Frequently Asked Questions

    1. Is it cheaper to repair or replace a dishwasher?

    There are various reasons why, if at all possible, you should repair your dishwasher rather than replace it. Reusing your appliance is typically less expensive, better for the environment, and less of a nuisance than searching for and installing a new one.

    1. Who do you call when your dishwasher breaks?

    Many of us take the convenience of a dishwasher for granted. Many of us don't want to go back to hand-washing the dishes when it starts acting up. Hand washing dishes not only takes a lifetime, but it also does not produce as clean results as a dishwasher. You should call a professional if your dishwasher has been acting up recently.

    1. What would cause a dishwasher to stop working?

    A clogged spray arm, a dirty filter, or a damaged soap dispenser are all possible causes of an ineffective dishwasher. If you've found that your dishwasher isn't cleaning your dishes, it's time to look into it.

    1. Is it worth fixing a 14-year-old dishwasher?

    Dishwashers are designed to last ten years, but according to Consumer Reports, over 30% of new dishwashers require repair within the first five years. If your dishwasher is more than ten years old, replacing it may be more cost-effective than fixing it.

    1. Why is water in the bottom of the dishwasher?

    Clogs cause water in the bottom of the dishwasher in the filter, garbage disposal, drain hose, drain pump, or air gap. If food or silt builds in these systems, the dishwasher will not drain properly. Locating the blockage and cleaning the debris will remedy the problem.

    1. Can I replace the dishwasher with the washing machine?

    Most likely not. The drainage system will be utterly insufficient. A cold water supply will have to be improvised, and the capacity of the hot water line will have to be expanded. A portable dishwasher might be a better alternative, but you'll still need to make sure the faucet can handle the water connection.

    1. How do you test a dishwasher drain valve?

    To inspect your check valve flapper, locate it. It'll be found on the drain pump's or housing's outlet port in most models. To inspect it, you'll need to remove the lower access panel.

  1. How to choose an oven for home?

Many factors must be considered when purchasing an oven, including price, size, kind, color, and look. Choosing the appropriate oven can significantly impact the long-term success of your kitchen and home makeover. Also, many people need it for small businesses; keep it in mind too.

  1. What are the pros and cons of self-cleaning ovens?

PROS – Self-cleaning ovens are not only more cost-effective over time, but they are also safer in many ways than conventional ovens. Harsh and potentially poisonous cleaning agents, as well as the unpleasant hand cleaning of small crevices within the oven chamber, are avoided, and the risk of burns or other accidents is considerably minimized.

CONS – The most significant disadvantage of self-cleaning ovens is that they are more expensive to purchase. It may be difficult to recoup this cost through long-term savings if you don't use your oven often and require regular complete cleaning.

  1. Is a clicking sound coming from my oven normal?

The control relays cycling the bake and broils elements on and off to maintain oven temperature accurately is what you're hearing. This is completely normal. Because of the precise control in new ovens, you may notice more relay noise than older ones.

  1. Repair or buy a new appliance: does a repair make sense?

Depending on the fault, as well as the age and condition of your oven, our technicians will conduct an analysis and recommend whether a service repair is necessary. They will advise you on the best course of action. In most cases, a repair will be recommended if it is both technically and economically viable. What happens to your appliance is ultimately up to you.

  1. Why does my oven take too long to preheat?

If the range or wall oven is set to the correct voltage (120 volts for gas and 240 volts for electric), the oven should preheat in the following order:

  • Preheating time for electric ovens with hidden bake elements and gas ovens can take 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Preheat time for electric ovens with a Hidden Bake Element and the Fast Preheat feature ranges from 7 to 10 minutes.
  • Preheating an oven with a visible bake element can take 5 to 10 minutes.
  1. Is it worth getting a pyrolytic oven?

If you're a serious cook or baker who uses and cleans your oven frequently, a pyrolytic oven is a good investment. While they are initially more expensive, their insulating features allow them to heat up faster and consume less energy than a standard electric oven, saving money in the long term.

  1. Could anybody install all types of ovens?

We would recommend contacting the professional experts for it.

 

  1. Do you repair ice makers?

We can repair almost anything, although certain ice makers are more difficult to repair than others. When it comes to certain brands, the parts that fail frequently are, for the most part, predictable. We have these items in our vehicles regularly because we know this is a typical problem.

  1. Refrigerator repair, is it the best choice?

What a great question! We don't always advise you to repair your refrigerator. After speaking with you on the phone, we can usually determine whether or not the repair is worthwhile. It's sometimes preferable to buy a new refrigerator rather than repair an old one. Our refrigerator repair technicians want to make sure you're making the greatest decision for you, not for us.

  1. How can I clean my refrigerator back?
  • Unplug fridge.
  • If necessary, remove the base grill.
  • Use a coil brush to brush from spindles all dust, grime, hair of the pet, etc. (You may simply get one on Amazon or in the Home Depot improvement store).
  • Sweep up.
  1. How to Set the Appropriate Temperature

Maintain a fridge temperature of 37 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit and a freezer temperature of 0 degrees. 

  1. On an LG ice maker, how do you manually start the harvest cycle?

When troubleshooting an ice maker, it's sometimes necessary to manually start the harvest cycle. An unexplained leak in the ice bucket or no ice is two examples. Manually initiating the harvest cycle in LG ice producers is as simple as pressing a button.

Press and hold the filling key for 3 seconds to start the harvest cycle. Harvest –> fill –> ice producing is how the ice maker works.

  1. Is it true that refrigerators perform better when they're full?

Chilly foods and beverages help your refrigerator absorb the warm air that enters the fridge when it is opened. To maintain its low temperature, your refrigerator requires "thermal mass" (a.k.a. a lot of stuff). Don't worry if you're thinking, "Oh no, I eat out a lot," or "I don't have that much food in my fridge at once." With something as simple as a large jug of water, you can keep those costs and temperatures down. Isn't that simple?

Just a warning: don't overfill the freezer.

  1. Do You Have Qualified Employees?

Our team consists of outstanding technicians who can repair any type of broken device. No work is too difficult for our staff. You will profit from the expertise of specialists with our appliance repairs.

 

  1. What causes a freezer to stop freezing?

If your freezer won't freeze, it's most likely because the condenser coils are unclean, reducing the freezer's total chilling capacity. The evaporator fan motor is broken, and since it's in charge of circulating air throughout the freezer, it needs to be fixed as soon as possible.

  1. Why is my fridge working but not the freezer?

Due to defrost system faults, unclean condenser coils, fan failures, leaky door gaskets, or control issues, your freezer may not become cold enough. Even if the problem starts in the freezer, you'll most likely find that the refrigerator and freezer aren't cool enough.

  1. How do I reset my freezer compressor?

There are four steps to resetting a refrigerator compressor.

  • Remove the plug from your refrigerator...
  • From the control panel, turn off the refrigerator and freezer.
  • Reset the temperature in your freezer and refrigerator.
  • Wait for the temperature in the refrigerator to return to normal.
  1. Is there a reset button on a compressor for a refrigerator?

 Absolutely not, there is no reset button, but there are numerous factors that can prevent it from cooling. Most of the refrigerator models do not have a reset button.

  1. What causes a refrigerator compressor to fail?

A mechanically locked compressor, a failed fan motor, and dirty condenser coils are the three most common reasons for failures caused by wear and tear. The compressor in the refrigerator is the heart of the cooling system; the refrigerator cannot function without a working compressor.

  1. How do you troubleshoot a refrigerator?

Check the setting of the temperature. Make sure the refrigerator or freezer offers sufficient space for air passage. Check for limitations of airflow—test temperature control. Clean the spools of the condenser.  Test the switch for the door. Test the heater for defrosting.

  1. Can you fix a compressor on a refrigerator?

A refrigerator compressor repair could cost anything from $50 to $300. Various factors determine the cost of repairing a malfunctioning refrigerator compressor. The most important of which is the compressor's size and whether you choose a new or reconditioned compressor.

    1. My electric dryer is on but not heating; what could be preventing it from heating?

    House fuse or breaker, heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse (not all models), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug are all things that can prevent an electric dryer from heating.

    1. My gas dryer is on but not heating; what could be preventing it from heating?

    Glow bar igniter, thermal fuse (not all types), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats, motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor are all things that can prevent a gas dryer from heating.

    1. After a short period, why does the dryer shut off?

    When a dryer abruptly shuts off when it is "totally operating," the thermostat, thermal resistor, and thermal fuse are frequently a problem that switches the dryer off to prevent overheating. Each of the pieces can be checked with a voltage meter, to establish whether or not it works properly.

    1. Why won't the dryer start when you turn it on? 

    Contacting professionals is the first thing you have to do in this case.

    Upon the arrival of these experts, they will check out a lot of things in order to identify the cause. The first thing that is checked by an appliance repair technician is the breaker that drives the dryer. If this breaker is affected due to excessive power supply, it is promptly shut down.

    Other problems, such as a broken power line or a defective dryer door switch, may lead to dryer issues.

    1. How can I get rid of issues caused by overheating the dryer?

    If a dryer overheats, it can damage clothing or cause minor fires. 

    A faulty thermostat is one possible source of this overheating problem. You and your family will be put in danger if you wait too long to contact a professional to fix this issue. Therefore, it is critical to locate a reputable appliance repair company as soon as possible.

    1. What parts do you utilize?

    We use parts of exceptional quality that we obtain from trusted vendors. As a result, we can be confident that the effects we accomplish will persist as long as the appliances are used. We inspect the appliance first to see if any parts need to be replaced, and then we place an order if that is necessary. We receive goods in a timely way and will replace any defective items as soon as possible.

    1. Are your prices reasonable?

    Yes, we charge a fair price for our services. Our mission is to provide high-quality, cost-effective, and dependable services. Get a quote for our services by contacting us!

     

    1. Why is the cooktop not turning on?

    Before contacting a repair professional, ensure that the unit is properly plugged in. Check the outlet as well to ensure it is not damaged.

    If the oven unit is operational but not the cooktop, the internal components are most likely faulty. Do you have the knowledge to repair the parts? If you don't, you should contact an electric stove repair professional.

    1. Why Won’t My Gas Burner Light?

    Let the burner cool down before the igniter, the burner, or the control buttons are inspected. Is there any burned food debris in there? If so, clean with a soft sponge and cleanser. Scrape the scrap out with a paper clip from any small cracks and then try to connect the burner.

    1. Why is my cooktop not working?

    If one of your electric stovetop burners is not heating, the problem could be a faulty burner, a faulty connection in the burner socket, or a faulty switch.

    To determine whether the problem is with the burner, replace it with one that you know works. If the burner does not heat, the issue is most likely with the burner socket or the infinite switch. Connections in the burner socket can burn out and stop working. Inspect the socket if the prongs appear to be burned. Replace the socket if it appears charred or burned.

    1. Can electric cooktops be repaired?

    This design provides great cooking capabilities to the modern home, whether you have an electric cooktop built into your cooking range or a standalone electric cooktop. Electric cooktops, like any other appliance, can develop issues that necessitate maintenance and repairs.

    1. Why am I unable to set the temperatures?

    Electric cooktops are popular among homeowners because they allow very exact temperature control. You won't be able to take benefit of all that your appliance has to offer if you can't appropriately change the temperature of your burners.

    A fault could cause this issue with the unit's endless switch. A defective switch can compel your burners to heat to one specific level regardless of your intended settings because it is connected to the dial that regulates power levels. A malfunctioning internal ignition switch is another major cause of this issue. Whatever the cause, you should contact an appliance repair agency to take care of the problem.

    1. Why won't the burner light go off on my electric stove?

    Check to see if the pan you're using is too small for the burner. The burner will produce too much heat if the pans are too small for the burner. As a result, the heating element will remain hot, and the indicator light will remain on.

    1. What do you do when your stove burner doesn't turn off?

    The oven may not receive the message to turn off the burner due to a malfunction in the electronics or control pad. An oven, like a computer, may need to be restarted from time to time. Disconnect the oven from the power source by disconnecting it from the wall or turning off the electricity at the breaker box. Wait 60 seconds before proceeding.

    1. Is it really necessary for my washer to be level?

    Yes. It is critical for washing machines to be level in order to function properly.

    1. Is it true that front-loading washers are more efficient than top-loading washers?

    Absolutely. In fact, the increased upfront cost of a front loader can be recouped in a matter of years by reducing water, waste, drying time, and soap usage.

    1. Is there a limit to how many clothes I can put in the washer?

    A typical rule of thumb for a top loader is to lay clothing loosely inside the washer until they reach the agitator's top. Fill a front-loading washer until it's completely full, with the cloths compressed as little as possible.

    1. At the end of a cycle, how can I get rid of the soap suds?

    This is frequently an example that you use too much detergent to wash the items. Try to halve the detergent amount. If then the clothing seems not as clean as it should be, increase the load slightly until the garments are clean.

    1. What should I attempt to repair and what should I let the pros do with a washing machine?

    There are a variety of fixes that you can manage if you know how electricity works. There are very few careers that you should attempt if you don't understand electricity. To see what you should and shouldn't do, please go to the bottom link.

    1. Do I have to pay an estimated call-out charge only?

    When you ring the washing machine company, ask this inquiry. If you don't ask, if they charge you, you haven't come back. Ensure that you provide the right information and check that it is simply the estimate you want when you arrive. Please remember that the usual repair costs for a washing machine are quite small because anything above 100 or more pounds makes people consider buying a new machine instead. Most enterprises have from £20 to £45 for a basic call, covering an estimation and a charge for the first few hours.

    1. My washing machine will not start. What exactly is the problem?

    Go to our washing machine repair support using your model number.

     

    1. Can't I change the temperature on an electric stove?

    Electric stoves can have the issue of being either entirely on or completely off, with no in-between options. When this happens, it usually indicates that your infinite switch is malfunctioning. The endless switch is in charge of regulating the amount of electricity sent to the burner. When the infinite switch fails, there is no regulation in the power supply to the burner, resulting in an electric stove that is either entirely on or completely off. Any appliance repair agency can replace the infinite switch because it is a popular and simple repair.

    1. When I turn on the stove, I don't hear any clicking?

    A clicking sound should be heard when a gas burner is turned on. The ignition is attempting to fire the gas going to the burner with the clicking noise. If you hear a clicking sound but don't see a flame, check to see if you can smell gas. If you don't smell gas, it's possible that your gas supply has been cut off. Ensure that the burner is clean.

    If you try to light the burner and hear no or a very faint clicking sound, it's possible that you need a new switch.

    1. Why Doesn't My Electric Stove Get Hot?

    Make sure you don't blow a fuse by checking your breaker box! This indicates that you may need a new oven or to hire a stove repair professional. Check for evidence of damage on the broken coil, and if it's unclean, clean it well. Furthermore, an electric range's average lifespan is roughly 15 years, give or take a few. Broken burners on electric stoves older than 15 years may indicate that it's time to consider replacing them.

    1. An error code is displayed on the cooktop, what to do?

    If the error code on your equipment isn't stated in the user handbook, it's most likely due to a severe issue with the electronic controls. In that situation, one of our technicians will most likely need to come out.

    1. Why is the flame from my gas stove cooktop's surface burners yellow?

    Are you cooking with pans that are too big for the burner? Use a pan that is just a smidgeon bigger than the burner. Consult the user manual for more information.

    It's conceivable that your device's gas input control system or gas pressure regulator isn't working properly. In this situation, one of our technicians will most likely need to come out. Please contact us soon away.

    1. Why does my oven make a lot of noise?

    It's very usual to hear light noises from metal expansion during preheating or chilling. A technician visit is recommended if loud hammering noises ("bang!") are heard.

    1. How can you make your throat plate last longer?

    If you want your neck plate to last longer, don't bank the flames too high. Cleaning the top of the baffle plate regularly is also a good idea since debris tends to fall back down the chimney and accumulate on the rear of the plate.
