But the truth is that many appliance repairs can be diagnosed and repaired at home, saving you time and money on your appliance problems. So before you pick up the phone to call us, make sure to walk through the following appliance repair tips first.
Refrigerator Repair Tips
When your fridge is on the fritz, it doesn’t take long before you’re left with food that’s going to start going bad. So if your refrigerator has stopped working, the first thing to check is that it is, in fact, still plugged in securely and getting power.
Start by ensuring the unit is plugged in properly to the wall outlet, and then, check the power cable for any damages.
If the cable is worn or broken, do not attempt to repair this yourself. Not only is a broken power cable a fire hazard, but it also poses the threat of electric shock. So if you find your unit’s power cable broken or damaged, we recommend calling us to find a suitable replacement cable.
You should also check to ensure that there are no tripped breakers or blown fuses at your home’s main electrical panel.
Next, if your refrigeration unit still seems to be getting power, but isn’t working properly, your issue might have to do with the unit’s condenser or condenser coils.
So first, check the back of the fridge to see if its condenser coils aren’t overly dirty with dust buildup. If they are, try cleaning them to see if this resolves your problem. In some cases, dirty coils could be causing the unit to overheat and not function properly.
Finally, if you’re still having trouble with your unit, give us a call, and we’ll be happy to come out and take a look.
Stovetop and Oven Repair Tips
If you’re having an issue with your electric stove or oven, again, make sure that it is indeed getting power. If it is, then your issue is likely to do with the unit’s burners or oven elements.
So if you only have a single element that doesn’t seem to be working properly, try swapping it out with a functional burner. If the burner works, then you’ll simply need to replace the faulty burner. But if it doesn’t, then you might need to replace the burner plug.
On the other hand, if you’re dealing with a gas stove or oven that isn’t working properly, you’ll need to make sure that the gas flow isn’t being reduced by a clogged or dirty gas jet. Many times, food residue and grease will splash on your stove’s burners, clogging up the tiny gas jets, in turn, causing your problem.
So before calling us, make sure to clean your stovetop and oven properly. Another common issue with gas appliances is a faulty ignitor switch. So if you’ve heard your ignitor click repeatedly or randomly when you’re not using it, then the switch will likely need to be replaced.
Washer or Dryer Repair Tips
Compared to refrigerators and stoves, washers and dryers are slightly more complicated appliances. They have many more internal parts that move, which means that diagnosing your problem might be a bit more complicated.
But as with any other appliance issue, first, make sure that the unit is plugged in securely and getting power. Then, perform a basic visual inspection to see if you can pinpoint where your problem is originating from.
