Garbage Disposal Repair in Sacramento

Published on November 18, 2013

You May Just Need to Have Your Blades Sharpened

While many people think that they will need to replace their garbage disposal if they have any sort of problem, there are actually many issues that can be addressed with fairly simple repairs.

If your unit is draining slowly or water is backing up into the sink, then it is probably jammed. Turn the power off at the circuit breaker and shine a flashlight into the disposal to see if you can locate the obstruction. You may just have a spoon, knife or fork that accidentally when down the unit.

If it seems to take longer than normal for your disposal to chop up material, the blades may simply be dull. Put some ice cubes into the unit and turn it on. If this doesn’t work, then you may need a professional to sharpen the blades.

Call Boyd Plumbing today if you ever have any issues with your garbage disposal.
