Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement in Reading

25 Plumbing_Banner

A garbage disposal is a tool that many families cannot imagine living without. If you do not have a garbage disposal or if your current disposal is not working properly, you need to call a certified plumber. Here at Essig Plumbing and Heating, we have seen a variety of garbage disposal problems including:

  • Jammed Garbage Disposals
  • A Humming Garbage Disposal
  • Clogged Garbage Disposal
  • No Power
  • Leaking
  • Loud noises
  • Shaking or wiggling

Most of these garbage disposal complications are because of putting things down the garbage disposal that cause damage. However, leaks, noise and movement can be due to improper installation.


How Are Garbage Disposal’s Diagnosed?

With over 70 years of experience behind us, we are able to diagnose and inspect your garbage disposal using our training. Our plumbers are experts on the appliances they work on and will make sure that the complications you are having are addressed right the first time. We will:

  • Test your garbage disposal
  • Check the connections
  • Check electrical connections
  • Inspect the inside of the garbage disposal
  • Determine if the reset button was tripped
  • Locate any object jammed in the grinder plates

Jams and humming disposal are typically caused by a foreign object stuck in the grinder. We will use our tools to manually move the grinder plates to free the item and check to make sure the reset button is depressed. Leaks and moving of the disposal require replacement gaskets and tightening or replacing bolts that hold the disposal into place. If your disposal is getting no power, and the circuit is fine, it may be time for a new disposal.


What Are The Benefits Of A Garbage Disposal?

Garbage disposals help keep your food waste from rotting in the garbage or clogging up your lines. They grind your waste up and flush them down the drain out to your sewer system. A garbage disposal can reduce your garbage output, make meal cleanup easy and help keep your home clean.
