Big Chores, Big Risks

 Some people think they are highly capable, some actually are. Our technicians are highly trained before they go out into the field for a reason. It is necessary to have a lot of knowledge and safety experience to work on appliances. Then there are the people that try to do everything themselves. Some appliance work is certainly easy enough for someone untrained to take on. For example, if your light comes on in your refrigerator to replace the water filter, most anyone can get this taken care of on their own. First off, find your owner’s manual. Success? Secondly, locate the water filter. If you can do both of these steps, give us a call with the part number (located in that manual you didn’t lose). There are a few other tasks as easy as this that we suggest to the “DIY” crowd. But if your refrigerator has stopped keeping your food cold or sprung a leak, we would advise that you NOT try to redo the plumbing on your refrigerator or try to fix the refrigeration! Either of these is far better left up to a highly trained technician to avoid a flooded basement insurance claim or a trip to the hospital with refrigerant frostbite!
