How to Repair a Garbage Disposal

Garbage DisposalCommon garbage disposal repairs include servicing a flywheel, hoses, seals, and a worn impeller. Here are the step-by-step instructions for these repairs.

Servicing the flywheel:

  1. Check the bottom side of the disposal for a six-sided (hex) hole.
  2. If it has one, look for a hex wrench in a pouch on or near the disposal.
  3. Simply insert the hex wrench in the hex hole and rotate it in a circle in both directions to free the flywheel.

Servicing Hoses and Seals:

  1. Place a hand at various locations around the disposal.
  2. If the leakage is from underneath the garbage disposal, it is probably leaking through the flywheel seal and into the motor.
  3. You will need to remove the garbage disposal from the drain system. Disassemble the unit and replace the seal — or take it in for service.

Servicing Worn Impellers:

  1. Unplug the garbage disposal.
  2. Remove all hose fittings leading into or away from the disposal.
  3. To service worn impellers on many models, you must remove the flywheel.
  4. Once the flywheel is removed, the impellers can be removed or sharpened in place.
