  • Garbage Disposal vibrates excessivley

    Hello All!
    I recently moved into a new place and the garbage disposal's RPMs are too much that it makes a very loud news and shakes the entire adjoining counter space over my dish washer. I notified our property manager and she said that that's just the way they are and there's nothing they can do.

    SOMETHING's gotta give b/c it's just too obnoxious to use. Are there any suggestions for taming the vibration/noise? It's not an Insinkerator.

    Thanks so much for your help in advance!

    Install an Insinkerator.

    If you had the name and model of what is installed it would be easier to give you advice. However, I would imagine it is just a cheap unit which is going to be loud. It is probably got other issues as well but not enough for an owner to want to change it.

      Just out of curiosity - is this disposal itself brand new? is the dishwasher drain tied into it?

          a couple of items to consider.

          is the sink a stainless steel sink? thin gauge will always vibrate.

          also look inside of the disposal and see if there is anything lodged inside. also does it have a swivel style impeller? i've seen where one was missing and threw the whole thing out of balance.

          the high speed disposals such as whirl a way are traditionally louder and vibrate more.

          by holding onto the outer shell of the disposal while it's running, does it quiet down the vibration?
