Garbage Disposal Services in the Twin Cities

hands holding screwdriver repairing garbage disposal under sink | genz ryan plumbingA garbage disposal is the most convenient way to deal with messy food scraps and keep your kitchen clean. If you find your current disposal isn’t getting the job done, it’s time to replace it with a new one.

Replacing or installing a new garbage disposal can be a hassle, as it involves the uncomfortable, confined workspace under your sink. You’ll also need to be comfortable with plumbing and electrical, as it involves both. For this reason, we strongly recommend calling a pro to get the job done.

At Genz-Ryan, we’ve been in the business of helping Minnesota homeowners since 1950. We offer a variety of InSinkErator® garbage disposals to meet your individual needs, or we can install whatever garbage disposal you provide us.

For garbage disposal services, contact our team by either calling (612) 223-6158 or contacting us online.

The Benefits of a Garbage Disposal

Households benefit from having a garbage disposal. These benefits include:

  • Catches food particles from dirty dishes
  • Minces particles that would otherwise clog your drain
  • Reduces odors in your kitchen
  • Provides drainage for a dishwasher
  • More sanitary home conditions
  • Less garbage in your home means fewer trips to the garbage can
  • More environmentally friendly than adding food scraps to a landfill

Garbage Disposal Repair

Your garbage disposal is effective at getting rid of a lot of scraps, but if you put the wrong items down there, it can lead to costly repairs.

Store-bought chemical cleaners might seem like an excellent solution to a drain clog, but these chemicals will damage your pipes and garbage disposal.

Common Causes for Garbage Disposal Breaks

Garbage disposals provide a reliable solution for disposing of food waste, but over time, they can malfunction, jam, or break down completely.

Common causes of garbage disposal breakdowns include:

  • Disposal overload: Putting too much food down the disposal at once can cause the motor to overheat and the system will shut off.
  • Disposing of the wrong foods: Hard and fibrous foods can lead to blade damage. Avoid putting fruit pits, bones, and vegetable peels down your disposal.
  • Blade wear and tear: Disposal blades will become dull over time, resulting in a loud or vibrating disposal.
  • Lack of maintenance: Regular maintenance and cleaning can help prevent clogs, which is one of the main causes of garbage disposal malfunction.
  • Electrical issues: A tripped circuit breaker or damaged wiring means your disposal won’t have power.
  • Damaged parts: If the motor, impellers, or flywheel are damaged, your disposal may act strangely or stop working altogether.
