In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the risks associated with attempting your own significant repairs on various major appliances in your home. While certain minor appliances are easy enough to perform DIY repairs on without any risks, there are also several that require professional expertise for this sort of thing, and where you’ll be risking both your safety and additional damage to the appliance if you attempt repairs on your own.
At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re happy to offer a wide range of professional appliance repair solutions, including for vital appliances like water heaters, fridges and freezers, furnaces and more. In today’s part two of our series, we’ll go over a few other appliances that we typically strongly recommend against attempting DIY repairs on, plus the risks you’re facing if you don’t heed this advice and why you should leave these jobs to our team.
Because microwaves operate using high voltages and high amounts of power, they should be repaired only by experienced professionals. Attempting any kind of microwave repair without the necessary training could cause electrocution or other serious harm, so you’ll want to leave this appliance in the hands of our team here at All Pro Appliance Service if it’s not working properly.
The primary risk of DIY microwave attempts is receiving a charge from the machine’s capacitator, which could result in death if the machine is plugged in while you are troubleshooting. Other risks include fire or shock due to faulty wiring connections or electrical shorts within the microwave.
There’s really no reason to risk your safety with this one, so let us assist with all of your microwave repair needs!
Especially if your oven or stove operates using gas, trying to repair it on your own can be extremely dangerous. You’ll want to leave oven or stove repairs in the hands of our professionals here at All Pro Appliance Service, who are trained with working with gas lines and ensuring that they’re safe before attempting any kind of appliance repair.
Another risk you take when performing your own oven or stove repair is the potential for fire or explosion. It may simply need a new fuse, but with gas appliances it’s impossible to be certain of what could set off an explosion. Fires are more common than you might imagine when this type of work is attempted by someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.
For all the appliances we’ve gone over here, plus any others where you don’t have specific training on performing your own repairs, we always recommend leaving these jobs to the professionals and taking advantage of our exceptional appliance repair services. Not only does our team ensure the quality of all appliance repairs, they do so while keeping you safe and ensuring your appliances are working optimally.
