Zen and the Science of Appliance Repair

Not too many years ago, the American made clothes washer came in two pieces: a large, square galvanized tub and a wooden board with legs and a corrugated metal surface that usually hung from the local hardware store’s ceiling. In reality the clothes washer was the poor woman who had to spend hours lugging hot water to fill the thing, then more hours on her knees bent over scrubbing clothes, then even more hours hanging everything out to dry on the clothes line out back, hoping the sun would stay out and the birds stay away.

The art of washing clothes, cooking meals, cleaning dishes and keeping food cold has evolved into products that have made our lives so much easier and, frankly, things we can’t live without. Anyone whose refrigerator has lost cooling ability knows first hand how life almost grinds to a halt until the thing is repaired.

Finding a reputable appliance repair company, that hires and trains knowledgable,honest, professional repair technicians is as essential today as knowing a good auto mechanic. Sure, you can find someone on Craigslist or the local free paper want-ad section who will fix your machine for a song. But in this business, you get what you pay for. You want someone working on your appliances with world-class training, who can honor all manufacturer’s warranty work, and become a friend whose business you can trust to take care of any repair needs you may face for years to come.

There is a science to appliance repair long kept secret from the general public, buried in ancient wisdom and made known here for the very first time. It is not enough to know your fridge started leaking water when you turned on the ice maker, so you went on YouTube and watched how some guy with a screwdriver changed the icemaker for a new one. So you buy another icemaker, install it like the guy in the video, only to discover several hundred dollars later the thing is still leaking all over the kitchen floor. What they don’t show you on the video is the hidden science behind the repair. What they don’t show you is that a leaking fridge can also be a clogged up condensate drain that exhibits the very same symptoms as a leaking ice maker.

You can watch a video of a Cleveland Clinic surgeon replace a heart mitral valve, but unless you knowwhy the valve is being replaced, and how to do the replacement using techniques they pioneered, you could be making a costly mistake. Appliance repair CAN BE rocket science. That’s why you need a specialist.
