due to a bad connection or a unit that needs to be reset.
  • Noise: The system hums because the impellor or motor needs to be replaced.
  • Leaks: Water is found underneath the sink near the motor from faulty seals or broken pipes.
  • Smells: Faulty seals permit waste and odors to escape endangering the sanitation of the areas.
  • Food jams: Too much food, or the wrong kind of items, are inhibiting the normal blade motion.

Contact David Gray Plumbing today to schedule a garbage disposal inspection or repair. 

Troubleshooting Garbage Disposal Problems

While the team at David Gray Plumbing is here to assist with your garbage disposal needs, sometimes you will find that you can handle the problem on your own. If you have minor problems, you can troubleshoot them at home. Here’s how:

  • Reset your disposal– Turn your disposal off and wait a bit, then push the reset button on the bottom of the disposal.
  • Unjam your disposal – Look on the bottom of your garbage disposal for a hexagonal hole for an Allen key. Insert the key, then turn the flywheel slightly to try to loosen a clog in the disposal.
  • Tighten the bolts on your disposal– If your disposal has a leak, start by checking for loose bolts. Tighten them or cover them with plumber’s putty to fix the problem.

If these don’t fix the issue, pick up the phone and call David Gray Plumbing at (904) 605-8190 or contact us online.
