Mount Prospect Refrigerator Repair
While some refrigerator parts such as electronic control boards, ice makers, thermostats, and motor modules and/or water inlet valves commonly require repairs, a refrigerator that is well maintained and cared for should last about 15 years.
This appliance has come a long way since iceboxes – a rudimentary iteration of the refrigerators we rely on today – were first recorded in 1748. Electric refrigerators have been through many iterations and updates since they appeared on the scene in the 1930s.
You may be able to fix a leaky refrigerator yourself with a turkey baster. Use the cooking utensil to flush the defrost drain with warm water and keep an eye on the refrigerator. If the leaking stops, it is likely you fixed the issue.
Power surges can wreak havoc on your refrigerator’s electronic control board and cause it to stop working entirely. If this happens, it is critical to call a professional. They will analyze the part to determine if you need to replace the refrigerator or if it is salvageable with a repair.
Periodically adjusting the temperature setting to achieve the optimum level for performance can help prevent food from either spoiling or freezing. It only takes a minute and can save you a significant amount of money in wasted food.
Mount Prospect Freezer Repair
Improved efficiency has given freezers the potential to last 17 years. Make sure to take good care of yours to improve its chances. Proper maintenance such as cleaning the coils goes a long way in supporting its longevity. Modern freezers are designed with features that regulate internal temperatures precisely, so if yours fails to maintain the ideal temperature, it may be an indication that you need to replace the thermostat.
Mount Prospect Washing Machine Repair
Prior to World War II, electric washing machines were considered a luxury and were only found in a handful of homes. This appliance has become a staple and can last about 10 years if properly maintained. This includes storing the machine on level ground, using a moderate amount of detergent and cleaning the tub regularly.
Motor problems, malfunctioning timers and faulty water level regulator switches can all cause issues with this appliance.
Your washing machine may experience a delay in starting if the motor is overheated. The first step you should take is giving the machine a breather. It is important to let the motor cool down. Once some time has passed, try to start it again.
Mount Prospect Clothes Dryer Repair
Advances in technology made dryers more affordable for the general population starting in 1960. However, the appliance had been in existence since 1915. A few fortunate households owned it in the early days of its existence.
Proper treatment can extend the life of a dryer to 12 years. One simple yet effective measure you can take is cleaning the lint trap after every single use. Parts that commonly need repair include the dryer belt, drum seals and glides, electric ignition and/or rollers and the thermal fuse.
If your dryer runs but fails to heat up, a dirty lint screen or an overloaded machine may be to blame. Clean the lint screen regularly and do not overload the machine to prevent this issue from occurring.
Mount Prospect Stove / Oven Repair
Stoves, which can last 15 years today, date back to the 1700s. In their rudimentary form they preceded all other appliances.
Excess water can harm your stove if it gets into the knobs and dials, so it is important to keep them as dry as possible. Cleaning the exterior and interior can go a long way in preserving it, as well. Common issues include defective elements, faulty igniters and clogged burners.
Food that is consistently undercooked or burned is often a sign that your oven is incapable of maintaining a constant temperature. If this happens, you may have a faulty thermostat. Carefully examine the condition of the thermostat to see if you need to replace it.
Repairing a faulty circuit breaker should always be entrusted to a licensed professional. This issue can prevent your gas stove from lighting even when it is connected to a power source.
Fun Facts About Kitchen Appliances
The earliest ovens were discovered in Central Europe and date back to 29,000 BC. One of these ovens contained the bones of a Mammoth!
While the first known artificial refrigeration was recorded in 1748, refrigerators did not make their way into the home until 1927. The GE “monitor-top” refrigerator resembled the gun turret on the ironclad warship USS Monitor.
Some modern trends in kitchen appliances actually came into existence many years ago. The popular brick style pizza ovens of today are very similar to the stone and brick ovens used by Roman and Egyptian civilizations.
On the other hand, in some cases, technology has introduced conveniences past generations could not even imagine. In Colonial America, women had to modify the temperature of ovens themselves by constantly measuring the amount of wood and ash.
Fun Facts About Laundry Room Appliances
If doing laundry is not your favorite task in the world, you may feel better when you learn what people had to do before the invention of washing machines and dryers.
Early sea voyagers used the biggest resource they had – the ocean – to get their clothes clean. When laundry day arrived, they tossed their clothes in a tethered bag and threw them overboard so the ship could drag them through the water. Talk about a rinse cycle!
Soldiers who served on submarines during World War II did not have access to washing machines. They stowed their uniforms under mattresses, which were turned inside out and over to make them as sanitary as possible under the circumstances.
The first washing machine was invented in 1782 and consisted of a rod cage with a crank. The appliance had not made much progress by the 1851 debut of a hand-powered drum machine. Aptly named Thor, the first mass marketed washing machine was produced from wood and chains and hit the market in 1908.
