What Can Cause Your Garbage Disposal to Stop Working?

There are innumerable things that can cause your garbage disposal to jam or clog, but we can narrow it down to a few particular causes that our plumbers consider to be the most common. If you’re experiencing any of the following issues with your plumbing, call us for service immediately:

  • Excess Food Remnants: The leftovers from your holiday dinner may sit well in your stomach, but they won’t settle well in your garbage disposal. While your garbage disposal can handle and chop up smaller pieces of food, anything from large pieces of produce to chicken bones can be sources of clogs. Discard chicken bones in your regular garbage and cut pieces of food before throwing down the garbage disposal instead.
  • Failed Electrical Connections: Sometimes what’s causing your garbage disposal to stop working may not even be due to a jam or clog. Failed electrical connections are also a common cause for drain clog failure. Make sure to contact a professional to have electrical connections checked to see if any sort of electrical work will be needed to establish a stronger connection.
  • Jammed Grinder: Food isn’t the only thing that will wind up clogging your garbage disposal. Sometimes physical objects do land in your garbage disposal, which can lead to a jammed grinder. While it is generally one of the most common issues faced by garbage disposals, it’s important to get the grinder fixed as it’s one of the core components that helps material pass through the disposal.
