Garbage Disposal Repair

Antigo Garbage Disposal Service

Garbage Disposals in Antigo

The leftovers are past their usefulness. You don't want to deal with them stinking up your garbage until the time comes to take it out. After a moment of debate, you dump the plate down the sink and into the mouth of the garbage disposal. After rinsing off the flatware, you go to flip it on. Nothing happens.

Most people in Antigo don’t realize how much they use their garbage disposal until they no longer have one. Often placed out of sight and mind, these small appliances grind up food waste. In doing so, they allow table scraps to be washed away with the sewage. They are a convenience that is a staple in most modern kitchens. But, like all appliances, garbage disposals have a finite lifespan. The blades dull. Eventually, (like in the imagined scenario above) the motor fails.

When those things happen, it’s time to give the plumbing professionals at Jerome Filbrandt Plumbing and Heating, Inc. a call. In business since 1921, we’ve been helping people install and maintain their garbage disposals for over 103 years.

Give (715) 623-5379 a call to schedule garbage disposal repair or replacement in Antigo.

Fixing the Most Common Garbage Disposal Issues

As mentioned above, garbage disposals wear down through regular use. In doing so, they become prone to breakdown. Fortunately, our plumbers are equipped to handle almost any type of garbage disposal repair. Not sure how to tell if your unit needs some TLC? Keep your eyes and ears peeled for:

  • Grinding Issues: Garbage disposals are designed to mince anything dropped into them, including bones and vegetables. If your unit isn’t chopping properly, blunt blades are usually to blame. Sometimes, however, the motor’s power source is reaching a critical power point. If you notice stuff coming out the same as it went in, it’s time to schedule an appointment for garbage disposal repair in Antigo.
  • Loud or Weird Noises: A garbage disposal makes a lot of noise during operation, but it should never be jarring or loud. If the volume of the motor suddenly shoots up—or you hear abnormal noises—something’s probably wrong with the unit. For your safety, cease use of the appliance and give our Antigo plumbers a call at (715) 623-5379. We stock many parts needed for common replacements and can turn around most fixes in one day.
  • Intermittent Shutoffs: Garbage disposals come with automatic shutoffs. These are meant to ensure the unit operates safely. Sometimes, however, the sensors and switches powering this feature can malfunction. This leads to the unit shutting off at strange intervals. The best way to remedy this is to contact us and book an appointment for garbage disposal service.
  • Disposal Leaks: You open your cupboard and are greeted with the smell of mildew or rotten food. Looking up, you see your garbage disposal is to blame. Fortunately, repairing this problem isn’t always expensive. Sometimes a worn out valve or washer is to blame. Other times, cracked pipes produce undesired leaks and must be repaired. Regardless of the cause of your garbage disposal leak in Antigo, our plumbers are here to help.
  • Water That Doesn't Drain: If water isn’t draining from your garbage disposal, there’s likely a faulty valve. Until the worn out part is replaced, you won’t be able to use the unit. That’s why you should call a professional plumber as soon as possible. For readers who call Antigo or Elcho home, we suggest contacting Jerome Filbrandt Plumbing and Heating first.

Garbage Disposal Care Tips

Using the garbage disposal as intended and following the instructions lessens the need for repair. While certain things vary from model to model, the following tips always apply:

  • Watch Your Waste: Though you can put a lot of things through a disposal, there are some limits. First, don’t overload the unit. Space out putting waste down the disposal to give the attached pipes time to drain. Also, avoid tossing grease, coffee grounds, egg shells, and peels down the drain. These items can damage the garbage disposal.
  • Keep It Fresh: You need to clean your garbage disposal regularly. Along with rinsing the unit, you should also throw some ice cubes down the drain to better scrub the blades.
    After that, put a few lemons down to lessen odors and remove stains.
  • Treat Bacteria: The mixing of foodstuffs a garbage disposal encounters leads to bacteria build-up. These health hazards can be difficult to remove. That’s where this pro tip comes in. Once a month, sprinkle some baking soda down the drain. Wait a minute or two for it to settle and then add vinegar. The chemical reaction that follows will sanitize the unit and clean the blades.
