    Understanding How a Garbage Disposal Works

    We believe it’s important for homeowners to understand how garbage disposals work so you can troubleshoot any issues. It can also help you determine when to call a plumber for help. As you empty food waste into the sink, the impeller plate spins, chopping up the waste and sending it down the drain.
    There are two types of garbage disposal units in most homes: continuous feed units and batch feed units.

    Continuous Feed Disposals

    This type of disposal is the most common choice among homeowners. It is convenient, affordable, and comes in a variety of models. If you have a large family with a lot of food waste, continuous feed disposals are the best option. You turn on the switch to begin operating and feed the disposal until the waste is gone.

    Batch Feed Disposals

    Batch feed disposals are less common because they are not as convenient as continuous feed models. Using this option requires you to cover the drain before you turn it on and then feed the disposal in batches, waiting between each batch. These models are less affordable.

    Why a Garbage Disposal Stops Working

    When your garbage disposal stops working, a power issue, a clog, or the age of the unit could be factors that contribute to the failure. Since the appliance relies on electricity to work, it’s important to unplug your disposal before you start troubleshooting the issue. Here are a few common reasons your disposal could stop working.

    Poor Drainage

    Inefficient drainage systems are a major reason your garbage disposal is not working for you. Food waste can clog the drain; if it sits too long, it’s hard to break up. You can avoid this issue by emptying waste into smaller batches.

    Electrical Issues

    If your garbage disposal will not turn on, the first concern is a clog. However, an electrical issue can also cause this problem. Check if it’s plugged in, and then push the reset button. If the disposal still isn’t working, you may need to reset the circuit breaker.


    Garbage disposal leaks can happen at any time. They usually happen at the point where they connect to the bottom of the sink. Most disposals connect through a hose that leads to the dishwasher. Constant vibrations from the disposal can loosen the connections and cause a leak.


    Do you notice a humming noise from the disposal, but it will not grind when you flip the power switch? If so, the disposal may have a jam from a foreign object. This usually happens near the impeller or shredder ring.
    There are many reasons you may need a garbage disposal repair or new installation. Our licensed plumbers have the experience to inspect the issue and can get it working again for you.

    When To Install a New Garbage Disposal

    If your garbage disposal isn’t working, you may wonder whether you need a repair or replacement. The good news is that we can help you determine the best fit for your home. Clogging, jamming, and electrical issues are simple repairs that we can quickly handle for you. Older models may require a complete replacement if they keep breaking down. There are a few common signs that can help determine if you need a new garbage disposal installed.

    End of Lifespan

    If your disposal is more than 10-15 years old, chances are you may need a new one. Frequently maintained disposals will last a long time and will work well without any issues if you keep up with maintenance. Descaling, removing clogs, and flushing with cold water can help extend the lifespan.

    Strange Noises

    Garbage disposals do make some noise, but if you hear strange or loud noises, turn the unit off and use a flashlight to check for visible blockages. If you don’t see anything, call your plumber for help. Frequent strange noises could mean you need a new unit.

    Foul Odors

    Bad smells are not uncommon when you’re grinding up food waste. However, if you’re not getting rid of waste and you still notice foul odors, you may have trapped food particles in the unit. Persistent smells, even after cleaning, could mean it’s time to get a new disposal.

    What Our Clients in Maryland are Saying

    I was experiencing a plumbing emergency and discovered ACW Service, Inc. from searching online. The timing was perfect because my call was answered immediately and Brian was two minutes from my house; he was able to stop by and provide an estimate within minutes of receiving the call. The work was completed in an extremely timely manner, which prevented further damage from occurring. If you’re looking for a plumbing company with great customer service and quality work, you won’t be disappointed with Brian or Zach!

    Brian was a wonderful representative of the company. Upon reaching out to ACW, he made recommendations on what type of faucet we should get to replace our old one and where we could get it. He set us up for an appointment for Monday. While our particular sink situation didn't need immediate attention at first, it turned into a larger issue and necessitated a more immediate response. Brian was able to squeeze us in earlier than we had scheduled, which we greatly appreciated. He was prompt, professional, and installed our new faucet within the hour. We're even considering using them for a bathroom remodel in the future. Highly recommend working with this company if you're unsure on who to choose.
    Brian was amazing and came out late at night to help us diagnose our clogged septic line and returned first thing in the morning to snake the line for us and repaired some shotty plumbing work from a previous owner. Great work and very professional and punctual! Thanks Brian!
    Chris Glisson
    Amazing company! I called to have the toilet in my master bathroom replaced. ACW came out the next day and completed the job. Excellent customer service and the price was very competitive. We will definitely use them again for our plumbing needs.
    Wanda Jones
    Brian was responsive and very helpful in Guiding me on what kind of faucet to purchase. He arrived in time and did excellent work for a reasonable cost. I would definitely use him again for future plumbing needs.
    Shannon Kelley
    Very fast response to my inquiry. They were very thorough and professional with the assessment and repaired the problem same day. Would use them again and highly recommend their service.
    Vince Contreras
    ACW was fantastic to work with. They came out and gave me a quick and easy to comprehend assessment of what they believed was wrong and what the fix would be. Once I accepted the quote, the part was ordered (new water pressure valve) and installed with about 3 to 4 business days. They were extra careful to not cause major repair work to the drywall in my theater room which was where the valve was. I couldn't have been happier with the the change in water pressure in our home. Im extremely grateful for companies like ACW and would definitely recommend them for your home.

    Review of ACW Service Inc.

    Thanks to ACW I have water again and I can’t stop smiling! I called this morning and Brian was at my house before 10am. I have an old home with a small crawlspace and a copper pipe busted in an area that was inaccessible through the crawlspace. Brian, Zack and Ryan worked seamlessly together to locate and access the pipe. They devised an inconspicuous way to access the pipe through a hall closet floor, rather than ripping up wood flooring in the main area of my house. Just a couple of hours later, this extremely challenging job is finished, and I could not be happier with their job performance. All three young men were professional, knowledgeable and pleasant. Thank you ACW for your excellent plumbing services and staff.

    ACW saved the day!

    Review of ACW Service Inc.

    Brian and his team at ACW were amazing. We were in the middle of selling our home and on closing day during final walk through, we had what looked like a leak on our basement ceiling under the kitchen. Of course you can imagine the stress of this happening on closing day! We contacted ACW and they worked with us and got out to the property. Brian was very patient with my hysterics (lol) We live out of state so I was trying to resolve this over the phone and he was extremely professional and calming each time I talked to him. He kept me updated during the process and we were able to get a resolution and close on our home. Definitely recommend ACW for their quick service, wonderful professionalism and over all experience.
