Dangers of DIY Appliance Repair

March 6th, 2022

Have you considered or even attempted to fix your own home appliances? How did it go for you? There have been so many horror stories from people who attempted to repair their home appliances, with disastrous consequences.

Fridge and Freezer disasters

The consequences of attempting to repair your own refrigerator or freezer could be intense. Perhaps you’re dealing with a problem with the temperature—either it’s too warm or too cold. Messing with the controls and wiring could get your in serious trouble, and you might even break your unit even more severely.

Dishwashers, compactors, and disposals

These appliances can seem deceptively simplistic, but only a real technician should repair them. Compactors and disposals can be particularly risky to attempt to repair because if one turns on unexpectedly and your hand is right there, you could have to make an emergency trip to the hospital for some stitches. It’s just really not worth the risk!

Ovens and stovetops

Anytime electricity or gas is involved, it’s best to call in a professional to repair the appliance. There are too many nuances in your oven and stovetop system for any regular person to be able to fix the appliance aptly and safely. Leave it to the experts, please!

Washers and dryers

Everyone heavily depends on their washer and dryer working properly day-in and day-out, and it might feel tempting to try and fix yours when it breaks down to save yourself some time and money. But the thing is, without proper training, you’re not going to be able to repair it, and by messing around with your washer or dryer, you’re probably causing even more expensive repairs to become necessary.
