Major Appliance Brands That We Repair In/Near Buffalo Grove, IL
Maytag Home Appliance Repair
Whirlpool Corporation, the world’s leading home appliance manufacturer, produces Maytag appliances – so it is no wonder their products are very dependable. That said, any machine can experience hiccups. Recognizing minor issues goes a long way in preserving the quality of your appliances.

Maytag, Jenn-Air, Kitchen Aid and Amana are all highly recognizable Whirlpool brands.
Kenmore Home Appliance Repair
Currently manufactured by Whirlpool and LG, Kenmore has been a pioneer in home appliances since day one. Sears, Roebuck and Company debuted a Kenmore four-drawer drop feed sewing machine in 1913 and a washing machine in 1927. The brand retained its momentum over the years, eventually becoming the leading Sears household appliance brand.
Sears Home Appliance Repair
Established in 1886, Sears was among the first retailers to sell appliances. You can find brands including KitchenAid and LG at stores nationwide.
Amana Home Appliance Repair
Amana products are manufactured by the Whirlpool Corporation today, but that was not always the case. Originally operating as the Electrical Equipment Company after being founded in 1934, Amana business ownership changed hands to a for-profit organization formed by the seven Amana villages in Iowa. Then, when it was sold in 1950, the company was renamed Amana Refrigeration.
GE Home Appliance Repair
GE Appliances is a powerhouse in the industry and ranks as one of the largest appliance brands nationwide. The company operates out of a 1,000-acre manufacturing facility in Louisville, Kentucky and produces Profile, Haier, Hotpoint and Monogram brands in addition to its own namesake appliances.
LG Home Appliance Repair
You may have heard the catchy tagline “Life’s good” during LG television commercials. Life certainly is good for the company, with Consumer Reports rating its washing machine and dryers as the most reliable brand. LG got its start in Korea, introducing the first refrigerator in that market in 1965.
Samsung Home Appliance Repair
Samsung manufactures a robust lineup of electronics including household appliances and is known as a technical pioneer. In fact, the Good Housekeeping Institute recognized the Samsung Family Home Hub – complete with Wi-Fi connectivity and smart voice assistant – as a top refrigerator model.
Buffalo Grove’s #1 Choice of In-Home Kitchen & Laundry Appliance Repair
When food is spoiling you want a Buffalo Grove repair specialist that will get your fridge repaired on the same day.
- Bottom Freezer
Our Buffalo Grove technicians repair all types of gas and electric washing machines.
Iceboxes were the original refrigerators, with the first appliance recorded in 1748. Advances in technology led to the introduction of electric refrigerators in the 1930s. Most modern refrigerators should last about 15 years.
Common refrigerator repairs include thermostat, ice maker motor module and/or water inlet valve and electronic control board replacement.
While the sight of water leaking from beneath your refrigerator can be alarming, there may be an easy fix. Using a turkey baster, flush the defrost drain with warm water and watch the refrigerator to see if doing so takes care of the leaking.
Power surges can damage your refrigerator’s electronic control board and cause it to stop working entirely. If this is the case, your best bet is to call in an expert. You may need to replace the appliance.
An excessively low refrigerator temperature can be too much of a good thing, resulting in spoiled or frozen food. You can help prevent this issue by periodically adjusting temperature setting to ensure it is set at the optimum level.
With proper maintenance such as cleaning the coils, freezers can last as long as 17 years. Their longevity is due in part to improved efficiency. Modern freezers are also manufactured with features that allow them precise control over internal temperatures. A freezer that fails to maintain the optimum temperature may require a new thermostat.
Once considered a luxury, electric washing machines became a highly sought after necessity after World War II. A properly maintained washing machine should last an average of 10 years. To help extend its life, it is important to take care of your washing machine with measures that include using the appropriate amount of detergent, cleaning the tub on a regular basis and storing the machine on level ground.
Issues that may require repairs include malfunctioning timers, faulty water level regulator switches and motor problems.
Few situations are more frustrating than when you have a mountain of dirty laundry and a washing machine that will not start. Give it a bit of time to see if perhaps the motor overheated and the washer is waiting for it to cool down.
While the very first electric dryer made its debut in 1915, widespread adoption of dryers did not take place until the 1960s, when advances in technology drove down the cost.
It may not seem like a big deal, but cleaning the lint trap every time you use your dryer can contribute to a life expectancy of 12 years. The electric ignition and/or rollers, thermal fuse, drum seals and glides and dryer belt are the parts that most often need repairs at some point.
At some point, you may find yourself with a dryer that runs, but never heats up. A faulty thermal fuse may be responsible. You can help prevent this issue by cleaning the lint screen and refraining from overloading the machine.
Stove and Oven Repair
In some families, the stove is considered the heart of the kitchen. It is hardly surprising, then, that this appliance staple dates back to the 1700s.
Fortunately, stoves have a robust life expectancy of about 15 years. It is important to include the interior and exterior of your stove regularly. Keeping excess water away from knobs and dials is also a good practice. Typically, the issues stoves experience include clogged burners, defective elements and faulty igniters.
When the food you prepare consistently ends up either burnt or undercooked, your stove may be unable to maintain a constant temperature. You can attempt to diagnose this problem by examining the condition of the thermostat.
If you find your gas stove will not light, and you have already checked to make sure it is plugged in, the circuit breaker may be to blame. This type of repair is best left to a licensed professional.
