What is Appliance Preventative Maintenance?

Much like your car, an appliance must also be maintained. Can you imagine how your car would run if you never changed the oil, replaced worn belts, cleaned out the interior or rotated your tires? You would end up with a gas guzzling machine that doesn't run well and it will cost you a ton when it does finally break down. When you don't maintain your appliances you end up with an appliance that suck up your electricity, runs and sounds horrible, even worse an appliance that breaks down, is expensive to repair. During a Preventative Maintenance Service I will inspect the unit to ensure proper operation, clean up the inner working parts, grease and oil the parts that need lubricated and, if needed, suggest minor repairs such as belt or hose replacement. The goal is to keep your appliance running as efficient as the day you purchased it. Keeping your appliances maintained will allow your appliances to operate longer and be more energy efficient. Although this service will not guarantee that you will never have a problem with your appliance in the future, it can help to prevent costly repairs, lower your utility bill and lengthen the life of your appliance.

Refrigerator:

I thoroughly clean the the condensor coils as well as all of the area surrounding it, allowing your appliance to "breath." As your refrigerator runs it collects dust, dirt, pet hair and other air born particles in the condensor fan and condensor coils. This collection of debris doesn't allow your Refrigerator to "breath." This will cause your compressor and fans to work harder than normal. Causing undue wear on the life of your compressor and fan. This also causes a rise in your utility costs. If left uncleaned this could possibly ruin your compressor.

I will make sure that your drain is free from debris to prevent a clog and water leakage on your floor. Debris can also build up in your drain. When your freezer defrosts the water goes into a pan where it is later evaporated from the heat of your compressor. When your drain becomes plugged your refrigerator will begin leaking water onto your kitchen floor. This often causes damage to your flooring and even damage to the ceiling in the room below.

I will check to make sure that your refrigerator and freezer doors are sealing properly so that you are not loosing cool air. When your refrigerator and freezer are leaking air it causes undue wear on your compressor and a rise in electricity costs. Having your doors properly sealed is a must. Sometimes the remedy is as simple as cleaning the seal or adjusting the door. I thoroughly inspect the seal for any rips, tears or cracks to determine if the seal is in need of being replaced.

I will check for excess frost and ice build up. Excess ice or frost build up may be indicative of a defrost issue. In most cases an owner will not notice that there is a defrosting issue until the refrigerator begins to not cool properly. In most cases this means that you have lost hundreds of dollars worth of food.

I will check your sealed system for leaks. Leaks in your sealed system can, over time, cause you to need a recharge of freon or, even worse, cause your compressor to fail. In addition, the freon that is leaking into the air is extremely harmful to the environment. It is very important to notice these leaks early on. Loss of freon means your refrigerator is not cooling properly and again willcause your compressor to work harder than normal. This could also lead to a complete loss of food when your freon gets to low to cool at all.

Finally, I  will check to make sure that your refrigerator and freezer are operating at the proper temperatures. I will also take the time to answer any questions you might have and give you advice on how to care for it until you have maintenance performed again.

I recommend that you have  Refrigerator Preventative Maintenance Performed at least on a yearly basis, more frequently if you have pets in your home, by a knowledgeable technician.

 Dryer:

I thoroughly clean your vent to the outside of the house. Thoroughly clean the duct and clear of lint or any other substance.

Thoroughly clean the Internal ductwork; Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal I will have to substantially disassemble the dryer, and thoroughly clean out the complete inside of your dryer.

I will grease the Rear bearings, check the Upper drum glide, Lower drum glide, and or the felt drum seal, Idler arm assembly,  pulley & Drum belt. and replace at the customers request, I do not charge an additional fee for changing these parts, I merely charge for the replacement parts

I recommend that you have Dryer Preventative Maintenance Performed on a yearly basis.

 

 

 Dishwasher:

Filter cleaning;

I thoroughly clean the filter, upper and lower spray arm that needs to be cleaned regularly.

I will check the pump and motor seals from particles that may be in the dishwasher.

Spray arm cleaning;

Over time, the small holes in the spray arm(s) of your dishwasher may become clogged with bits of paper, toothpicks, glass, etc. These will be thoroughly cleaned.

During a Preventative Maintenance Service I will also inspect the unit to ensure proper operation, clean up the inner working parts, grease and oil the parts that need lubricated

Your dishwasher will do a better job of cleaning your dishes after preventative maintanance.

I recommend that you have Dishwasher Preventative Maintenance Performed on a yearly basis.

Preventative Maintenance Fees:

I Charge a flat fee of $65 per appliance for preventative maintenance. If you have more than one appliance to have preventative maintenance service performed, please contact me for a multiple appliance discount

 Washing Machine:

Over time, the water hoses that came with your new washing machine may leak or burst. I will thoroughly check these hoses for any sign of wear or weakness. Often there's a small blister in the rubber of the hose, which could rupture. Most manufacturers recommend replacing the hoses every 5 years.

Note… If the hose ruptures, large quantities of water could gush from the hose. If it's the hot water hose that ruptures, the gushing hot water may scald anyone nearby.

Leveling:

Because your washing machine is so heavy, when it's not level, it can vibrate strongly during the spin cycle. If your washing machine is not perfectly level--with all four legs touching the floor--it can bang and rock back and forth, and even begin to "walk" across the room. This isn't good for the machine and may damage anything near the machine.

Your washing machine has adjustable, front leveling legs. I will fullyadjust the legs to the proper height, and level your machine.

Lint:

Most washing machines collect lint during the wash cycle and send it down the drain during the drain cycle. I  from your machine. thoroughly clean the lint from your machine so it performs at peak performance.

During a Preventative Maintenance Service I will inspect the unit to ensure proper operation, clean up the inner working parts, grease and oil the parts that need lubricated and, if needed, suggest minor repairs such as belt replacements (if belt driven)

I recommend that you have Washer Preventative Maintenence Performed on a yearly basis.
