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.

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.

If you have a broken appliance, get free estimates from the best appliance repair pros near you to figure out if it's worth hiring a pro to fix it for you.

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 appliance repair easy?

While some appliance repairs like cleaning the inlet filter on your washing machine or cleaning a smelly dishwasher are perfect DIY projects, others are better left to the pros. 

Certain jobs can be dangerous and risk extensive damage, such as repairing gas lines or leaks. Others require experience and know-how, such as balancing a clothes washer, replacing electric wires, rewiring appliances and more. If you’re not sure how to get it done safely, contact the best appliance repair technicians near you.

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.

How much does refrigerator repair cost?

Refrigerator repair generally costs a fraction of the price of a new fridge and shouldhave your appliance up and running again in no time. The problems your refrigerator is experiencing and the parts required to fix it will affect your repair costs. Where you live can affect labor rates, which will raise or lower your costs. Here are some examples of average costs:

  • Diagnostic fees: $50-$100. Repair pros often have a service call fee or diagnostic fee to account for their time traveling to your location with all their tools to assess the problem. If you choose to have them repair the fridge, most pros then credit this fee toward your repair cost.
  • Parts: $20-$500. A new compressor averages $200, an icemaker $300, and computerized components such as touch screens and control boards average $300 or more.
  • Basic repairs: $180-$400, including parts. This price range can include repairing the evaporator or fan motor.

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. 

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. 

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.

Excellent service, responded to my request for service almost instantly and was able to come out the very next day. Jesus was able to assess the problem quickly and obtain the part needed with the promise to return first thing the following morning to carry out the full repair. The following morning, George arrived on time and quickly got to work to repair the problem. Both George and Jesus conducted themselves very professionally and were clearly experienced and knowledgeable on the refrigerator appliance they repaired. I am extremely pleased with the pricing and the service I received. Repairs is guaranteed, they carried out a very thorough inspection of the whole appliance and can not recommend George’s Appliance Repair Service highly enough, what a pleasant experience and professional service. Thank you

Appliance Technician was on time, very professional. Unfortunately, the mother board on the washing machine was dead and he couldn't repair. He was unable to locate a new motherboard as machine 10 years old. So we have had to purchase a new washing machine.

Gerardo was excellent! He was running a little late from a previous appointment but was able to let me know ahead of our scheduled time & it was no problem. He quickly identified the problematic parts and fixed our dryer within an hour, at a reasonable price. He was very professional and arrived wearing a mask since we are now in the time of the coronavirus. I was so happy to was able to make the service call so quickly (he came the next day—Monday after I reached out on Thumbtack on Sunday). I highly recommend Gerardo to anyone needing appliance repair. Thank you, Gerardo.

Gerardo was excellent. I contacted several specialists on the app and he was the only one that got back to me. Gerardo came out and found the problem immediately. He ordered the part and came back 4 days later ( weekend was in between ) and fixed our range in no time. He knows what he is doing and is very friendly and polite. He did not try to sell me something and his rates are fair. I own a property management in the Disney area and will use him for all our houses and appliance repairs in the future. I highly recommend him and his work. Thank you again

Great guy! Very honest very helpful. I called him once because I had a problem with my washer machine. He was so nice and honest he told me exactly what to do to fix it on my own to save money. I followed his directions and I did fix it on my own. I called him on another occasion to fix the dryer which he came and let me know exactly what the problem was immediate. He showed up on time and charged a fair price. In this day and age it is very hard to find trustworthy reliable workers. I would highly recommend him to anybody that needs their appliances repaired. He answered his phone immediately and is able to come out and help you with the repair in a very timely manner. I won’t call anybody else. Great job thanks again!!!

He was honest and if it was out of his league he referred you to one company who would do you right to fix your ducts if clogged and ours was clogged and Ferdie Mitchell was open and honest he didnt have the tools to unclog duct works but he did refer us to a great company who are just as good as his appliance repair. This guy he specializes in duct work and was only $90 .Verge Mitchell was reasonable to come out quoted us $45 diagnostic test on our dryer. Hope this helps everyone and reviews help us know who's a great company or person to get ahold of and thumb tack site helps.
