Not sure what type of garbage disposal you have? No problem. Our experienced technicians at Mr. Appliance® of Asheville will know what to do when they arrive at your home!
Common Issues We Fix:
- The garbage disposal is not working—no power.
Before contacting us, check for tripped circuit breakers and press the Reset button on your unit. If the problem persists, it's likely the motor is worn out and the entire unit may need to be replaced. (More details below.)
The garbage disposal is jammed.
High-fiber foods, cornhusks, avocado peels, bones, and utensils can cause jams. Use a socket wrench to rotate the masher plate under the motor and attempt to clear the jam. Remember, never put your hand in the disposal.
The garbage disposal drain is clogged.
Turn off the power, disassemble the trap, and use a drain snake to clear the clog. After reassembly, turn on the water to check if the clog is gone. Need assistance? Contact Mr. Appliance for garbage disposal repairs.
The garbage disposal is making excessive noise.
Excessive noise is often caused by foreign objects, loose screws, broken flyweights, and worn lugs and blades. It's important to have your unit serviced soon to prevent water leakage into the motor and bearings.
The garbage disposal is leaking.
Leaks may indicate a loose sink flange or a worn rubber gasket. Sometimes, replacing the unit is necessary. The sooner you reach out to us, the better we can prevent major damage.

When to Replace Your Garbage Disposal: Key Indications
- It won't turn on, even though there's no power problem.
- The disposal is leaking water.
- The appliance requires frequent resets.
These symptoms suggest serious problems with the motor, wiring, or the unit itself. While some issues can be fixed with repairs, it is often more cost-effective to opt for garbage disposal replacement services. If the malfunction is due to flyweights, blades, or flanges, replacing the unit may be the better decision. Consult Mr. Appliance® of Asheville for assistance in evaluating your options.
Frequently Asked Questions
How difficult is it to replace a garbage disposal?
On a DIY scale of 1 to 10, replacing a garbage disposal falls between 7 and 10. However, the difficulty level also depends on your level of handy skills. Garbage disposals have multiple components and plumbing connections, so it is generally recommended to hire a licensed professional for this job.
Is it worth replacing the blade in a garbage disposal?
No, we do not recommend replacing just the blade. While it is possible to purchase a replacement blade plate (shredding plate), it typically costs around 25% to 30% of the price of a new garbage disposal. Additionally, not all units allow for the replacement of this part. Therefore, it is more cost-effective to replace the whole unit.
