Discover Our Expert Garbage Disposal Repair Services
We specialize in repairing both continuous-feed and batch-feed garbage disposal units. Unsure of what type you have? No worries! Our experienced technicians in Aurora will handle it when they arrive!
We can fix common issues such as:
- Power failure in your garbage disposal:
Before contacting Mr. Appliance® of Aurora, make sure to check for tripped circuit breakers and press the Reset button on the unit's bottom. If the problem persists, the motor may be worn out, requiring professional replacement.
- Jams in your garbage disposal:
Foods high in fiber, cornhusks, avocado peels, bones, and utensils can cause jams. Under the motor, our experts can use a socket wrench to rotate the masher plate and clear the jam. Remember to never put your hand in the disposal.
Clogged garbage disposal drain:
If you're facing a clogged drain, turn off the power, disassemble the trap, and use a drain snake to clear the clog. Reassemble the unit and turn on the water to check if the clog has cleared. If you need assistance, contact Mr. Appliance® of Aurora for reliable repairs.
Excessive noise from your garbage disposal:
Foreign objects, loose mounting screws, broken flyweights, and worn lugs and blades can cause excessive noise. Timely servicing is essential to prevent water leaks into the motor and bearings, so reach out to our team soon.
Leaking garbage disposal:
Leaks are often due to a loose sink flange or a worn rubber gasket that may require replacement. In some cases, the unit may need to be replaced entirely. Contact us as soon as possible to prevent major damage.

When Should You Replace Your Garbage Disposal?
Is it time to replace your garbage disposal? Look out for these signs:
- It won't turn on, even when there's no power issue.
- The disposal is leaking water.
- You find yourself constantly resetting the appliance.
These symptoms suggest serious problems with the motor, wiring, or unit itself. While repairs might be possible, it's often more cost-effective to opt for a garbage disposal replacement instead. If the issue lies with the flyweights, blades, or flanges, replacing the entire unit might be the best solution. Contact us for assistance in making the right decision.
Frequently Asked Questions About Garbage Disposals
Replacing a garbage disposal - how difficult is it?
On a scale of 1 to 10, replacing a garbage disposal falls between 7 and 10. However, the level of difficulty largely depends on your handy skills. Garbage disposals have multiple parts and plumbing connections, so it is often 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 the blade. While it is possible to purchase a replacement blade plate (shredding plate), the cost of this part is usually 25% to 30% of a new garbage disposal. Additionally, some units may not even allow blade replacement. It is more cost-effective to replace the entire unit.
