Clean Your Appliances With an Earth-Friendly Attitude

June 17th, 2016

Sunrise In SpaceAs you walk down the aisle in nearly any grocery store, you’re greeted by high-priced cleaners that have every chemical mixture possible. Although these chemical combinations are effective, they’re not necessarily good for the Earth. Take a close look at some of the ways that you can clean those appliances without relying on chemicals. The Earth and your health will thank you in the end.

Open the Refrigerator’s Door

You may place a baking-soda container in your refrigerator so that odors are neutralized, but it doesn’t scrub the interior walls for you. Grab a spray bottle, and add an equal amount of water and vinegar to it. Shake up the mixture and scrub. Vinegar is very acidic, and it kills off germs and fungus with a very low concentration. Use a soft rag during your scrubbing process in order to protect the refrigerator’s walls from any scratches. Read the rest of this entry »

Summertime and Your Appliance’s Upkeep

May 17th, 2016

Ask your Milwaukee refrigerator repair professional about this one

Ask your Milwaukee refrigerator repair professional about this one

Your heater made it through the winter, and now you’re looking forward to warm days and relaxing afternoons without any appliance problems. Although summer is a time for vacationing and playtime, you shouldn’t overlook your appliances’ care either. In fact, it’s a good time to contact a Milwaukee refrigerator repair professional for their evaluation of your appliances. Put your appliances’ maintenance schedules ahead of everything else in order to avoid any costly repairs.

Clean Your Appliance Now

You may have vacuumed the house during spring cleaning, but your appliances aren’t always part of that project. Before the summer heat really kicks in, completely clean out the refrigerator’s interior. Make a mental note of any unusual stains or broken pieces. Pull the refrigerator out from the wall too. Wipe off the coils that reside across the appliance’s backside. These coils help the refrigerator remain cool on the inside by transferring heat to the exterior. If the coils remain dirty, they’ll overheat and possibly cause a cooling malfunction in the appliance. Read the rest of this entry »

Pinpointing When Your Microwave Requires a Service Call

April 28th, 2016

Even a built-in microwave oven might need Milwaukee microwave repair

In the past, reheating food used to require the use of the stovetop or oven, which took considerable time. By the 1980s, the microwave was slowly becoming the solution to leftover night. Place the food inside the appliance, add a time to the control panel and your meal is ready in a matter of minutes. However, your appliance may require a visit from a Milwaukee microwave repair professional at some point. Examine your kitchen for any of these symptoms that indicate some repairs are necessary right away.

Cold Food

You may have set the microwave for three minutes, but your food is still incredibly cold. There could be several issues at play, which requires a professional’s expertise to solve. An internal part, such as a diode, might be bad. This electronic component acts as a heating element within the appliance. Alternatively, you could have a bad door switch. If the appliance senses that your door isn’t properly sealed, it won’t activate any heat or radiation. Read the rest of this entry »

Your garbage disposal is a valuable appliance in the kitchen as it grinds up small food particles and flushes them out of your plumbing. Without the disposal, you’d have to catch these particles with a strainer and throw them out after each meal. Because you rely on your garbage disposal for everyday use, it can be obvious when it’s experiencing problems. When you call Milwaukee dishwasher repair professionals for an appliance evaluation, ask them about your disposal too. These professionals have experience with every kitchen appliance. Does your disposal have any of the following problems? Read the rest of this entry »

How to Know When Your Refrigerator Needs Repair

March 18th, 2016

Milwaukee refrigerator repairYour refrigerator can hold hundreds of dollars of food on any given day. That food is an investment that can spoil if the appliance isn’t properly functioning. Although you may call your local Milwaukee refrigerator repair professional to your home several times a year, you should also be a detective and observe this critical appliance between appointments. How do you know when your refrigerator is about to break down? Take a look at a few symptoms that the appliance can present before the food spoils:

Buzzing Sound Growing Louder

Your refrigerator will make some sounds during its normal operation because of the compressor and other components. However, you shouldn’t hear a persistent buzzing that seems to emanate throughout the home. Several issues can be at play when you hear buzzing. The compressor may be failing and simply making a loud sound because of that breakdown process. Your cooling fan might be dirty and spinning with an uneven angle. Your technician can locate the buzzing source and fix it before the appliance experiences further issues. Read the rest of this entry »

When It’s Time for Stovetop or Oven Range Repair

March 9th, 2016

Repairman Servicing an Electric Kitchen Range

When you purchase any major appliance, it always requires some preventive maintenance. Although you may call consistently for a washing machine repair appointment, you shouldn’t overlook your kitchen range either. A range is an appliance that’s a mixture of the stovetop and oven built into one assembly. If you’re concerned about your range not properly working, consider these signs that tell you it’s time for a repair:

Igniters Failing to Produce Flames

When you have a gas range, the burners making up the stove have hidden igniters. As you activate a burner, you’ll hear a subtle clicking noise. If this clicking and sparking isn’t producing a flame, it’s time to contact a professional for service. The gas supply may not be sufficient, the igniter might be dirty or another issue might be at play. Don’t allow the igniter to continually spark either. You’re releasing an explosive gas into the surrounding area that might be harmful. Read the rest of this entry »

Why is a Professional Necessary for Your Appliance Repair?

February 19th, 2016

Dave’s Milwaukee appliance repair can fix it

When your household appliance breaks down, you might think that a DIY project is in order. The repair couldn’t be that difficult, but the process often overwhelms amateur technicians. You may not want to call a Milwaukee appliance repair technician, but the benefits outweigh the drawbacks on several levels. Save time and money by consulting with a professional technician about your malfunctioning appliance. There might be problems that you may not realize are present.

Specialized Tools Availability

Modern appliances often have specialized tools for adjustments and other repair processes. You won’t find these tools at any home improvement center, however. Unique tooling is usually designed by the manufacturer’s workers. These tools may only be sold to repair technicians trained on those particular appliances. As a result, the final customer doesn’t have access to these tools because of their lack of training. Hiring a qualified repair technician means that the right tools are applied to the specific appliance. Using improper tools will only further damage the appliance. Read the rest of this entry »

What is Your Washing Machine Telling You? Simple Signals That Indicate a Repair is Imminent

February 3rd, 2016

washing machine repair

Call a washing machine repair expert to get it running right!

Your washing machine is a hardworking appliance that’s often overlooked when you are doing household maintenance. If the clothes are clean when you remove them from the drum, the machine must be properly working. However, there are obvious signals that occur over time that indicate Milwaukee washing machine repair professionals should be called.

When to Call for Washing Machine Repair

Your washing machine is asking for some tender-loving care when it has these common symptoms:

1. It Won’t Activate

You load the washer, drop the lid down into position and turn the timer on. This basic activation sequence usually results in an operable washer. However, a faulty lid switch can halt every washing sequence and leave you with dirty clothes. The lid switch tells the washer that it’s safe to operate the drum. Faulty switches simply shut down the timer’s circuits. A professional must replace the switch, so that the washer can work once again. Read the rest of this entry »
