- Bottom Freezer
Our Arlington Heights technicians repair all types of gas and electric washing machines.
The first know refrigerator dates back to 1748, though it was until 1834 that the first practical machine was built. It was until the 1930s, however, when electric refrigerators came into widespread use as a replacement for iceboxes. A refrigerator should last on average 15 years. Most common repairs during a refrigerator’s lifetime are replacing the:
- thermostat if the temperature isn’t cold enough
- ice maker motor module and/or water inlet valve
- electronic control board
Whether part of your refrigerator or a freestanding unit, today’s freezers are highly efficient with numerous advanced features to properly control temperatures and preserve foods. Freezers can last 14 to 17 years or more, depending in part on whether you perform regular maintenance. This includes cleaning the coils to remove dust and debris, maintaining proper temperatures, keeping the fridge full, and cleaning the door gasket as well as the interior and exterior. If you see excessive frost, you may have a damaged sensor or door gasket. A sheet of ice at the bottom of the freezer is usually an indication of a clogged drain tube. If the freezer isn’t maintaining the proper temperature, you may need a new thermostat and/or other sensors.
The first washing machine was patented in 1691. Electric washing machines first became widely available in the 1920s, but it wasn’t until after World War II when modern washing machines became a household necessity. A washing machine should last on average 10 years or more if properly maintained. This includes keeping the machine level, using the appropriate amount of detergent, cleaning the dispensers as well as the inside tub on a monthly basis. Common repair issues related to bad switches that regulate water levels as well as on/off conditions and malfunctioning timer. More serious issues can relate to the drive belt, solenoid and/or transmission of the agitator motor, as well as the motor itself.
The first electric dryer was introduced in 1915, but it wasn’t until 1938 when Hamilton Manufacturing introduced the first automatic dryer that became the prototype machine for modern household use. Even then, it wasn’t until post-war prosperity and technological advancements that reduced the cost of the machines led to widespread adoption of dryers beginning in the 1960s. Cleaning the lint trap after every use is essential to an expected life expectancy on average of 12 years, as is regular clean out of the ductwork. Common repairs include replacing the thermal fuse, dryer belt, the electric ignition and/or rollers, drum seals and glides.
Stove and Oven Repair
Cast iron ovens were first manufactured in high quantities in the 1700s. The first gas oven appeared in 1826, and the electric oven in the 1890s. A modern stove’s life expectancy is around 15 years. Common problems include a dirty or clogged burner, faulty igniter, or defective element. Proper maintenance includes regular exterior and interior cleaning. Avoid overuse of water around knobs and dials as this can cause damage to the switches.
