  • Leaking: Garbage disposals can develop leaks in various places, such as the mounting assembly or the seals around the blades.
  • Motor problems: The motor can malfunction or burn out, preventing the blades from spinning.
  • Clogged drain: Food debris and other materials can sometimes become lodged in the drain pipe, preventing the disposal from working properly.
