Types Of Garbage Disposals We Repair
Continuous Feed- These are the most popular. Food is placed into the disposal, using a switch to turn it on. After the food is ground up, it falls through small holes onto a spinning plate where it is then washed down the drain.
Batch Feed- Similar to using the continuous feed disposal, the only difference is the way it is turned on. You place a specific stopper on top and turn it. The stopper activates a switch and then it is then turned on.
Dishwasher Garbage Disposals-These are found inside the actual dishwasher and are activated when the washer is on. It functions the same way a continuous feed disposal works.
Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Jamming- If you can turn the unit on, and its humming but nothing is actually being ground, more than likely a small particle has lodged itself between the blades causing it to stop spinning. Sometimes it is caused by bits of plastic or broken glass that accidentally fell down the drain,
Overheating- If you turn the unit on and nothing happens as all, it is probably over heated. This is caused when the disposal has been over filled and it trips itself off. It might be as easy as pushing a button.
Motor Issues- Depending on how old the unit is and how often it is used, the motor might be on its way out.

Had a leak under our kitchen sink behind the cabinets. It unfortunately wasn’t a simple fix for us, so our landlord sent A-1 over and they had our leak fixed and cabinets repaired that afternoon. While we didn’t have to pay for it (renting) I’d suggest them to anyone.
Their tech James came out and this is the second Ac company I have called in the last 4 days. The first told me he could find nothing wrong. James actually took the time to listen to what I was telling him. He didn't find too much issue with our ac other than the coils being disgusting. Even after he found that that was most likely our issue he still did a few more tests and found our vents were also causing an issue. He then went around the house and checked all the vents. He actually seemed as though he cares and didn't try to tell us a thousand things were wrong when they really weren't. I will recommend this company to anyone who needs their plumbing, heating or air conditioning fixed.
