Garbage Disposal Tips
If your disposal is not working, there are a few things you can check before calling a plumber. First, check the breaker box and make sure the breaker is not tripped. Second, on most newer disposals there is a crank and reset button on the bottom. Try turning the crank to see if that will unlock the blades, then push the red reset button. If the disposal still won’t turn on, it might be time to replace it. We will install any disposal you buy or we can provide one for you. We recommend the Badger or InSinkErator series of disposals.
Bonus Tip: If you have a bad smell coming from the disposal try grinding up a 1/4 lemon wedge and running cold water through the sink for five minutes.
What Not to Put in a Garbage Disposal
Though it may be easy to simply rinse your leftover food off into your drain, it can have a lasting impact on your garbage disposal. Steer clear of putting any of the following down your disposal.
- Egg shells
- Potato peels
- Banana skins
- Coffee grounds
- Any non-food material
