Common Garbage Disposal Repairs

Residents looking for garbage disposal services in O’Fallon, IL should contact BEL-O. Here are some common repairs that you may need:

Clogged Drain

Food and other waste may be clogging the drain trap. If you dispose of a large amount of food waste at once, it can clog the drain and needs to be removed.

Broken Blades

Broken or loose blades can cause irritating noises and may not chop food down into small enough pieces. Replacing broken blades with new ones will allow your disposal to cut through waste better.

Leaking Disposal

If your garbage disposal is leaking water, it could be from faulty drain lines or a busted seal inside the unit. A professional will locate the leak and repair it.

No Power

If your garbage disposal has no power, it either blew a circuit or could be unplugged. Once plugged in, the unit will need to be reset.


If you overwork and overload your garbage disposal too often, it can become easily jammed. Our team will be able to look inside to see what is causing this blockage in your kitchen sink.

Signs Your Garbage Disposal Needs to Be Replaced

Garbage disposals typically last about 10 years. Here are common reasons to replace your garbage disposal. 

Older Unit

If the unit is more than 10 years old, it will break down and need more and more repairs over time. Sometimes it is more cost-effective to replace your disposal with a brand new one.

Constantly Resetting

The reset button restores electrical power after the motor has been overloaded and trips the circuit breaker. If you are frequently hitting the reset button, that means the unit is getting weaker and will need to be replaced soon.

Frequent Clogs

If the garbage disposal has constant clogging, the blades may be dull. The clogs could also mean you should replace your current unit with a larger one.

Excessive Leaking

Persistent leaking could mean there are cracks on the inside of the unit. The only way to fix the cracks is to replace the whole unit.

Loud Noises

A dead motor can cause loud humming sounds to emerge from the unit. That means it is receiving electrical power but can not grind up food particles. A new system should be installed to replace the ineffective one.

Long Grind Time

If you notice you are putting the same amount of food into the unit, but it starts to take longer and longer to grind, it may be time to install a new unit.
