Every appliance is always going to need to be serviced regularly. There is nothing worse than your kitchen disposal breaking down on you, the kitchen sink backs up, the dishwasher won’t clean your dishes because the disposal won’t work to remove the food and particles from your drain, the whole day becomes a mess. Able Appliance provides you with reliable in-home garbage disposal repair services to the Kansas City area, including Overland Park, Olathe, all of Johnson County and more.
There are some general rules when using a garbage disposal in your sink to keep it running and free from needing garbage disposal repair. Some simple dos and don’ts when it comes to running your disposal include:
· DO! –
o Run cold water before you turn on the disposal. Continue running the cold water while grinding food.
o Keep the water running for around 10-15 seconds after turning the disposal off.
o TURN OFF THE POWER AT THE SOURCE if you ever need to work on or remove something from the disposal. If this means getting under the sink and unplugging the unit from the wall – do it!
· DON’T! –
o Pour fats, oils, or grease (FOG) down any of your drains – this can clog pipes and lead to raw sewage overflows.
o Use hot water when running your garbage disposal.
o NEVER grind any of these: inorganic material (glass, plastic, paper, etc.), stringy and starchy vegetables, hard stuff (large bones, pits, seeds, etc.), excess amounts of anything (feed items in slowly).
