Have you found water dripping or pooling underneath your sink? There are many things that can cause garbage disposals to leak, including a seal that needs to be replaced, a hole in the wall of the garbage disposal or an issue with the discharge drainpipe and the dishwasher connection.

If, when you flip the switch, the garbage disposal won’t turn on, your first step should be to make sure it’s plugged in. If not, plug it in and press the reset button. If this doesn’t work, make sure that a circuit breaker hasn’t been tripped. If all else fails, this could be the result of a damaged switch or a damaged garbage disposal.

If your dishwasher is moving slowly, then there is probably a blockage. One option is to use a mix of baking soda and vinegar to get the blockage out, but if this doesn’t work, it’s time to call in the professionals.

When something blocks the flywheel in your garbage disposal, there will be a low, humming sound, which means that you’ve got a jam on your hands. Fixing the jam will depend on the specific unit you have, and it’s typically best left up to the experts.

Because you are putting food into your garbage disposal, odors happen; however, if the odor sticks around no matter how many times you rinse, it could mean trouble. A permanently stinky garbage disposal indicates that the blades have gotten dull and the components in the grinding chamber have started to wear out.
