Prevent Unwanted Garbage Disposal Issues with a Sink Strainer

Having a garbage disposal is a major convenience when cooking and cleaning up after enjoying a nice meal. If your disposal is backed up, your sink can easily fill up with water and cause you to have a hard time in the kitchen. If you are experiencing problems with your garbage disposal, contact Joe the Plumber immediately.

Although the garbage disposal is a simple machine, the motor does circulate and rotate a set of blades inside an enclosure underneath the sink. Food and waste material that is placed in the sink drain is ground and sometimes that is where the problems come about. It is recommended to use a sink strainer so all the food doesn't fall into your drain causing unwanted problems that could cost you in the future.

Replacing Your Broken Garbage Disposals

Check the unit to see if it has overheated. Sometimes the garbage disposal may break due to overfilling or overusing it. You can look under the garbage disposal for a reset button. Attempt to reset the disposal and if nothing happens, then check the circuit breaker for the disposal in the circuit box. When the disposal hums but does not grind the waste material, it may be jammed. Hire an expert to fix the problem, don't risk getting hurt.
