GE Fridge RepairShopping for new appliances is a daunting task. With price tags that extend far above the thousand dollar mark your basic household appliances are pricier than ever. Once you finally bring your new fridge, stove, or other appliance home there is rarely a warranty that covers everything that could go wrong. That is, if you can get the appliance there at all.

It is almost enough to make you tie your loyalties to the expert Nassau County appliance repairs offered by American Repair Service for life.

Bosch Appliance RepairWith a record of dishwasher repair that is absolutely unmatched in the Nassau County area we have done our fair share of troubleshooting these appliances. Each time we go to inspect a dishwasher there are a few methods for troubleshooting that we try out first. In an effort to help customers we thought we would share some of these with you:

  • Check Fuses and Circuit Breakers: With any electrical appliance this is the first step. Fuses and circuit breakers malfunction all the time and can be easily fixed!
  • Inspect Wiring: Are wires connected to the dishwasher eroded in one way or another. The ravages of time or a mouse with the munchies can cause damage.
  • Check Out the Door Latch: The door latch is one of the most common issues requiring dishwasher repair. Slamming the door over time can lead to damage. Check that out next.
  • Look for Blockages: The motor and the pump of even the highest end dishwashers have been known to have blockages. These can be snaked out in many cases.

If none of these easy fixes help then chances are you’ll need some expertise. Luckily our staff are ready to help. Give us a call today, (516)997-5599!

Washer-Dryer RepairEven a washer-dryer that works perfectly is bound to age your clothing. While it is vital that you make sure you keep these machines running exactly according to factory standards it can also prove ineffective in preserving the clothing that you love so much. If you notice issues with your clothes you might consider calling in a little washer-dryer repair expertise. You might also consider some of the following tips:

  • Go Easy With the Bleach: Bleach sure does get things clean but not without a cost. Bleach damages every fabric, even white cotton, when used recklessly.
  • Don’t Overload: Jamming clothes in the washer may seem like smart time saving but actually it gets your clothes less clean. On top of that the clothes rubbing closely together can ruin the finish of any garment.
  • Mesh Bag for Delicates: Put all of your delicate garments into a mesh bag to protect them from the rough wash cycle. This is also helpful for small easy to loose baby clothes and socks.
  • Button and Zip Up: When you button and zip up your clothes you reduce the risk of them snagging onto other items avoiding tears.
  • Read the Labels: The labels on your clothes are guides. Read them and then, get this, you should follow those directions!

Refrigerator Repair

‘Tis the Season!

As we get taken up in the seasonal holiday rush it can be very easy to forget certain party necessities before you entertain. With temperatures dropping your ice maker in particular has likely gone underused in the last few weeks. When guests arrive however the pouring of cocktails will commence and pretty soon a few ice cube trays will not be enough.

This holiday season we are encouraging customers to get their ice maker repair in early. Whether you have an individual unit or one attached to your refrigerator now is the time to see if there is any maintenance that needs to be done.

If getting the ice maker repaired feels like a drag just remember all the excellent holiday cocktails you can experiment with. A festive sangria is a great variation that requires ice to be its absolute best. There is also a variety of beverages with festive holiday coloring and peppermint flavors. Each drink is a great way to impress guests and make the holidays a little more loose and festive.

In each case a functional ice maker will be necessary so research some recipes and make sure all of your appliances are in working order before your Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s parties.

Holiday PreparednessThose of us who do not often cook might be a little surprised to find just how unprepared our ovens and stoves are to handle food prep for a family of holiday revelers. For a lot of us that haunting realization came right before Thanksgiving causing a panicked call for oven or stove repair. If you managed to dodge that experience during Thanksgiving you will want to handle any necessary oven maintenance before it is too late.

With the holiday season in full post-Thanksgiving swing we have an opportunity to try and avoid some surprises for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s and beyond. One of the best things to do is test your oven’s temperature. If the oven is not heating to the temperature you dial in there are fixes that appliance repair experts can employ. Ignoring the possibility of such an issue is something you are very likely to regret. To check your oven temperature you can get a thermometer. If you are suspicious already and don’t have a thermometer American Repair Service can make a service call to your home to check.

Do not let your oven maintenance get the best of you this holiday season. Get things in working order before it is too late.

 

Stove MaintenanceAs the holidays approach many of us create lists of things we want. Perhaps the family is looking to pool their money together and get you some new home appliance you have always dreamed of. One thing to consider is whether the money might be better spent elsewhere. Sure your oven or refrigerator might have seen better days but if the new appliance is not a distinct upgrade you should question whether the move is necessary.

As the foremost Nassau County appliance repair experts we have spent decades getting the most out of appliances of all kinds. For some items you need only get a little professional maintenance to get another several years out of a barbecue, washing machine, or other home appliance. The results can save a big ticket Christmas gift for something you want as apposed to something that you simply need.

The best appliances on the market can go for hundreds of dollars or more. Instead of a new refrigerator you can hire our affordable refrigerator repair service and turn that money into an incredible vacation. That new oven could instead be a brand new couch. The important thing is assessing your ability to get more time out of the appliances you already have.

Stove RepairsWith our expertise on oven maintenance we have also picked up along the way some tips for being more efficient in the kitchen. Energy efficiency is not just about saving small amounts of money on monthly bills and the environment. The most energy efficient methods for prepping food this Thanksgiving can be great for moving food preparation along faster and avoiding over or under cooking the meal.

Here are some tips beyond stove repairs that can help things be more efficient:

  • Don’t Peek: If you keep popping open your oven door to check on the turkey or other dish’s progress cooking will take longer. Settle on the best cooking time and do not check in until you have hit it.
  • Clean Your Burners: Grime and dirt can reduce the effectiveness of your burners. Clean them before heavy usage to assure they aren’t working harder than they need to.
  • Lower the Furnace: Your home’s heating is likely your biggest energy cost this time of year. While you are in the midst of large meal prep you can likely turn the thermostat down a bit and rely on the oven heat to warm the kitchen.
  • Smaller Appliances: Items like crock pots, microwaves, and toaster ovens are energy efficient and often go unused for large scale meal prep. Instead of putting everything in the oven figure out ways you can employ your whole arsenal of kitchen devices!

If you are worried about the efficiency of your stove or any other appliance in your home give us a call, (516)997-5599.
