Repairing the Garbage Disposal
Your garbage disposal is equipped with some things that may sometimes help with self-repair. If your disposal stops altogether, you could try the reset button in case the power supply was interrupted and you just need a restart. Sometimes, you can unplug the unit and clean it out to get it working again. Foul smells in addition to function problems could mean a clog. Try vinegar and baking soda to help with the smell and clean up sludge. Always give your disposal a good rinse after every use, too.
When all else fails, call a professional to repair the garbage disposal. An expert knows how to find that item that’s stopping the blades, or that electrical problem that’s causing malfunctions. If necessary, a professional can install a new one if your current disposal needs to be replaced.
