Don’t you just hate it when an appliance suddenly stops working? Naturally it always seems to happen with little warning, and you only discover that there’s a problem when you are about to use the appliance. For example, you might have just finished washing your clothes and when you put them in the dryer you discover that the dryer isn’t working? Or perhaps it’s your dishwasher, Air conditioner, microwave, stove or refrigerator that stops working.
The immediate thought that goes through most of our heads when we discover that a major appliance is not working properly or has stopped working is that we’ll have to purchase a new one, or get an expensive repair service in to fix the appliance. Most of the time we are not financially prepared to do this so it causes a lot of stress, doesn’t it?
While both of those scenarios could end up being true, why don’t you try visiting the Appliance Repair Forums first and see if you might be able to fix the problem yourself.
The appliance repair forums will likely be most appealing to those who are natural do it yourselfers, but even if you don’t think you are that handy check it out first before you call the repairman or go out and buy a new fridge. Sometimes all you need is one small part that’s easy to replace in order to get an appliance back in working order.
I’ll give you an example. When we first bought our house we were happy to find that we had a built in humidifier on our furnace. Well, it worked for the first year or two that we had the house, but then it suddenly stopped working. As I said earlier our first thoughts when we discovered it wasn’t working was that we’d have to purchase a new furnace humidifier.
We took a bit of time and looked into the problem, talked to some people online and in some of the DIY stores and discovered that motor breakdown was common on these things and that we probably just need to buy a new motor for the humidifier. We did, and it was easy to install and our furnace humidifiers been working ever since. The motor wasn’t expensive, certainly cheaper than buying a new furnace humidifier, so we saved ourselves a lot of money by doing the simple repair ourselves.
Now, the Appliance Repair forums doesn’t discuss furnace humidifiers- or at least I didn’t see that topic as I browsed through the forums, and I was just using that as an example to show you how easy an appliance repair might turn out to be. The Appliance Repair Forums does discuss all of the major household appliances that tend to be costly to repair when they do break down.
If you own a microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, garbage disposal, stove or range, dryer, air conditioner, or refrigerator why not bookmark this site just in case your appliance breaks down. If and when it does, visit the forum and get advice from the appliance repair experts. The forum is completely free to use although to ask a question you will have to register on the forum first.
Browsing through the forums I’ve seen questions such as how to tighten a refrigerator door handle, icemakers, and the fridge being too warm, in the washer forums I discovered questions about the spin cycle not starting automatically, an unbalanced basket and the detergent door leaking water out the front among many other questions. Each question had a number of answers as the various appliance service technicians that frequent the site tried to help the appliance owner.
If and when you ever have to visit the Appliance repair forums be sure provide as much information about the problem that you are having with the appliance, as well as it’s brand and model number if possible. Your question will be answered by an actual appliance service technician.
Consider bookmarking this site. You never know when you might need it, and getting help on the forum could end up saving you a lot of money.
