The garbage disposal may not have clinched your decision to buy your home, but by now you are not only used to it; you rely on it regularly to remove unwanted food waste from your sink. If your current garbage disposal is broken or has stopped working properly you want a repair company that will help you choose the perfect replacement and then install it for you as soon as possible.

In the greater Washington D.C. area, that company is All-Pro Appliance Repair. Our technicians have been working on garbage disposals for years and can provide you with quick, expert care that will get your disposal back in working order in no time.

Replacing Your Garbage Disposal

Before you take the step to replace your current garbage disposal, first ask yourself a few questions about its operation to determine if you do in fact need a new one. Here are a few things to check before calling a professional in for replacement services.

  • Does It Turn On? – If it doesn’t turn on and you’ve tried the reset switch to no avail, now is the time to call for assistance. It may still only be an electrical wire problem – a bad terminal block or a crossed wire somewhere – but only a professional can tell.
  • Jammed – If the garbage disposal locked up and won’t come unlocked despite removing the jam and repeatedly resetting it, you may have a blown bearing or the motor might have seized up completely. If either of these happens, most often it is less expensive to just replace the device entirely instead of trying to repair it. Again, it is best to have a professional inspect it.
  • Age and Poor Operation – If your garbage disposal simply doesn’t do a very good job any longer, lets bits of solid food through or makes loud, disturbing sounds, you may need a new one. A professional can inspect and help you determine the effectiveness of your current disposal and whether a new model will serve you better.

A well maintained garbage disposal can work for years without any problems, but even a new device can need replacement if it is mistreated, the wrong foods are placed in it or there is a mechanical malfunction. If you suspect any of these things may have happened, call us as soon as possible to have it inspected.
