In this article…

We can combine several routines at one time: cooking, laundry, cleaning, etc. And of course, we can’t miss when they need maintenance or repair. Of course, we could pay attention to any specific issues with every home appliance, but here we tried to answer the most important question of how to define your appliance that needs repairing. And describe the pros and cons of choosing between repairing a damaged appliance or buying a new one.

DIY Troubleshooting

All home appliances have many common issues that everybody can face when using. Among the most widespread problems with dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators or dryers can have troubles with the display, water leaking, cooling or heating. Besides, you should pay attention if your household appliance doesn’t operate correctly or doesn’t work at all.

  • Every appliance makes noises when working, and it’s not an issue. But when you hear too loud noises or strange unusual ones, it could indicate that something is wrong with it. For example, after defrosting the refrigerant may cause a tapping sound, which is just normal. But, a newly appearing noise is a point that an appliance may need repair or at least it must be diagnosed. If the sound comes from your freezer, the sounds may come from a fan blade that is hitting something, which is not normal.
  • Moreover, another issue is different strange odours that mean an emergency case. For instance, a burnt smell could mean an electrical problem either with the oven, range hood, dryer or microwave. However, if you feel even a light gas smell, it’s necessary to contact specialists to define the problem and fix it immediately. Fix appliances CA has qualified and certified with “TSSA” certificates gas fitters who can cope with problems with any gas appliances at ease.
  • One more issue is when the breaker is down all the time. It can happen when the electrical system is overloaded. When you turn the breaker up, it consumes more energy.
  • But as a rule before contacting a repairman, you probably watched YouTube video tutorials or read the user manual on how to troubleshoot an appliance problem. It worked and you’re happy because you’ve saved money on repair costs. However, after a day or two, your appliance stopped working again. This malfunctioning appliance makes us feel frustrating.

Appliances that turn on but fail to function properly can be annoying, not to mention they raise your electricity bills.

Tricky Dilemma: To Repair Your Home Appliance or To Replace it With a New One

Upon our experience when we come to customers, we are often asked a question: what is the best to repair or to buy a new appliance. We’d like to pay your attention to another no less important issues that will help you to define your choice:

Professional Diagnostics

Discount and Rebate Programs

Another offer from our company is our rebate program. This program is available not only for our existing customers but for new ones. There are no restrictions by the type of appliance, this can be a dishwasher, a microwave, a range hood, or any other that are in stock.

Moreover, you’ll receive a warranty not only for the services but for a replaced part as well.

Moving to Another Place

One more important issue is moving. Upon the statistics, the main reasons for this are: 22% of Canadians moving do so because of work-related reasons while 20% are upgrading their home and another 17% move for family reasons. Canadians move more often than any other people. According to the statistics, roughly 4.4 million Canadians move homes every year. 50% of these people move sometime between June and September. 14% move in June and approximately one-third of them move on Canada Day weekend. It’s interesting to know that mortgage in Canada does differ from any other country, a five-year mortgage amortized over 25 years. That means the loan balance has to be refinanced at the end of five years, exposing the borrower to any increase in rates that has occurred in the interim. That’s why Canadians benefit from moving to another house or even places over the country. And here, the question of buying a new appliance or repair is crucial enough. Of course, if you understand that you are moving in 2-3 years, the repairing is worth it.
