Keep your appliances working all year.

In summer and winter break, you need to take extra care of your overworked appliances, with kids spending more time at home and college students coming home from Suffolk University and other schools.

Whether you're looking for a refreshing beverage from the fridge after a long day at Boston Boat Hostel or using your washing machine for all the towels and clothes that get you through from a camping weekend, your devices have to be in good shape.

Your home is your sanctuary, but it also works hard for you. The appliances in your house work hard all year long, but shifting seasons can put more strain on them. Refrigerators may get more use in Boston's 90-degree summer high temperatures, as thirsty or snack-prone kids and college students return home. Stoves and ovens, on the other hand, are put to work in winter and over the holidays, when temps can sink to average lows of 25 degrees.

We offer appliance repair professionals who are trained to keep the household appliances you rely on in working order.

From Bosch fridges to General Electric dishwashers, a few easy actions can help extend the lifespan of your appliance. Whether your appliance is new or you've had it for a while, read through the manual, watch a tutorial, or get professional advice to know how to best clean each appliance. It's also smart to keep track of when to repair rather than replace. Don't assume your breaking down appliance is past saving. Save yourself the expense of a brand-new appliance by properly cleaning and caring for your appliances.

You may find it easy to diagnose and fix your dryer on your own. A dryer might malfunction for multiple reasons, so finding the right source and area is an important first step. Dryers can experience problems from not stopping or starting to overheating or taking too long to complete a cycle. For dryer repair beyond what you want to attempt, many repair pros in Boston's are ready for the job.

Most dryers function the same, but higher-end models may have additional capabilities. The basic functions of a dryer include: A motor with pulleys and belts turn the drum. Gas- or electric-heated air blows through the device to dry your clothing. Timed thermostats control heat and speed. Dryers usually have a door and activating switch that will keep the dryer from starting if not closed properly. Sometimes the dryer needs to cool for a few minutes before it’s functional again. If you are having trouble diagnosing the issue with your dryer or locating the malfunctioning part, it may be time to contact a dryer repair professional in Boston, where the average cost to repair your dryer is $168.75.
