Stove RepairMany of us use our stoves and ovens practically every day. The frequency with which we use the oven or stove can give us a pretty cavalier attitude about the appliance. While having confidence in your stove and your ability use it are okay you should also be aware of the safety risks posed by it. To improve that awareness we suggest an oven safety check before each use.

If you do each of these things every time you use your oven you will be safer and, more importantly, more aware:

  • Check for Gas: If you have a gas stove the risk of leaks is an important consideration. Be sure to be incredibly aware of any odors that might be gas. If you find a leak call for oven repair immediately.
  • Make Sure Nothing Is In the Oven: Ovens should never be used for storage. Just in case, check inside the oven before you start preheating.
  • Check for Debris On the Stove Top: As the oven heats up food particles and grease on the stove can heat up and cause small fires or hazards that may burn you.
  • Position the Oven Rack: Getting the oven rack in the right position will help avoid burns later in the cooking process.

Dryer RepairsEmptying the lint trap is one of the easiest things you can do to make your dryer more efficient. As the lint trap fills up the dryer becomes less able to properly vent air and the entire process of drying your clothes slows significantly. By cleaning the filter every time you use the dryer you will keep things humming along perfectly, you will also make things much safer.

Dryer fires are responsible for thousands of house fires a year. That small fire can become exacerbated quickly and rage out of control. Suddenly major property damage and the risk of physical harm are very real risks. The lint collected in the filter is highly combustible. When combined with the heat being generated by your dryer thing can escalate very quickly. All of this can be avoided if you simply clear the lint with some regularity.

If you suspect that your dryer’s lint filter is not working effectively it should be a cause for immediate action. Our washer dryer repair experts can surely identify the issue and make repairs to ensure thing run smoothly and safely once again.

Washer-Dryer RepairsMost appliances come with their fair share of safety concerns. Whether you are worried about electrical fires or toxic gas leaks each and every major appliance in your home has its fair share of possible trouble. Luckily if you consider those issues and make considerations towards avoiding them you can generally keep your home, yourself, and your family safe.

The first step when it comes to ensuring your appliances are safe is to install them precisely as instructed. While some people avoid reading the directions that come with an appliance at all costs you would be wise to consult with them not only for the installation process but for daily use as well. Not following these instructions can be dangerous and it can also negate any warranties associated with these expensive appliances. This is a reason that those averse to reading and following instructions might consider professional installation services.

One of the benefits of our Nassau County appliance repair experts is if an improper installation is creating issues with your appliance we can identify and fix the issue.

Frigidaire RepairWorried that your refrigerator just is not working as efficiently or effectively as it once did. While our Nassau County refrigerator repair experts would love to help there may be a solution you could do on your own.

Home owners with pets have likely noticed that their pets hair and dander end up generating what seems like extra dust around the house. There is a really good chance that all of that dander, hair, and dust has made its way to the coils around the back of your refrigerator. By cleaning that out you will help to unlock the full power of your fridge.

Of course that kind of maintenance is not limited to pet owners. Dust can collect in the back of your fridge and slow down its effectiveness no matter what your situation. This is why regularly cleaning that area behind your fridge and keeping the overall dust buildup in your kitchen to a minimum is so important.

Those coils help move heat generated from running the refrigerator away. Once you have removed all of that dust, vacuuming is a good method, the refrigerator will be able to run much more efficiently. If problems persist our experts in Viking, Samsung, Frigidaire, and GE refrigerator repair, among other brands, are waiting to help!

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.

A search on the Web for images of people transporting appliances will reveal a world of stupidity. It is almost enough to make you tie your loyalties to the expert Nassau County appliance repairs offered by American Repair Service for life. The risks posed by carrying, strapping, or otherwise moving an appliance from the store to your home is just too absurd.

The good news is American Repair Service can make even some fairly ancient appliances run for a while longer.

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!
