Before you call Rich’s Appliance Repair, lets make sure you have checked the basics:
Garbage Disposal has a foul or sour smell
If you notice a foul or sour smell coming from your disposal never put chemical drain cleaners down your disposal. The chemicals in common household drain cleaners can damage parts of the disposal such as plastic tubes or rubber seals. To get rid of the foul odor, cut a lemon in half and run one half down the garbage disposal, while running cold water. The acidity from the lemon will remove any built up residue inside the disposal, while also providing a lemony fresh scent. As part of proper maintenance, every few months try and run egg shells, ice cubes, or a half a lemon down the garbage disposal and let it run for a minute or so, while running the water, this will clear out any miscellaneous food parts or built up residue in your disposal.
Garbage disposal does not work
If your garbage disposal does not hum or make any noise at all, it’s likely it’s not receiving any power. Check the garbage disposal for a reset button on its underside. If your disposal is clogged or jammed, often it will shut down completely to keep from burning out the motor. If this does not fix the issue, it’s best to keep the garbage disposal turned off until Rich, or one of his technicians, can come to investigate the issue.
