General Appliance Tips

A clean appliance is a happy appliance

By keeping the appliances clean will extend its life and reduce the need for a repair. Dirt can store moisture, attract insects, wear our moving parts and cause short circuits. If you see cockroaches around the appliances or see them going inside the appliance itself we suggest you act fast and get rid of them. We have done plenty of repairs where cockroaches have turned your appliance into their home and have caused short circuits.

Keep moisture away

Even tho a lot of appliances are designed to work with water doesnt mean that they can be kept in a backyard shed or in a laundry that is not sealed from outside environment well. Only approved appliances are allowed to be kept outside the house but they cost a lot of money. Moisture causes corrosion on electrical components and with time destroys them or if enough moisture is present a short circuit can occur and burn out the main electrical board in your washing machine, dishwasher or dryer.

If abnormal sounds can be heard

If you can hear your washing machine, dryer or dishwasher make unusual sounds more then once its best to get it checked out as soon as possible. Fairly often people run their appliances until they completely break down and this way a simple repair can turn into something really expensive.
