Garbage Disposal Repair, Installation and Replacement

Trusted Garbage Disposal Repairs Since 1950

Christianson Air Conditioning and Plumbing is experienced in providing high-quality garbage disposal services in the local area. Our technicians are not only trained in mechanical expertise. They’re knowledgeable, courteous, and willing to address any questions or concerns you may have.


Repair over Garbage Disposal Replacement

When your garbage disposal isn’t working up to par, chances are it can be repaired. Our professional technicians can unclog the unit, replace a seal, or repair blades that have jammed. Call us sooner than later when trouble arises—you may avoid more costly repairs later, and your disposal may last longer.

Motors, blades, and other parts eventually wear out. Eventually, the system will need to be replaced, but, with great service, it might last the 10 to 12 years a garbage disposal is typically expected to run. When the time comes, you can count on us for a dependable garbage disposal installation.


Common Garbage Disposal Problems

The issues you are most likely to come across include:

  • Complete breakdown: If the disposal doesn’t turn on, it may need to be reset. Tripped circuit breakers may also be the cause. If the motor has failed, we’ll replace the unit with a new model.
  • Jamming: Food and other disposed items can clump together and jam the disposal. Jams can often be cleared without any additional garbage disposal repair.
  • Noise: Abnormal whirring and clicking sounds are the most common. Sometimes a motor can be replaced, but it’s often just a screw that needs tightening. Blades, bearings, and lugs can become loose or worn; our team is trained and equipped to handle problems of any scope.
  • Humming without disposing: If the disposal only makes a humming noise when turned on, the pipe or flywheel may be clogged. We’re usually able to remove a blockage to get things working again.
  • Leaky disposal: A broken pipe or damage to the disposal may cause it to leak into the space under the sink. Water damage, mold, and other problems can result, but we’ll get to the root of the problem and fix, replace, and install your garbage disposal as needed.


Keeping Your Garbage Disposal in Good Shape

To reduce your chances of having to call a plumbing company, practice good habits such as:

  • Avoiding putting non-food items in the disposal.
  • Avoiding disposal of cooking oil or grease.
  • Adding only small items, as large pieces can cause a clog.
  • Cutting larger items into small pieces first.
  • Cleaning the blades with lemon or citrus peels.
  • Running cold water when the unit is on, and for 30 seconds after turning it off.
