We keep our trucks fully stocked, so we can fix your garbage disposal right then and there—no need to schedule another appointment.
You’ll always know the price of your garbage disposal repair before any work begins.
We’re here ’til midnight and available on weekends, too.
A garbage disposal might be small and tucked away under your sink, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it proper attention now and again.
Here are some of the most common signs that your garbage disposal needs professional repairs — if any of these things sound familiar, just pick up the phone and give Morris-Jenkins a call, and we’ll take care of the rest.
It Doesn’t Work!
You flip the switch and nothing happens. You run some hot water for a little bit, peek down the sink opening to see if there’s anything in the way, flip the switch again, and are met with the sound of silence. If you’re a serious troubleshooter, perhaps you even go to check the electric panel to make sure it’s not a breaker issue.
If your garbage disposal simply won’t come on, all signs may point to a burnt-out motor.
Pew, That Stinks!
If your garbage disposal is starting to smell like actual garbage, it probably isn’t chopping up food scraps as well as it should be.
When this happens, the larger scraps of food get stuck in the machine or drain pipe and start to rot, causing that unpleasant smell. You might feel tempted to reach down into the disposal and feel for scraps, but don’t! It’s best to have a professional come to your Huntersville home to do the job safely and correctly.
What’s That Sound?
Every garbage disposal likes to sing to its own tune, so if yours suddenly starts to sound like a dying duck, you probably have a problem that’s meant for the professionals. Strange noises are often caused by bent, jammed, or misaligned blades.
Clogs or Leaks Abound
If your disposal keeps getting clogged or you notice leaking under your sink, it’s likely an issue with the pipes or the connection with your sink. One of our plumbers can crawl under there to investigate the problem.
