When to Call for Appliance Service and Maintenance

When to Call for Appliance Service and Maintenance

When it comes to appliance service, we all expect our appliances to simply work for us, and we don’t give much thought to it when they are working.

Sometimes an appliance can be easily repaired by the owner, but other times, it’s not a good idea to take on appliance repair and maintenance yourself, as it could make the problem worse, void warranties, or, worse, cause serious harm or injury.

Appliance Maintenance in Boston and Woburn areas

Excess Water

If you notice water pooling around your appliances such as a refrigerator, freezer, or washing machine, your appliance could be leaking. It’s important this issue is addressed immediately as it could cause further damage to your home.

Strange Noises

Buzzing, whirring, or popping are not normal for most kitchen appliances. If any of your appliances suddenly starts making unusual sounds, contact an appliance repair professional.

Strange Smells

You should immediately contact an appliance service professional if you detect even the slightest “burnt” smell coming from any appliance.

Excess Lint

If you’re seeing excessive amounts of lint around your dryer or in your laundry area, this could be due to ductwork problems. Excess lint is a fire hazard and, it’s important to have it checked by a professional, to avoid danger.


General malfunctions could be caused by something simple or could be due to a product defect. Rather than letting your appliances malfunction and using them anyway, call a repair professional to take a look.

Total Appliance Service and Warranty Coverage

In many cases, appliance repair and service, maintenance, and – if needed – replacement is covered by a warranty, when purchased from a professional appliance provider. Trying to fix these issues yourself, however, often will void those warranties.
