How do I know when my garbage disposal is no good?

my garbage disposal is practically brand new and all of a sudden started leaking from somewhere and I have only had it for 3months. What do i do to check it out and fix it to work again?

Hi Hulababy31,

 

Check your hose connections, one may be loose and is allowing water to leak.

 

Also inspect the sink flange (disposer mounting) If there is not sufficient plumbers putty under the flange, it will leak.

 

You may have to remove the disposer and reinstall the sink flange or strainer as they are called.

 

If everything checks out run the water in the sink and watch to see where it is leaking at, the disposer may indeed be defective.

 

Mike,
