Signs It’s Time for a Garbage Disposal Replacement

In most cases, a garbage disposal can be back in working order with a few minor repairs. Sometimes the best course of action is to replace your garbage disposal entirely. There are some clear signs it may be time for a garbage disposal replacement.

The Disposal Clogs Repeatedly

If your garbage disposal frequently clogs, it can mean:

  • The blades are dull. When the blades wear out, food will not break down as efficiently and clog the drain.
  • Your garbage disposal is too small for your needs. It may be beneficial to look into a bigger model that can handle your demands.

You Need to Press the Reset Button Often

The reset button restores power after the motor overloads and resets the circuit breaker. If you constantly press this button, it may mean the motor on your disposal is weak and needs a replacement.

Food Takes a Long Time to Grind

If you send the same amount of food down the disposal but the grind time is longer, it might be time to replace it. The blades may be dull, or the motor could be too weak to function correctly.

The Bottom of the Unit Leaks

Leaking from the bottom of the garbage disposal can mean there is a crack in the unit. These cracks occur naturally over time, and they require a new garbage disposal installation.

Your Garbage Disposal Doesn’t Turn On

If you hear a humming noise, but the disposal doesn’t turn on, you may have a dead motor. In many cases, when the motor fails you need to replace the entire garbage disposal.
