What’s That Sound? Signs That Your Kitchen Appliance is Breaking Down

November 1st, 2016

open-dishwasherWith three meals a day and special dinners created on the weekends, the kitchen is a hub of activity. You might operate three or four different kitchen appli­ances at once so that dinner is a resounding success. These appliances are constantly being used, but they’re often over­looked when it comes to maintenance. If you’re wondering if your kitchen appliance is failing, consider these simple observations that can confirm a breakdown. A serious failure could mean that a replacement is necessary.

Unusual Sounds

Any dishwasher repair professional will tell you that strange sounds from your kitchen appliances aren’t good. In fact, these sounds usually occur when a failure has already happened. Parts might be spinning loosely in an appliance where further damages are slowly occurring. Listen to your dishwasher, refrigerator and garbage disposal. Because you’re familiar with the normal sounds in your household, noticing new noises should be simple. Contact a professional when any sounds continue to ring out. Read the rest of this entry »

Fall Into Autumn: Prioritize Your Appliance Maintenance Now

October 18th, 2016

A Milwaukee dryer repair professional can repair other appliances tooCool weather in autumn prompts residents to bake comforting food and to enjoy loved ones at home. Fall is also a great time to concentrate on your household appliances. Summer’s fun has passed, and those loyal appliances may be in need of some professional maintenance. Take a deeper look at your basic appliances and their preventative maintenance needs. You want them to run smoothly into winter and beyond.

The Hidden World Behind the Refrigerator

Listen to your refrigerator with a quiet household. It should have a low-level hum that’s barely noticeable. However, a refrigerator that has a loud sound will require some maintenance. A repair professional will pull the refrigerator out from the wall, and he or she will vacuum out the coils as an initial task. Clean coils will only improve the appliance’s heat-transfer process while quieting the humming sound too. Your professional will also examine other core areas on the refrigerator’s rear side. Any water leaks or hose cracks will be noted and repaired before the appliance is pushed back against the wall. Read the rest of this entry »

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

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.

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 »

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.
