I have decided to give a few hints after my reviews on various garbage disposers on the market. Sometimes we just don’t know how to deal with problems, so I want to help you with that.
A lot of people struggle with unclogging – sometimes you only realize afterwards that a certain thing you put down the disposer, was too hard or stringy. Or you overloaded it. You don’t have to call a professional. The internet has various videos with step by step instructions on how to fix that.
A plumber is not always needed to fix leaking problems. Save yourself a lot of trouble and look at videos on the internet with ways to fix and prevent leaking.
Leaking problems do not always lie with the unit – it is mostly connected to the way your machine has been installed. Or one of the pipes is faulty. If the problem still persists after you have checked everything, a plumber might have to come to your house.
Problems with the on/off switch
If the on/off switch does not work, it may be because:
- The plug is faulty
- There is a power failure
- The reset button (which turns the machine off to prevent damage) – press it to see if it helps
- Something you threw in to be disposed, caused a blockage and the power tripped
Look at some videos on the internet for help. Hopefully it will save you a trip downtown to buy a new garbage disposer!
