Frequently Asked Questions For Stove Repair
Why won't my stove top turn on?

likely require a professional to fix it.

It is best to have a technician perform an in-person diagnosis for this repair since it could be caused by a number of issues, which include:
- loose/faulty wire connection
- broken/damaged element switch
- burned out surface element
Frequently Asked Questions For Oven Repair
My oven door is jammed/won't close properly.
First, you could try to unplug the appliance, wait for it to cool down, and reconnect it. If this does not work, you may have to remove the door from the hinges to further inspect it. The hinges, springs,
gasket, or latch might need to be repaired or replaced. Our experts are extremely familiar with these repairs and would be happy to help.
The light in my oven won't turn on.
In most cases, this is an easy fix. You would simply need to replace the lightbulb. If it still doesn’t turn on, there is likely an issue with the wiring break or the switch that turns the light on/off.
Why doesn't my oven heat to the right temperature?
There are a number of things that could be responsible. The most common components that could be causing this are the igniter, the heating element, or the temperature sensor. For this type of problem, it
is best to have an expert technician take a look so they can give you a proper diagnosis. Contact us if you would like to set up an appointment.
Frequently Asked Questions For Washer Repair
Why is my washer so noisy?
If you notice your washer is making loud/different noises than usual, it is possible some debris got added to the wash that shouldn’t be in there. This can be prevented by checking your clothing pockets
before tossing them in the machine. If this is not the case, there is likely an issue with the drum, whether it be loose or broken.
Why are my clothes coming out dirty/ripped?
This could also be a result of unintended debris making its way into the wash. To solve the issue, you should check clothing pockets before the item enters the wash or, if it is a more delicate clothing
item, handwash it or use a more gentle wash cycle.
Why won't the water in my washer drain?
The drain hose is likely blocked. in this case, try to disconnect the hose from the machine and drain and pour out the water to check for causes of the blockage before reconnecting. This can be a messy
process. If you are not confident performing this repair on your own, give us a call, we would love to help.
Frequently Asked Questions For Dryer Repair
My dryer runs, but it does not heat up.
It is quite possible you are dealing with a faulty thermal fuse. This could be caused by a machine overload which has a few potential causes, including blocked ventilation or clogged lint screens. Give us
a call if you need your thermal fuse replaced.
Why do my clothes take so long to dry?
This could be caused by a build-up of lint in your dryer’s lint trap. It is important to remember to clean out the lint as often as possible (ideally after each load). If lint builds up, it could
significantly reduce or prevent airflow. This means your dryer needs to work harder for longer periods of time to dry the clothes. Not to mention, this also leads to overheating and a potential dryer
Frequently Asked Questions For Dishwasher Repair
Why are my dishes coming out dirty?
The leading cause is typically grease or blockages in parts of the appliance. To fix this, remove the dishes from your appliance and give your dishwasher a very thorough clean. If this does not work, also
check if the spray arms need to be adjusted or cleaned. If the problem continues, give our experts a call so we can do a more in-depth evaluation for you.
Why won't my dishwasher start?
This is likely because of an issue with your power source. You can try to disconnect the dishwasher, wait several minutes, and reconnect. if it still doesn’t work, you may have blown a fuse. You can check
this by evaluating the circuit breaker. Give us a call if your dishwasher still doesn’t turn on. We would like to take a look at your appliance to make sure there isn’t a problem with the motor, which
could be a far more complex repair.
Why is my dishwasher making loud noises?
Your dishwasher probably has a loose or faulty part. You can start by checking this yourself. Take a look at the spray arms, bearing rings, or any other parts that could have been knocked loose. If you
cannot find anything, you may need to call a technician to take a closer look at other components inside the machine.
Frequently Asked Questions For Fridge Repair
Why is there a problem with the air flow in my fridge?
There is likely a buildup of debris or ice blocking the vents, or your fridge is too crowded with food, which is preventing proper airflow.
Why is my food spoiling before its expiration date?
There is probably an issue with the ventilation in your fridge/freezer, caused by a buildup of ice, debris, or an overstocked fridge/freezer. If none of these causes are responsible, the temperature
adjustment knob may need to be adjusted if it was tampered with.
This is most likely caused by a blocked defrost drain, which can be the result of food or other debris. this can be cleared out by pouring warm water into the freezer drain hose to flush it out. If this
does not work, it may also mean you have a clogged or frozen water supply line. This problem is more complex and likely requires a professional to fix it. You would need to disconnect the appliance and
examine the water supply line, in which case it may need to be replaced.
