We Fix Leaking, Broken and Clogged Units
There are many things you can do to solve simple problems. We are happy to help in any situation, but if you like saving money and self-reliance, we have some simple tips for you. If your disposal is clogged, jammed or failing to run, try these easy steps before contacting our plumbers:
- Clean the Blades - Running ice through the appliance will sharpen and clean the blades. Grinding lemons can prevent bacteria and mold growth. Freezing vinegar cubes and grinding them is also a good way to combat odors.
- Reset the Circuit - If it seems the device won’t power, look for a reset switch. It fixes 90 percent of cases. Blown fuses and flipped circuit breakers are other common culprits.
- Hand Crank - Most units have an access point underneath that enables you to hand crank the gears in the case of jams. Make sure to use the appropriate tool. Never stick your bare hand into the device!
