When you flip the switch to turn on the garbage disposal and all you get is a hum or a loud, metal-on-metal grinding noise, you know something is wrong. Contact us and we’ll diagnose the issue. Sometimes a small fix can return it to working order.
If it’s time for a replacement, we’ll make a recommendation for a new disposal based on your available space, cooking habits, drain lines and budget. Once the new disposal is picked out we’ll install it and have you back up and running quickly.
Contact us today if you would like to discuss a repair or installation of a garbage disposal. We’ll be happy to answer any questions and help you schedule an appointment for any services you require.
Something too tough to grind, such as a piece of glass, could be jamming the motor and removal might be possible if damage has not occurred.
Rotating a hex wrench back and forth to turn the motor manually for a full revolution and then switching on the motor may fix the problem.
If the disposal is jammed, the motor can overheat. Giving it a few minutes to cool down, we will push the reset button to see if the disposal will start working again.
Before you decide on a new disposal, give us a call. We’ll inspect your sink space, suggest a brand, and install it.
Things to consider before buying a Garbage Disposal
When you’re shopping for a new disposal, there are several factors to take into consideration. We can help you figure out what type of garbage disposal you need. Some things to think about before selecting:
Think about who will be using the disposal:
If you have children who will be using the disposal, batch feed disposals require the use of a stopper prior to operation, which can be safer. Continuous feed disposals start running when you flip a switch and keep running until you switch it off.
Choose a motor that’s right for your household:
Models with lower horsepower are suitable for small households with a small amount of food waste. Models with 1/2 horsepower are better for larger households with more food waste.
Consider the features you want the disposal to have:
You can buy a disposal made to function more quietly, one made from stainless steel, or one that connects to your dishwasher.
What kind of plumbing do you have at your home:
If your plumbing is connected to a septic tank, you might need to buy a disposal made especially for septic tanks.

Moyer’s has always been good to us. Their customer service is excellent and the repair work had always been great. Just had some plumbing done and the repair guy did a wonderful job. Jim L. was knowledgeable, friendly, polite and I would recommend him to everyone.
Their work is always well-done and professional...

I use Moyer for Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Pest Control. Their work is always well-done and professional, and their policy of up-front pricing allows me to know what things cost ahead of time.
I have before and will again recommend Moyer to others.

I have been a loyal longtime customer of Moyer for over 20 years. Our recent visits by Nick, of their plumbing dept, is why. Not only was he professional and courteous during his visit but he resolved the problem and kept us updated while he was completing the job. While some might think plumbers are expensive, he kept the job to a fair price and explained all the work he had done. I have before and will again recommend Moyer to others.
