Garbage Disposal Repairs

Garbage disposals will eventually break down. While these devices are engineered to last a long time while operating under some seriously heavy loads, they face their fair share of hazards and can eventually break down if not properly cared for. Here at Waldrop Plumbing – Heating – Air, we know garbage disposals inside and out and can quickly diagnose and repair a wide variety of issues.

We fix all types of garbage disposal problems, including:

  • Food waste overflow
  • Rotors that aren’t spinning
  • Strange smells
  • Extremely loud operation
  • Strange noises
  • The disposal won’t turn on

We service all makes and models of garbage disposals, meaning we can help you with whatever problem you’re experiencing, no matter the age of your system.

Frequently Asked Questions


There is one major rule to keep in mind for your garbage disposal: no grease, oil, fats, or similarly gooey substances. These things can often pass easily into your garbage disposal and then harden rapidly into a mess you will never quite clear out. Even if these substances do make it through your disposal, in the colder months of Greer, there’s a good chance these substances hit cold pipes further in and harden into clogged drains, affecting more than just your disposal. For similar reasons, avoid using your garbage disposal on food items that expand, like rice.


While we recommend against most garbage disposal DIY repairs, you can try running hot water, enzymatic cleaners, or vinegar and baking soda through your garbage disposal to get the gunk out. Make sure you reset it if you tripped the internal breaker by pushing the small button on the underside of your garbage disposal. If this isn’t enough, it’s time to call in the pros for proper garbage disposal repair.


Many dishwashers drain through the disposal of the adjacent sink, meaning that a blockage in your disposal will be a blockage for your dishwasher. For similar reasons, if you have a blockage past your sink and continue to run the sink, water can end up in your dishwasher—especially if you try to plunge it or otherwise add pressure.


Make sure you always run your disposal with cold water during the grinding process. Hot water can have negative effects if you use it at this point, and if you need it to melt grease, you’re already doing something wrong. For cleaning, on the other hand, use vinegar and baking soda and flush with hot or even boiling water.


Any experienced plumber will almost always recommend against liquid plumbing products because the effects they can have on your plumbing will be unpredictable at best. Liquid plumbing also does nothing to resolve the root cause of your clog while potentially pushing you closer to needing a full replacement of drains, pipes, etc. If you’re going to use anything, stick to safer enzymatic products.
