Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you tell if your fridge is broken?

Use your nose — and ears — to tell if your fridge is broken and it’s time to call a pro. 

The first clue is whether your food is expiring too quickly. Your fridge should be at or below 40º Fahrenheit and your freezer should be at 0º, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. If temperatures deviate from these figures, the result can be food spoilage (from too much warmth) or even a frost buildup (from a faulty freezer). 

Other telltale signs that your refrigerator is broken are excessive noise, escalating electric bills and excessive heat from the back of the fridge.

If you think your fridge might be broken, don’t delay — contact the top appliance repair technicians near you today.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with an appliance specialist during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up a consultation or appointment during the COVID-19 pandemic is virtually, with no in-person contact. After messaging the appliance repairman, you can ask to set up a video chat or phone call to discuss what work needs to be done. Make sure to ask them how they handle payments, keeping in mind that paying in advance may be safer than handling cash or credit cards until the pandemic is over. Ask the professional what procedures and precautions they have in place to ensure safety during this time. 

How much does it cost for appliance repair?

While the average cost of appliance repair is $65, the price can range from $45 to $120. A technician may set a flat rate or charge by the hour. The average hourly cost is $65, although this can range from $40 to $95. 

Appliance repair technicians typically set their prices depending on the type of appliance, level of difficulty and other factors. Some pros may also charge a service fee or a consultation fee, and they might also offer discounts for new customers.

Is it worth it to hire an appliance repair technician?

There are several reasons why it’s worth it to hire an appliance repair technician instead of replacing the unit or doing the repair yourself. The first is to keep your warranty valid — doing a DIY repair on a home appliance may void some warranties.

Another reason is having the proper tools. While you may need to go buy extra tools to perform a repair, a technician will have the tools ready.

Hiring a pro can also help ensure a long-term fix instead of a band-aid solution, as an experienced pro will be able to assess the equipment for function.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an appliance repairman or specialist when social distancing?

If you decide to hire an appliance service specialist or repairman, check your local news for community guidelines and follow the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing. Discuss safety protocols with the appliance repairmen before they enter your home. And when they enter your home, stay at least 6 feet apart, don’t shake hands, sanitize all involved surfaces and use digital payments instead of cash or a check. 

If you decide to postpone the work, consider buying a gift card from them or paying for future work. This is a great way to give back to the community, as many small businesses and individual contractors are feeling the economic effects of social distancing. 

How can I find out if an appliance repairman or specialist is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

The definition of an essential provider varies based on state, city and local guidelines. Visit the official government website of your state or city to see which services are considered an essential in your area.

For more information on a national level, read CISA’s publication on critical infrastructure workers. However, note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Does an appliance specialist need to enter my home?

If the faulty appliance is located in your home (e.g., a washing machine, refrigerator, toilet, dishwasher, etc.), the appliance repairman will most likely need to come inside to complete their work. However, if your appliance is outdoors (e.g., a grill, outdoor kitchen, etc.), it may be possible for them to complete the work without entering your home and with limited person-to-person contact. 

Do appliance repairmen or specialists offer remote or virtual services?

You should contact appliance repairmen and specialists near you before hiring them for the project to see if they can offer their services remotely or virtually. Appliance repairs are typically done in person, but you can ask if it's possible to have a virtual consultation or an online walk-through. If you see that a pro is offering remote services in their profile, message them to find out what those services include.

Is it cheaper to repair or replace a refrigerator?

In some cases, it might be cheaper to repair a refrigerator — in others, your best bet is to just buy a new one. The decision to repair or replace a refrigerator will depend on several factors, but the most important is cost. If the cost to repair a fridge is much more than the cost of buying a new one, it’s time to replace the fridge.

Alex was a pleasure to work with. I’ve been experiencing a leak in my refrigerator that other repair companies weren’t willing to even come out and check. Alex showed up, figured out the issue and was able to fix it within the hour. I’d definitely use him for any of my appliance repair needs.

Wonderful experience!! I had several issues with other repair services backing out at the last moment and changing their rates from what they originally listed. I messaged AL appliance and he arrived within a couple hours. Took a look at my refrigerator - told me it was a simple repair and it just needed to be reset and to clean the filter. The entire job was done in 15 minutes - I paid him double his rate because it was great service and it was still less than other technicians had quoted me just for a site visit. I will Call AL Appliance first from now on!!

Matt is the unicorn of appliance repair people! He's the guy you hope to find early on in your appliance ownership life. He's smart and knows his stuff. He's articulate and explains exactly what is or isn't needed. He'll tell you the things to repair and when the machine should be sent to the recycling center. He works quickly and efficiently, you don't have to stand over him to make sure he isn't wasting time looking at the ceiling padding hours. My boss's friend was here while Matt was here and I believe has plans to call Matt for his own home. Matt is very responsive and lets you know when life throws a wrench and plans need to change. Then is quick to reschedule when things resume forward motion again. Bottom line, he's honest, reliable and we're planning to use him for other appliance maintenance.

I’m very glad that I have found honest and reliable appliance repair guys. I had an issue with my refrigerator and all my food after thanksgiving day started spoiling, Rick came quickly, made a diagnostic and fixed my fridge the same day, cause he had parts that I needed in his truck! Also he provided me with the warranty for 1 year. So I feel safe and satisfied! Thank you again Rick

I started to do my laundry late Friday afternoon. When it came time for my washer to drain and spin, it just sat there. Through Thumbtack, I found All Appliance, which was able to come the very next morning. Gary was courteous, knowledgeable and eager to remedy the issue. His appearance was neat, and he was masked, which is vital in the time of Covid. He needed an extra part and drove immediately to fetch it from the supply house. Within an hour of returning, he fixed not only the original problem, but an old one where the machine was not agitating sufficiently. I had wondered whether a 20-yr old machine was worth fixing, but he said newer ones, with all their electronics, break down more easily. My machine should now be good for a few more years. I am grateful to Gary for getting my machine working again. His price seemed reasonable, and since he also repairs other major appliances, I will definitely use him again and refer him to friends.

STOP, STOP, STOP!!! Before you hire this company, READ MY REVIEW. On October 15th my refrigerator freezer door no longer closed fully tight and snugly as it's supposed to do. Of course, I was immediately alarmed by this because all my food in the freezer would go bad if I don't address this problem quickly. So I jumped onto Thumbtack to find someone. I MISTAKENLY choose Urban Appliance Repair. Don't you do the same! When they reached out to me, I was very happy to hear that they could send someone out same day between 4-6pm. The technician Tim called me at 4:40pm to let me know he would arrive in about 45 minutes...no problem. He got to my home about 5:45 which is within the promised timeline and still no problem. He took about 15 minutes accessing the problem. When he told me what he thought the issue was, I proceeded to ask him clarifying questions to broaden my understanding of the matter. Apparently, I was asking too many questions at which point Tim told me it was late and he had to go home. In essence, he was telling my I don't want to answer anymore of your questions so you can either get the repair done or not...but, I have to go now paying customer who I'm here to assist. Now mind you...I'm paying him to be at my home and consult me ($59 fee) on my refrigerator problem. They also don't tell you the flat rate labor fee is $190. His remark was totally unprofessional and counter customer service like. Well Tim and Urban Appliance management, PLEASE FORGIVE ME for being a senior citizen who may not catch on so quickly and wants to inquire before she spends her hard earned money. I believe in an honest days pay for an honest days of work, but don't get annoyed with the customers who keep you in business. I suggest additional customer service training for your staff. Oh, and by the way, thanks for not helping to resolve this issue before it got to this.
