GE Oven RepairThese days advertisers seem to rush the holidays along faster than you can see “Season’s Greetings!” It just might be that, in some cases at least, there is a method to this considered corporate madness. Take us for example. Each year we get a huge surge of calls to look into various Nassau County oven repairs just before the biggest feast of the year, Thanksgiving. In far too many of these cases the issues could have been adjusted months earlier.

Luckily our staff tends to have a variety of parts for most of the most popular brands of ovens and stoves in the industry at the ready. As a result GE, KitchenAid, Samsung, Viking, and Thermador oven repairs can be performed efficiently to keep the holidays on track. That said, it would be better for the stress levels of everyone playing host to their families Turkey Day feast if the repairs were made a month or so in advance.

Which brings us to today, just another day in October. The clocks have yet to be turned back, many leaves remain green, you might not even know what you want to be for Halloween, but now would be a good time to make sure your oven is getting sufficiently warm and your stove top burners are effectively working. If they aren’t we can get you back in working order in no time. Before it becomes an emergency.

Lynx Barbecue RepairWith the summer winding down pretty soon you’ll want to make sure you barbecue is safely stashed for the harsh winter weather. Then again maybe you are one of the bold Nassau County residents who continues to use their barbecue through even the coldest months. Either way there are steps you can take to preserve your barbecue and avoid the kind of pricey barbecue repairs that occasionally pop up when a grill is left out during the harsh winter.

Here is a great list of tips for making your barbecue last during the next several months:

  • Clean and Coat Essential Parts: Clean your barbecue’s parts thoroughly before storage. Once that is done coat the burners and the grill top with vegetable shortening before wiping dry. This will help you avoid rust.
  • Wrap Burners and Openings In Plastic: Avoid bugs making your barbecue into a home by wrapping openings and the gas line with plastic wrap or plastic bags.
  • Detach Propane: Detaching your propane is a good way to avoid fires but also great for saving gas for next year.
  • Read the Manual: Chances are your grill has specific storage recommendations, especially higher end models. Follow those instructions to avoid potentially very expensive Viking barbecue repair or repair for other high end brands.

If you do need some barbecue maintenance before the winter we are here to help!

Dishwasher Repairs

September 18th, 2014 | Posted by TimD in Appliance Brands | Appliance Maintenance - (0 Comments)

KitchenAid Dishwasher RepairAs is the case with most household appliances a dishwasher should last several years. The best dishwashers on the market from manufacturers like Whirlpool and KitchenAid can cost hundreds of dollars and therefor should serve you for some time. Still, the room for human error to cause damage to your appliance is very high. Between electrical power and the use of kitchen plumbing to provide water to the dishwasher there is a lot of space to mishandle the dishwasher.

By simply overloading the dishwasher you could suddenly require a vast array of necessary dishwasher repairs. More important however is that those repairs are definitely worthwhile. With the expense of one of these appliances investing in the continued use of your dishwasher is cost effective. By ignoring persistent issues with the appliance you could exacerbate issues to a point where they are beyond repair. This is why when an issue presents itself time is of the essence. Making repairs on your own is also ill-advised. The average person definitely does not have the technical expertise required to repair even small issues with their dishwasher.

Calling for Whirlpool or KitchenAid dishwasher repairs, or any brand for that matter, is luckily very easy for residents of Nassau County.

Whirlpool Washer-Dryer RepairThese days whether your concern is the environment or just your wallet you are likely looking for more energy efficiency out of everything. We look for fuel efficient home appliances whenever we buy new ones but there are ways to improve the energy efficiency of older units as well.

As experts on, among other brands, Whirlpool washer-dryer repair we understand that the washer dryer is one of the pricier appliance sets around. This month we have compiled a small list of things you can do to improve the energy efficiency of your washing machine and clothes dryer, no matter what brand you are using:

  • Keep Screens and Hoses Clean: The freer air can travel in and around your clothes dryer the faster clothes will dry. Clean screens and hoses that might get clogged with lint for efficiency.
  • Keep Water Flow Efficient: Similarly, the easier it is for water to flow into and out of your washing machine the better that device will work.
  • Do Not Overfill: Overfilling these machines can greatly reduce efficiency. Even worse the clothes do not get nearly as clean. Smaller more manageable loads lead to a more efficient machine and help avoid necessary washer-dryer repair calls.
  • Use Cold Water: There are specific detergents meant to work effectively with cold water. Save money and make your machine more efficient by employing these.

Keeping your appliances as efficient as possible is one of the best ways to avoid repairs. When in doubt give us a call and we can take a look at a malfunctioning washer dryer, (516)997-5599.

GE Appliance RepairAs Nassau County’s preeminent appliance repair company our staff is always on the lookout for major shifts in the appliance industry. Often news is slow to come save for new models that incorporate small technological innovations but there is a big news story looming. Currently a deal is in the works to sell General Electric’s appliance division to Swedish appliance giant Electrolux.

What that means for the industry is hard to say, though some appliance repair companies that focus solely on GE appliance repair may soon find their brand specific knowledge being pulled apart. Lucky for our team at American Repair Service then that we keep up to date on the widest variety of makes, models, and brands of all manner of appliances. Currently Electrolux appliance repair is in far smaller demand than GE but that could begin to change with this deal.

What we do know about the deal is that the deal being worked out is worth $2.5 billion. The deal would also put Electrolux in close competition with Whirlpool appliances, currently the nation’s leader in appliance manufacturing. While the news of a deal like this is huge for the appliance industry and for those who prognosticate about big business, our staff continues to focus on getting consumers the longest life out of their home appliances.

Ice Maker RepairIce is the one ingredient that is used across the board in almost every cocktail you can think of. To have a home bar without an ice maker then seems not just misguided but downright foolish. To properly prepare drinks for guests or just for yourself you will need ice, and a lot of it. This is why in spite of ice makers being standard on a variety of refrigerator brands some folks still insist on a separate ice maker for their home bar.

For cocktails ice is used as a coolant first but that is just its initial task. As the ice melts it becomes a fundamental part of the beverage in both positive and negative ways. Some aesthete connoisseurs even suggest that without the splash of water provided by ice your glass of scotch is simply not being enjoyed properly.

With more and more Nassau County residents excited to add a bar to their homes our ice maker repair service is more important than ever. Our expertise across the board for all of the top ice maker brands makes us the most trusted experts when it comes to Nassau County ice maker repairs.

Miele Dishwasher RepairOur employees are trained experts ready for any kind of Miele dishwasher repair you can throw at them. In fact our experts can repair pretty much any of the best dishwasher brands on the market. That said, we are always looking for ways to help our customers to more effectively use all of their home appliances. To that end we thought we would offer a few tips on ensuring your dishwasher runs smoother, beyond just calling us for a Nassau County dishwasher repair:

  • Size Up Your Dishes and Utensils: Many people find their dishwashers ineffective until they discover that a large tray or even a spatula left standing can block the sprayer arm of your dishwasher. Be sure to line everything up in a way that allows water to move around the machine.
  • Check the Filter: The filter of your dishwasher should be cleared regularly. Do not let food clog things up.
  • Water Temperature: Does your kitchen sink take some time to heat up? Run the faucet for a bit to ensure you are getting warm water into your dishwasher.
  • Use Appropriate Amount of Detergent: Too much detergent is not a good thing. It can leave a residue on your dishes and utensils. Adjust the level accordingly.

Thermador Oven RepairWhen using your oven it is important to keep an eye out for issues. While every kitchen appliance offers its share of potential dangers(electrical for example) the stove and oven can become particularly dangerous. Thanks to a combination of electric and/or gas these appliances can become like ticking time bombs in our homes. Of course, the right maintenance, safe operating, and a watchful eye, can keep you and everyone in your home safe.

Proper Installation should occur at the beginning of your oven’s life. Still if it seems the oven is moving more than it should measures should be taken to properly re-install. Even a small movement of your oven can release noxious and flammable gas. If issues seem to be occurring one of our experts can check this out as part of a Thermador oven repair. In fact our experts have a working knowledge of practically every major oven brand.

If you smell gas you should remove your family from the home immediately. This might not merely be an installation problem, it might in fact be a mechanical failure. We can perform a quick and safe Nassau County oven repair to ensure things go smoothly and everyone is safe.

Whirlpool Refrigerator RepairWhen it comes to Nassau County refrigerator repair there is simply no better option than American Repair Service. Every day we are making house calls assuring that the refrigerators of Long Island are operating optimally. Of course, cleaning your refrigerator, a good way to assure that the unit is working to the best of its ability is your job.

While some Whirlpool refrigerator repair, as well as that of other brands, can assure that there is nothing mechanically wrong with the unit, cleaning can help too. There’s a good chance that the food you worry has gone bad is merely past its prime. Cleaning it out can help you and your family guarantee a problem is mechanical and not just a long ignored expiration date.

Do not merely appraise the contents of your refrigerator. Instead pull everything off of the shelves. You would be amazed at how often there is something old hiding underneath some fresh produce. Once you have done that scrub down the interior with a heavy duty cleaner. Pull out drawers and wash them inside the kitchen sink.

Once you have cleaned your refrigerator thoroughly everything should work perfectly. If you notice smells, noises, or other issues it is likely a great time to call in the expertise of a Nassau County refrigerator repair expert.
