Luis came to the house and fixed my mom’s oven. We’re talking about what is at least a twenty-year old Whirlpool Electric Oven which was flashing a F5 error message. This was a potential disaster with the oven going down, because how would my mom cook the turkey later this month for this year's thanksgiving??? Fortunately, Luis was able to diagnose what was going on with the oven and he was able to get the oven working again by resetting and fiddling around with the oven's electronic control board. Wow!
You want this guy’s expertise. He is very proud of his work and he obviously very much enjoys helping people with their appliances. From my talking to Luis, found out that he has been in the appliance repair business for 27 years. Luis does a lot of warranty repair work for Lowes and Home Depot. Luis also actually has his main established family business, which is now run by his sons, up in the Valencia and San Fernando area up in Los Angeles, but Luis is now down here in San Diego County to expand his family business further south in the San Diego County area and also to personally get away from the awful Los Angeles traffic.
Luis is a good guy. He is a very straight-forward guy who will tell you what he is doing. And he will tell you what to watch out for as to possible future problems for the appliance that he is working on. As already mentioned, Luis was able to get my mom’s oven working again by resetting and fiddling around with the electronic control board, but he also told us to watch out for those electronics going bad again because it is old and therefore those electronics may eventually have to be replaced and he quoted how much that would cost. Fortunately now, my mom has her oven working again and she will be able to cook the thanksgiving turkey this year. Yea! Thank you, Luis!
Luis also took a look at the stovetop and diagnosed why one burner was not lighting and quoted a price for replacing the burners and the controls — essentially refurbishing the old stovetop rather than buying a new stovetop. For now, we can live with the old stovetop as it is, but we now have an option via Luis for getting the stovetop into better shape.
Anyways, for the primary oven problem, we paid a good affordable price to Luis for fixing the oven and getting his advice. The oven is still good, and it is now fixed thanks to Luis, and we now do NOT have to think about replacing the oven. Luis confirmed my thinking that putting in a new oven and a new stovetop would require cutting up the cabinet and countertop to fit and to put in a new oven and a new stovetop. Better to just repair what we have now. And we’re thankful that Luis can do the work.
Never met Luis before and was taking a shot in the dark by connecting with him via the Thumbtack app here. But can tell you that we are very impressed with Luis for his professionalism and expertise.
