Garbage Disposer Backing Up In Double Sink

For Some Reason My Disposer Is Spitting Water And Smell Back Into My Double Sink When I Am Using The Disposer. What Can Be Causing This To Push Water Up The Left Hand Sink When The Disposer Is Running On The Right Hand Sink?

I would say that you have a partial clog in the drainline. Double sinks usually mean a combination drainline. Two sinks hooked into one drain with a crossover pipe. The disposer is pushing the water harder than the faucet water does so it backs up into the other sink. May want to run a snake down the drainline. Good luck.

Your drain is clogged. It will probably require a snake to clear it. It usualy clogs in the wall.
