We can offer our professional advice as to whether you should repair or replace your garbage disposal.
It might be time to replace your garbage disposal if it exhibits any of these issues:
Frequent clogging. If you use your garbage disposal correctly, only disposing of food items approved by the manufacturer, and it still clogs frequently, it may be time for a replacement. You may also need a disposal with a greater capacity.
You must reset your disposal often. Occasionally having to push the reset button on your disposal is normal, but having to do it every time or multiple times before it will work is a sign of an issue.
Stubborn odors. If you’ve tried tricks and tips to freshen your disposal but foul odors still linger, the smell (usually from stuck pieces of food, germs, and bacteria) may be trapped in the unit. In some cases, the only way to eliminate the smell is to replace the unit.
Dull blades. If the blades are no longer sharp enough to properly dispose of food, a replacement unit is the only solution. Sharper blades mean faster, more efficient food waste disposal.
