The Benefits of Do-It-Yourself Repairs

If a belt breaks on your Whirlpool dryer, Appliance Man is betting you would rather replace it yourself for $25 than spend hundreds of dollars on a new machine.

Repair vs. Throwaway

These days, appliances aren’t getting any cheaper, so it makes sense to consider trying to fix a broken appliance yourself rather than invest hundreds or even thousands of dollars in a new one.   It’s tempting to order parts over the Internet or by direct mail, but if you come to us, we’ll help you find the right part, right away so you can repair the appliance yourself.   We also offer valuable advice to help get you started on your do-it-yourself repair project.

Here is a hypothetical example: If, say, your Kenmore washer stops working, it will cost $75 for a repairman to come to your home.  Add parts and labor and costs quickly begin to climb.

Do-it-yourself!  That’s the simplest, most cost-effective way to keep your appliance running well!  Another good point to remember is that repairing is recycling – it helps keep appliances out of the landfill!

The Temptation to Buy Online

Parts ordered online or via direct mail sometimes don’t fit, or are of low quality.  Another key point to consider is lack of customer service – customers ordering a part online will find themselves on their own when it’s time to install it.  Appliance Man has years of experience with parts as well as access to extensive computer databases to pinpoint the exact part a customer needs along with expert advice on how to install your new part.

All you need to do is call us with a model number or bring in a model number. If you don’t know the number, you can bring the part in and often times our parts experts can identify it, possibly even test it to make sure your part is bad.

Customers are consistently impressed with our knowledge of the industry and our dedication to customer service.  Our goal is to give customers access to an unsurpassed inventory of appliance parts at the best possible price while providing expert support and advice to today’s do-it-yourselfer.   And we are right here in your backyard ready to provide you with face-to-face support.
