Centuries passed between the first recorded ice boxes in 1748 and the debut of electric refrigerators in the 1930. From the rudimentary version of the 1700s to the technological wonder of today, refrigerators have been through many iterations since due to advances in technology. The modern version should last about 15 years.
Electronic control boards, ice makers, thermostats, and motor modules and/or water inlet valves are the parts that most commonly need repairs.
If you find you have water leaking beneath your refrigerator, you can use a turkey baster to flush the defrost drain with warm water. It is important to then monitor the refrigerator to make sure the leaking stops.
Some issues are best left to the professionals. Power surges can damage your refrigerator’s electronic control board. It can stop working entirely after a power surge. In this scenario, you should call in an expert to determine if you need to replace the appliance or if it can be repaired.
It is wise to make a habit of periodically adjusting the temperature setting of your refrigerator. Food can either freeze or spoil if the temperature is set too low.
Freezers can last 17 years thanks to improved efficiency. Proper maintenance such as cleaning the coils plays an important role in aiding their longevity. It may be time to replace the thermostat if your freezer stops maintaining the optimum temperature. Modern freezers are designed with features that allow them to precisely regulate internal temperatures.
Considered a luxury before World War II, electric washing machines went on to become a staple in the home. Given their convenience, it is fortunate they can last about 10 years. Make sure you take care of your washing machine by cleaning the tub on a regular basis, storing the machine on level ground and using the appropriate amount of detergent.
Motor problems, malfunctioning timers and faulty water level regulator switches are common issues experienced by washing machine owners.
If your washing machine is experiencing a delay in starting, an overheated motor may be to blame. Patience is paramount in this situation. You should give the motor time to cool down. In most cases, this will remedy the problem.
Dryers made their debut in 1915, but they were not widely adopted until 1960, when prices dropped due to advances in technology.
Some dryers can last 12 years with proper care, which includes cleaning the lint trap after every single use. By cleaning the lint screen regularly and resisting the urge to overload the machine, you help prevent your dryer from developing an issue wherein it fails to heat up sufficiently.
Parts that commonly need repairs include the dryer belt, drum seals and glides, electric ignition and/or rollers and the thermal fuse.
Stove and Oven Repair
Dating back to the 1700s, stoves were one of the very first appliances, albeit very basic in design and function. This vital appliance has a life expectancy of about 15 years.
Keep your oven in good condition for many years by keeping excess water away from knobs and dials, and cleaning the inside and outside of the machine on a regular basis. Keep an eye out for common issues such as defective elements, faulty igniters and clogged burners.
You may end up with consistently underbooked or burned food if your oven is unable to maintain a constant temperature. Take a close look at the condition of the thermostat to determine whether or not this is the issue.
A faulty circuit breaker is a repair best left to a licensed professional. This issue could cause the stove to fail to light even when the stove is plugged.
