Garbage Disposal Repair Service in Dallas, TX

Garbage disposals provide a quick and easy way to dispose of food waste through the municipal sewer system, rather than with the kitchen refuse, where it could cause odors and pest problems. With a powerful motor and set of sharp impellers to grind even hard objects, a garbage disposal can be dangerous under certain circumstances, and if it breaks down, it is best to leave the repairs to a professional.

At Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer garbage disposal repair services throughout the Dallas area, as well as installation, replacement and maintenance services. Whether you have a jammed impeller, an electrical problem or a motor failure, we can diagnose the problem quickly and offer affordable solutions.

Common Garbage Disposal Problems in a Dallas Home

Garbage disposals are relatively simple, and there are only a few problems that commonly occur, including:

  • Overheating: If the garbage disposal is overfilled or certain materials like fibrous vegetables are inserted, the motor may overheat. Typically, this will trip a safety switch, but if resetting it does not help, there may be other problems.
  • Jamming: When the motor hums but the garbage disposal will not operate, the impellers are likely stuck. Removing a blockage can be dangerous, and is best left to a professional.
  • Leaks: More than likely a leak is caused by a bad seal between the sink and the disposal, though there may be damage to the disposal itself.
  • Electrical problems: If the breakers or safety switch trip often, there may be a problem with the impellers or the motor. Have a professional inspect the disposal.
  • Motor failure: If the disposal will not operate, and makes no noise at all, the motor may have failed. Check the breakers and the reset switch before calling a professional.

If you have any of these problems, and they cannot be corrected by reseting the breakers or the safety switch, contact our team at Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning for help.
