Please refer the following appliance repair tips before you attempt to repair your appliance including washing machines, dryers and refrigerators:


  • Make sure the appliance is plugged in and turned on.
  • If plugged into a GFI outlet, please ensure that it is not tripped.
  • Make sure the appliance is plugged in and no circuit breakers or fuses are blown.
  • If your appliance requires water, make sure the valves are all turned on.
  • Ensure all doors and top lids are closed fully to engage any switches.
  • Finally, please refer the user’s manual to see if there are any manufacturer recommendations that will fix the issue.

Stove, Oven, Cooktop or Microwave Repair Tips

  • Make sure the appliance is plugged in and turned on.
  • For microwaves, do not insert any metal objects.
  • Gas ovens and range, try to bake at a regular temperature of 350 degrees to avoid cycling the igniter.
  • For electric ovens, try not to spill onto the element so not to short it out.

    My fridge hasn’t been keeping food as cold as it used to, so thanks for these tips. I like your point about checking to see if there are any blown fuses. I’ll have to check this first before I call an appliance repair service.
