Garbage Disposal Repair

Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric, Inc. knows there are subtle signs your garbage disposal may not be performing well. Just because it turns on and works may not mean all is well. Most manufacturers design garbage disposals to keep your sink free and clean from things like food and waste items removed before cooking. After grinding, water in the sink will flow free and drain normally. If water drains slow, or continues to back up even after using the disposal, than that could mean that the teeth on the disposal have dulled and are not chopping properly. Larger pieces may clog pipes.

If you hear a loud grinding or rattling noise when the disposal is running parts may need to be checked for damage. These could be loose, broken or have fallen off and are trapped under the blades. In any event, if you are wondering if something is wrong, now is the time to call The Action Team. A delay would only mean possible replacement if indeed something is not working right.

Garbage Disposal Installation Services

Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric, Inc. can also replace or upgrade your garbage disposal. Larger families, more meals prepared in the summer, increased entertaining and the like all mean your garbage disposal is getting increased use. Could be it needs more horsepower, or a better or larger model is the best way to go. Then the question of proper installation of a food waste disposer done in the kitchen of your home or office, is the top consideration. Here are several more items to think about before you call us:

  • Power: A ½ horsepower disposal works well grinding down smaller pieces of food, but if food is jamming up during use, or taking too much time to drain, consider a ¾-1 horsepower unit. Denser foods need more power to work and getting a higher horsepower appliance can make quick work every time.
  • Longevity: Stainless steel parts are best. They resist corrosion and last much longer without rust that galvanized steel or plastic.
  • Size: Size does matter. Each sink has a recommended garbage disposal size to avoid additional problems during operation. Vibrating countertops and improper draining to fit existing plumbing are not long term decisions. Just makesure the disposal is the appropriate size for your sink.
  • Accessories: Actions recommends disposal units that are complete for purchase. There are models out there which require additional purchases like power cords, covers and gaskets or cranking wrenchs. Saving you a trip back and making the correct purchase for the model purchased doesn’t need to be a hassle.
  • Check out all the latest technology out there is disposers and find one that truly meets the need you have in each location

Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric, Inc. will install your new disposal in 1-2 hours, and can come back any time for service issues that may arise. Our qualified licensed and insured professionals are only a phone call away.

Maintenance Tips For A Garbage Disposal

  • Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric, Inc. wants to make sure your garbage disposal runs right all the time. Reliable running life means you must focus on upkeep to avoid repair or replacement.
  • A garbage disposal is not a trash can
  • Do not grind down rice, noodles, or any other foods that can expand before cooking
  • Never ever throw metals, plastics, or bones into the disposal
  • Feed pieces into the disposal slowly and do not overload
  • Keep the disposal teeth well lubricated by running cold water before, during, and after its use
  • If the disposal motor isn’t turning on, it may simply be jammed
  • Use the crancking or alan wrench to crank the disposal manually to clear the jam and then hit the reset button on the motor
  • Clean the disposal by running water though the unit with soapy water or grinding small peels of citru fruits. Citric acid cleans and smells great
