A garbage disposal makes kitchen cleanup much simpler and easier. Most people use theirs frequently, whether rinsing off plates or disposing of vegetable peelings, but few pay much attention to the disposal. When it stops working, then, it can be quite a surprise. At America’s Appliance Repair, we are here to help.

Can I Fix It Myself?
Sometimes, depending on the nature of the problem. Before attempting to fix your garbage disposal, remember the cardinal rule: never stick your hand inside. If the disposal should suddenly start working, your hand could easily be shredded.
Check for such obvious issues as an unplugged disposal or a leaking hose underneath the sink. Try using a broom handle or sink auger to clear clogs. If these simple fixes do not work, though, call in a professional. Garbage disposals mix electricity, water, and extremely sharp spinning blades, so attempting complex repairs on your own could be disastrous.
