Might also see if you have an undercounter vent attached to the drain line. Those go bad and leak, causing sewer gas to escape into your cabinet. (Mostly on newer construction, they are cheap and easy to replace.)

If it's the disposal, good trick is dump big bag of ice into the sink, let the disposal chew it down, then chase it with some lemons.

: hi. i've got a persistent musty smell, like backed-up water, from my kitchen sink. used drano, to no effect. haven't spotted any obvious leaks. any thoughts as to what it could be? thanks
