How Do Garbage Disposals Work? What Are Some Common Disposal Problems?

Garbage disposals are designed to break down debris from food and other organic materials before they hurt your plumbing system. Small blades encased inside of the disposal carve up debris until the pieces are much smaller, helping with drainage. Most garbage disposals are energy-efficient fixtures, needing less water and electricity to function.

If a malfunction appears, it’s usually because of an electrical issue or improper use. The most important thing to know about your garbage disposal is to learn what it’s capable of breaking down. Geisel Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, Inc. technicians give your disposal a full assessment of the problem to ensure a long-term solution.

1. Your Disposal Isn’t Starting

If your disposal won’t start, try hitting the reset button located on the unit. If nothing happens, it’s usually because of electrical problem or because the blades can’t move. Wiring can be hazardous to inspect and repair, so we suggest leaving garbage disposal repair to professional technicians.

2. The Blades Aren’t Moving Even Though the Motor Is

If you hear the disposal but the blades aren’t actually spinning, it could be an electrical error, damage to the motor, or another malfunction affecting the blades. Our repair technicians will make sure the disposal is off before find the root cause.

Sometimes, something like old food gets stuck inside the disposal, catching the blades and preventing rotation. A disposal’s motor can spin the blades at speeds capable of injury, so never put your hand into the disposal if you aren’t certain it’s turned off and unplugged.

3. Leaks

A consistent leak can be a telltale sign your disposal may be damaged. As food waste solidifies and hardens, it can crack or otherwise damage internal components and potentially spring a leak. Unexplained water damage can also help you figure out there’s something wrong with the disposal. If you find mold or mildew close to drain, the garbage disposal may be to blame.

The Do's and Don'ts of What Goes in Your Garbage Disposal

Keeping track of what’s appropriate to put in your garbage disposal can be frustrating. Here are some reminders:


Break pieces of food down as small as possible to make them easier to grind up.

Don’t throw in fibrous items like vegetable skins, which can clog the blades of your disposal.



The majority of liquids are okay, but you should never pour in cooking oil and grease, which can solidify and ruin internal components.

Coffee grounds and eggshells can also cause problems, so avoid scraping them into your garbage disposal.
