Sometimes disposers fill up with too much food and debris which could stop the disposer from working can be one of the first signs along with clogging noises. You can trust us to evaluate and fix malfunctioning garbage disposals and get your kitchen back up and running. We check during our evaluation that there are no obstructions or remove them. Remember that not plugging in the appliance is by far the most common source of problems. Make sure it is plugged in and not loose. Never use chemical drain cleaners with a garbage disposal. These chemicals rarely work, leaving you with a sinkhole of toxic chemicals that in addition to damaging the disposal, exposes your family to these chemicals.
