Springtime is an excellent time to clean your whole home. With fresh air blowing through your windows, you have an excellent opportunity to get rid of odors, dust and dirt that may have built up on your rugs, upholstery, hardwood floors and furniture. In addition, be sure to take your cleaning to the next level by including your home appliances on your spring cleaning checklist.
Cleaning Your Dishwasher
Your dishwasher is probably filled with bits of food as well as hard water deposits from frequent use. Thoroughly clean the screens and filters on the bottom of the dishwasher and also wipe down the sprayer arms. You may even want to use a shop vac to get rid of food debris. For very difficult-to-remove lime or calcium deposits, consider cleaning with a commercial cleanser, such as CLR or Lime-Away. (more…)

For those who use electric stoves to cook, some problems can inhibit your cooking ability. While taking the necessary precautions when trying to troubleshoot, maintain or repair an electric stove is crucial, you’ll be able to diagnose most of the issues. Here’s a review of the most common electric stove issues:
Your electric stove won’t turn on
If you can’t turn your electric stove on, odds are the unit is not getting electricity. Making sure it’s properly plugged in should be your first step, and if it is, you probably have a defective outlet. Even so, it’s possible you have a blown fuse, tripped circuit breaker, or severed cable. If none of the issues mentioned above is to blame, contact an electric stove repair company. (more…)

For those who use gas stoves to cook, several issues can keep you from cooking. Fortunately, troubleshooting takes a few minutes. However, taking the necessary precautions is a must when trying to troubleshoot, maintain or repair a gas stove. The most common gas stove problems include:
The surface burner just won’t light
It’s common for gas stove owners to complain about surface burners that won’t light. The most likely culprits include clogged burner portholes or a defective ignition switch. Even so, you’ll want to confirm that your gas stove is correctly plugged in if it features an electric igniter. If the power is on and your circuit breaker hasn’t been tripped, a plugged-in gas stove that features an electric igniter is supposed to click repeatedly when the dial is set to light. If the stove does not produce a click, your ignition switch has probably malfunctioned. You should smell the gas if there’s a click but no flame, and if you don’t, then you probably have a gas flow issue. Either way, calling in a professional is the best option. (more…)

With 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.
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. (more…)

Cool 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. (more…)

As 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. (more…)
