Garbage Disposal 101

Let’s talk for just a second about the role of your disposal and why these appliances stop working. A garbage disposal is designed with a motor between .05 horsepower and 1+ horsepower. Obviously, more horsepower means a greater ability to grind up food. The motor powers the propeller or blades, grinds up the food waste placed in the kitchen sink, and pushes it through the pipes away from your house into the sewer system.

Many times when a disposal stops working it is due to human error or operator misuse. If the disposal was installed incorrectly, the wiring may have become corroded or loosened. Sometimes people put too much food into the unit, making it likely that the propeller stopped working because food particles are caught in the blades. There may also be foreign objects like coins or kitchen trash stuck in the blades. In the worst case scenario, the motor may have stopped running because the appliance is simply old and on its last leg.
