Plumber Las Vegas NV specializes in the installation and repair of your garbage disposal at an affordable price. Whether you need a new installation or are in need of repairs, we have you covered!
Unit Won’t Turn On
There are a few steps you can take to test your garbage disposal before calling a plumber. Flip the switch to off and ensure that it is plugged in, that the breaker/fuse is on, and that the outlets “reset” button hasn’t been accidentally pushed in. Turn the disposal on to see if it works. If none of those works, you may need to replace or repair the unit, as it probably burnt out.
If your disposal makes a humming noise when you turn it on, it may be something jamming the blades. If the blades are jammed, the disposal may not come on at all. You may have to turn the disposal off at the breaker, put gloves on, and remove what has the blades jammed. You can help prevent this by not pouring oils, eggshells, fruit pits, large bones, and non-food down the disposal.
Garbage disposals should work very quickly and be able to grind up food and drain in a matter of mere seconds. If it seems like it is taking long to grind down food, it could be a matter of dull blades, but there may also be a clog in the pipes further down. In this case, you will need to call a plumber to sharpen or replace the blades.

There are many ways to freshen your garbage disposal between store-bought products and natural remedies; there is plenty to try. You can try lemon or lime wedges into your disposal with ice and try running cold water for 30 seconds. Adding some baking soda and vinegar is great for simple clogs and odors as well. If, after these, there is still smells, it’s time for a professional to come disassemble the unit.
Metal on metal noises can have two main causes, either the disposal has something stuck in it or parts are moving incorrectly. If nothing is stuck in the disposal and noise persists, it may be time for a tune-up. The plumber can do this tune-up or decide if it needs to be replaced entirely.
Garbage disposals have times where they may leak, and this can be as simple as a loose seal, which is a simple fix. Disposal leaks usually mean the O ring needs replaced or certain parts need to be tightened. Everything depends on where the leak is located if it is the sink flange or something else it can be costly. In this case, it may be better to replace it.

Garbage Disposal Replace vs. Repair
Garbage disposal repairs can be relatively simple, but it is always better to call in a professional. If something goes wrong with your garbage disposal, you don’t want to risk making it worse or even beyond repair. As long as you take care of your disposal properly and installed by a professional, garbage disposals are very durable pieces of equipment. With Plumber Las Vegas NV, we can quickly come to assess the repair and get it done right!
Sometimes if your garbage disposal is beyond repair or it has just gotten out of date, it may be best just to replace your garbage disposal. It may be tempting to try and replace it yourself, but a plumber is the way to go. A few extra dollars can ensure it is done correctly, preventing further malfunctions. If you turn your disposal on and it gurgles then falls silent, it’s definitely time for a replacement.

Pricing and Professionals
Get It Right
Garbage Disposal Options
There can be many factors that go into the cost of both replacing and repairing garbage disposals. On average, you will likely spend $185 to $380, but it can be as high as $600. Generally speaking, with garbage disposals, you really get what you pay for. A lower-cost model may not last as long, require more water, clog easily, and make more noise. On the other hand, a repair can be about $250, but your plumber will guide you in what’s best.
Professional Vs. Do It Yourself
There are many websites and videos you can watch that make garbage disposal repairs and installations look easy, but it is best to leave it to the professionals. Whether it’s a repair or new installation, you can find what you need at a hardware store, but its a lot of work. Not only are you buying specific tools for the job that you may never use again, but you’re preparing to spend possibly hours under your sink. It is always best to leave it to the pros!
