Before settling into Fresno for my retirement, I spent the better part of my life and career doing appliance repair in Frisco, TX for a local company. Guess I’m a desert guy. For 35 solid years, plus or minus, I repaired major household appliances all throughout the greater Dallas area. Then, after moving, I worked part time for another appliance company out here near Fresno to pick up a little extra spending cash for about 5 years. You could safely say I’ve seen it all. From buzzing fridges to cold dryers to leaky dishwashers; I’ve fixed them all. Sometimes it’s simple user error, other times a motor has gone bad. I usually can tell within a couple minutes of an inspection what the real problem is. Appliance repair has pretty much been my life and I can’t think of any subject matter I know better than this.
Now fully in my golden years of retirement, I’ve kind of got nothing better to do than share the tips I’ve learned along the way for maintaining and fixing your own home appliances.
Look, first and foremost, I do want to say that it’s best to hire a company and not take on the technical stuff yourself. That said, sometimes it helps to just have an inkling of a clue what he heck the problem is in the first place when your appliance breaks down so you can figure out if it’s something you’ll need to hire out or if it’s a quick fix you can manage yourself. That’s what this site is all about. What you can fix, what you shouldn’t touch and how to know where to begin when you’re facing a specific appliance malfunction. Passing on my knowledge in the hopes that it won’t go to waste now that I don’t use it everyday.
