What are some signs my garbage disposal needs repair?

Your garbage disposal is an essential kitchen appliance, and any changes in its performance can indicate a need for repair or even replacement.

Here are some key signs to watch out for:

  1. Unusual Noises: If your garbage disposal starts making unfamiliar grinding, humming, or rattling noises, it could indicate something is stuck, or parts are wearing out.
  2. Slow Draining: A disposal that drains slowly despite clear pathways may have internal issues needing professional attention.
  3. Frequent Clogs: While occasional clogs can happen, frequent clogging could suggest a problem with the disposal’s grinding ability.
  4. Electrical Issues: Tripping circuit breakers or the need for frequent resets can indicate electrical problems within the unit.
  5. Ineffectiveness: If your disposal struggles to break down food waste as efficiently as it used to, the blades may be dull or damaged.

If you notice any of these issues with your garbage disposal, it’s time to consult the experts.
