YOU MIGHT REPLACE YOUR GARBAGE DISPOSAL IF: It clogs often
If your garbage disposal is clogging more often than it used then you might want to consider having it replaced. The unit should function at least 80 percent efficiency through its entire life. What do we mean by 80 percent? It means it is taking significantly longer to process food, you have to continually turn it on or off, or you need to keep running water to facilitate.

YOU MIGHT REPLACE YOUR GARBAGE DISPOSAL IF: There is a bad smell coming from the unit.
This is a very easy warning sign that it’s time for a replacement. Bad smells show that the blades are rusting and not getting the job done the way they should be. Food gets stuck around the base and starts rotting. It can rot out the unit all the way through. It is often cheaper to just replace an old unit than fix the blades on it. You can start the warranty over from the beginning with a new unit. Fixing an old unit only extends your warranty a few months. You can try and pour cleaning products like bleach into the old unit, but this is only a temporary fix. The bad smell will return within a few days or less.
YOU MIGHT REPLACE YOUR GARBAGE DISPOSAL IF: If you are replacing your sink.
This is often a very easy choice when you are getting a new sink. It makes a lot of sense to just replace all of the old water lines and replace the old garbage disposal. You are likely to already have professionals on site. It would be a lot easier than having to do it 2 or 3 years later when the old unit inevitably fails. This will also make it more expensive. When you are doing a kitchen remodel, you can often bundle everything in.
