Appliance Repair Tips Toronto

Appliance repairs often strike at the most inopportune times. Unfortunately, they can leave a gaping wound in your budget, if you don’t plan for them. Here are a few ideas and tips to consider, that will help ease your next appliance repair problem.

Appliance Repair Tips Toronto

Before You Do It Yourself

Make sure the appliance isn’t covered by a service agreement or warranty. If it’s still covered under warranty, you will need to find out how to use the warranty properly. First call the company offering the warranty and ask them for clarification on using the warranty properly (DO NOT void the warranty by trying to fix the appliance yourself). After that, your next step is to contact (or take) the appliance to an appropriate maintenance or service company. Have them do the repairs under the protective cover of your warranty. Also, you should make sure you are properly reimbursed for all charges after having your appliance repaired.

 

Do It Yourself

If there is no warranty or coverage on your appliance, your next step is to track down the owner’s manual, and try and make the repair yourself. You shouldn’t repair an appliance without having the service manual with you. When the manual or warranty isn’t an option, your next choice will be to look under the lid, or inside of the appliance, and find the basic instruction guidelines. Most appliances have a small set of operating instructions, printed on the appliance somewhere, which MIGHT help you solve your problem. For most of us, though, these steps probably won’t be enough.

 

Finding an Appliance Repair Service Company

If you aren’t able to make the repairs yourself quickly and easily, then you will need to find an appliance repair service to do the job right, and get your appliance working again. There are several ways you can find an appliance repair company in your area. You can…

  • Hunt down and dust off that huge yellow pages book, lying somewhere in the dark, outer recesses of your home.
  • Ask a friend or family member who they use for their appliance repairs
  • Visit an online directory, like Yahoo’s ™ yellow pages
  • If you’d like input from an independent source, on reliable local appliance repair companies, call a major real estate firm (in your area) and ask who they use for their appliance repairs.

 

Appliance Repair Services

A majority of repair companies have technicians available who can repair most household appliances. Major appliance repair companies will typically make service calls to your home. Small appliances often get repaired at the local repair shop, instead of at your home. If it’s a small appliance, you want to make sure they offer repair or replacement services for it. This would include items such as microwave ovens, oven fans, heaters, Kitchen aid ™ mixers, other small miscellaneous kitchen appliances, and maybe even power tools.

 

Questions to Ask Repair Companies

Once you have the names of a few appliance repair service companies, you may want to ask any or all of these questions when you call…

  1. Ask when the soonest they can come out to make the repair? If the timing is adequate, ask how punctual they are (and if they have a guarantee on the time)? There’s nothing worse than waiting all day for a repair that won’t happen that day.
  2. Ask if they offer a guarantee on their work and their parts?
  3.  Ask about a written estimate; service call charge; fees; or a combination of written estimate with final bill?
  4. Ask if it is possible to add service call fees to your monthly utility bill.
  5. Gas, electrical, radiation, and refrigeration repairs require special considerations. Qualified Repair technicians must have experiences with gas, electrical, and refrigeration issues. When they repair gas appliances and microwave ovens, appliance repair technicians need to be aware of dangers form gas and radiation leaks. When you need to have your stove fixed or your gas lines checked for leaks, you definitely want to call a home appliance repair person for help. Mostly, just make sure they are qualified to fix the specific appliance you need repaired.
  6. If you’re interested, you can ask them if they offer a monthly service plan. Having a consistent appliance repair technician and service can keep your home appliances humming right along, and may also help prevent unwanted breakdowns. This would give you peace of mind for all your major home appliances, and keep all your appliances protected under one convenient repair plan. You can also ask questions, which might include concerns about appliance installation, operation and repair.

 

Hopefully some of these tips will help ease your next appliance repair problem. Once you have exhausted all of these steps, and if the repair still didn’t work, then it might be time to look into buying the new appliance you’ve been dreaming of. But we’ll cover that in another article.

 

Xpress Appliance Repair Vaughan Keeping Your Washer in Tip-Top Shape

Keeping Your Washer in Tip-Top Shape

Xpress Vaughan washing machine repair can fix this Your washing machine is dryer- vaughannormally a loyal appliance working hard each day to clean the family’s clothes. Even with a trusted Vaughan washing machine repair professional servicing your appliance frequently, there are several maintenance tips that help prolong its lifespan. Take some time out of your schedule to perform a few of these tips and watch your washer last longer than previous models.
Leveling Tips

A professional may have installed a washer initially, leveling the appliance’s feet with rapid rotations. Residents must level the washer throughout the years because of vibrations. Those feet can rotate out of level with several hundred washing cycles, for example. Simply place a hand level on the washer’s top surface. You can find levels at any home improvement store. Ask a friend to watch the level as you turn the feet one at a time. As the washer slowly levels out, you’ll need to adjust the two front feet to finish the process.
Water-Fill Hoses

The washer seems to fill and empty quickly, thanks to the strong water-fill hoses attached to connectors. Periodically check these hoses for any cracks or damage along their lengths. When any damage is found, it is best to replace the hose. Calling an appliance repair technician is the best solution, so hoses can be switched out properly. Additionally, verify that hose connector threads are completely tight at the washer and wall outlets too. If these hoses fail, a huge water volume can spill out into the laundry room.
Lint Disposal

You may be familiar with removing lint from the dryer, but there is a hidden compartment in the washer too. All models are different, so take a flashlight and gaze into the washer drum. Along the edges could be a lint rack that just slides up and out. The middle section or agitator might hold a lint storage area too. Make sure to clean these areas out after each wash. You’ll notice less lint on your clothing as you move it between the washer and dryer. Clean lint racks also improve washer performance because the system isn’t compensating for the added weight.
Surface Cleaning

It’s possible to just run a damp cloth across the washer’s exterior, but there could be more serious grime there that doesn’t release from the surface. Create a 1:1 ratio mixture of vinegar to water. Dip a rag into this mixture and wipe it across the washer’s exterior. The vinegar helps to dissolve dirt and oils while the water refreshes the surface’s appearance. Whether you have a basic white or bright red washing machine, cleaning the surface truly makes the appliance feel brand new.

By practicing all these maintenance tips, your washer should work almost perfectly for each load. However, be aware of foreign objects hindering normal operation. Always check those pockets for loose change or even pens. You don’t want to call a Vaughan washing machine repair professional for an emergency service. It’s best to stick with preventive service calls and at-home maintenance to keep that washer in tip-top shape.
