Our team has assisted countless customers throughout Florida. Over the years, we have come across a multitude of faults including those that are particularly tricky to diagnose and repair. Overall, these are the most common appliance repair issues that we come across on a regular basis.

Fridge Not Cooling

A fridge that doesn’t get cold is no use at all really. Which is why we treat this as an urgent matter. Before calling a technician, you should check the temperature setting on your fridge as well as the condition of the condenser coils (on the back, top or under the appliance). If they are covered in dirt and dust, this could be preventing the release of heat and your fridge will not cool properly. Other possible causes include damaged door gaskets, faulty thermostat and even a refrigeration leak.

Ice Build Up In The Freezer

If the door on your freezer does not close properly, this can result in the formation of ice inside since warm air will find its way inside. Check the door gaskets before you do anything else. This could be a quick fix. Other parts that could be faulty include the defrost thermostat or the defrost timer. If this is the case, it is best to have a trained technician diagnose and repair the problem.

Dishes Not Coming Out Of My Dishwasher Clean

One of the most common reasons for dishes not coming out clean is when your dishwasher filters are filled with all sorts of bits of food. Your dishwasher won’t clean dishes if it is not clean too. Make sure you clean the filter after each cycle and perform a wash with vinegar every few months at least. You should also inspect the sprayer arms to find out if any of them are clogged. Clean them regularly to avoid excessive build-up. If you hear a hammering noise and your dishes aren’t coming out clean, it could be a faulty water inlet valve. If the dishwasher is not reaching the right temperature, this can also result in dirty dishes. In this case, the control panel, thermostat and other related parts should all be tested.

My Washer Fails To Spin In A Cycle

In the case of a top loader, there could be a faulty lid switch that causes the washer to fail to spin. There are also a number of working parts involved in the spinning process. These include belts and bearings. If your washer will not spin or drain, there could be a blocked filter or drain at fault.

My Dryer Is Getting Too Hot

If your dryer is getting too hot, this can be a major concern. Make sure that you check your lint trap and exhaust vent for a build-up of debris and dirt. If the warm air has nowhere to go, it will make your appliance run hotter. Other possible causes include a faulty cycling thermostat or heating element. These parts should be tested by a professional and replaced if need be.

Stove Knobs Are Broken

This is a more common occurrence than some may realise. Some stove knobs break more easily than others. Either way, if one of yours is broken, you will need a suitable replacement. This means that you will need to have the make, model and possibly the serial number of the appliance on hand so that a technician can order the correct part.

Oven Temperature Is Inconsistent

If you are struggling to control or maintain the temperature of your oven, it could be due to a faulty thermostat, heating element or there could be an electrical connection failure. With the right tools and equipment, a trained technician can quickly locate the source of the fault before performing repairs on the spot.
