I have a Modern Maid oven, and it stopped working. I'm wondering if I could schedule a time for an oven repair person to come out and look at it. It is really old and was in the house before us 25 years ago. It may be the ignition for the oven. The grill is electric, and it works. The oven is gas.
Unfortunately, we don't do this brand because of parts issues. I could refer you to other oven repair companies that could help you if you want.
How often should the air ducts and dryer vent be cleaned?
The frequency of air duct and dryer vent cleaning depends on several factors, including the size of your home, the number of occupants, and your lifestyle. In general, it's recommended to have your air ducts cleaned every 3-5 years, and your dryer vent cleaned annually. However, if you have pets, smokers, or family members with allergies or respiratory issues, you may need to clean your air ducts more frequently. It's always a good idea to consult a professional to determine the appropriate cleaning schedule for your situation.
Is repairing or servicing an old appliance really a good investment?
When asking "How much is a new one?," you need to consider both the quality of appliance you can afford as a replacement and the option of having your existing appliance properly repaired by a competent professional. Appliance Service Company can diagnose and evaluate your appliance to determine if it's in your best interest to repair or replace it and make a recommendation accordingly. Also, another cost associated with buying a new appliance is the "aggra-dollars." That is, the aggravation and time spent that goes along with shopping for a new appliance—having it delivered, getting it installed and disposing of your old one. If you've experienced this joy recently, you'll realize that the aggra-dollar factor can be a very significant cost.
I have seen my outdoor unit’s fan go off and on when in heating. Is this normal?
Yes, this is typically associated with the defrost cycle on a heat pump and is part of the normal operation. It may also occur on certain model units when heat is running and the temperatures are slightly warmer inside and outside.
What should I do when my appliance breaks?
When your appliance suddenly stops working and you can’t understand why, unplug it right away. You may even want to switch off the main power circuit to be safe. Wipe up any leakage that may have occurred, such as with a fridge or washing machine but turn it off before doing that. It’s important to get the issue addressed right away so call a qualified appliance repair technician who can get out there immediately and address the situation.
