Repairs are sometimes necessary, no matter how well you take care of your appliances. It is best to know what clues to look for, so you can call before a little issue becomes a big problem. Here are some signs that it is time to call a pro to repair your appliance.
Your Energy Costs Have Gone Way Up
Sometimes there are no funny noises or big obvious signs that something is wrong with a major appliance. That is why it is essential to keep an eye on your energy bills. If suddenly, your water bill jumps up significantly, a water-using appliance could be the culprit. Or if your electrical bill doubles, your refrigerator could be working overtime to make up for a malfunction. If you notice an unexplainable jump in your energy costs, call an appliance repair pro.
A Burning Smell or Smoke
As soon as you smell something burning or see smoke coming from an appliance, turn it off and unplug it immediately. Do not attempt to fix the appliance yourself. Burning usually points to an electrical problem, so it is best to leave this major repair to a professional.
Noises are usually the first sign of trouble when it comes to appliances. Every single household appliance can make strange noises if it is malfunctioning. Sometimes those noises can give you clues about the problem. For example, if your dishwasher is making a loud humming noise, it could be an issue with the motor. Or if your dryer is making a clunking noise, it could be a broken belt. Whatever the noise may be, it is time to call the repair pros.
Moisture around the appliance or the wall nearby the machine is a major sign of trouble. This could signal a leak or an issue with the humidity settings. Excess moisture can lead to mold or mildew, so do not ignore it.
