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.

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.

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.

Thermador Ice MakersAnyone with an ice maker as part of their home bar setup knows, ice is an integral part of any and all cocktails. That is why Nassau County ice maker repair has become such a vital part of our business, especially during barbecue and pool party season. Without the proper ration of ice cocktails cannot live up to their full flavor potential.

Whether you are getting ice from a Whirlpool ice maker or simply using the refrigerator’s attached ice maker there are some things you should know about ice and making cocktails:

  • Ice Is Fundamental: A cocktail is made up of four primary elements; liquid, glassware, garnish, and ice. Each of these elements play a primary role in how the drink is served and imbibed.
  • Good Ice: The quality of your ice will vary based on its purpose. Sometimes a few cubes(or rocks) is all a drink needs, other times there needs to be crushed ice to give a drink that slushy feel, still other times ice will merely be used to “chill” a beverage.
  • Fancier Ice: Some fancier bars get their ice from sculptors who hand carve the ice. This is serious.
  • Whiskey Stones: Some folks aiming to avoid diluting their beverages will use whiskey stones, basically stones stored in the freezer that will not melt. Many respected folks with astute whiskey pallets will actually suggest that a splash of water or water from ice is necessary to opening up the flavor of a whiskey.

So it turns out there might be more to ice than any of us thought!

Whirlpool Ice MakerA home should never be without ice. Not only is ice a vital necessity for frosty cool drinks for summers spent lounging in the yard or by the pool, it can also be a vital medical supply to bring down swelling. It is a lucky break then that we all have the modern luxury of enjoying ice makers.

Gone are the days where you have to rely on yourself or someone in your household filling up ice cube trays.
