Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

George came over quickly. Fix our filter door issue effortlessly and for much less than quoted by others appliance repair companies(that's including the additional work of cleaning our refrigerator grill and condenser. He is fair and does quality work.

As every appliance is different, I appreciated how quickly Angel found the source of our non-working burner on our 15 year old electric stove top range. Repaired and checked it out all in less than an hour. VERY POLITE YOUNG MAN!

George’s ultimately couldn’t fix my refrigerator, had to ultimately rely on Samsung but Jesus was extremely professional. They were very responsive and professional and waived many of the costs when they determined they couldn’t fix our appliance after coming out 3 separate times to attempt different repairs. Can’t say enough nice things about this company. Will use Jesus again!

I submitted my request with the appliance brand and model and a very specific task to perform, I also noted that it was not my only need and other similar tasks were to observe. I was charged for the visit and the technician was not familiar with the appliance so he had to request advice from his headquarters, he was struggling for a simple task to disconnect the water filter and had to make many calls to resolve the problem of pushing forward the filter and turn it left. I added them to my list of not good repair company. I saw tutorials on youtube, which I offered him and didn't take, and I fixed the problem myself.

If I could pick all five I would add Value and Punctuality. George was GREAT. I called and he happened to be in my neighborhood. He was there within an 1.5 hrs. He identified the problem so it was easy to understand and charged me accordingly. I looked up the repair on google and George charged me exactly what they said it should cost. Friendly, cleaned up after the work and left bad heating element for me to review. He and his trainee were wearing PPE. I would highly recommend George's Appliance Repair.

Angel came to my house to repair my refrigerator was very professional very honest very clean and always on time. The refrigerator is working like new. He did such a great job with the refrigerator that I'd then asked him to repair my garbage disposal in the sink, he did an excellent job on both appliances. He worked very quickly and cleaned up after himself. Angel was a pleasure to have in my house to do these repairs he was honest gave a fair quote and value was excellent I would highly recommend him and I will use them again. It was great to have someone to answer all my questions . He did excellent work and I would highly recommend them.🌝🌝🌝🌝🌝

George was great! His response time was fast, he let me know the process of the repair and his schedule, I was able to tell him a few of the “symptoms” my dryer was experiencing and he came and found the problem within 45 minutes or less. He had to return the next day with the part and the actual repair took no time to complete. The part was pricy- Lawdty- but George didn’t price gauge (I was able to look up what I understood was the part and the price was in the ballpark range). He made everything easy. I will definitely call him for any other appliance help.

George responded to me quickly and gave me an idea by phone of what the problem could be with my clothes drier not heating up. He also gave me an estimate of the cost. George gave me an appointment for the next day and was very punctual, staying in communication before the appointment. George immediately diagnosed the issue being the heater and gave me a fair price before doing the work. The work was done perfectly. George was courteous, knowledgeable and truly a professional. I would recommend George's Appliance Repair to my friends.

Jose is a true pleasure to work with, and was very respectful and easy to talk to. He diagnosed my dryer issue quickly and showed me what needed to be replaced if I chose to do the job myself. I appreciated his honesty and decided to give him my business. He returned with the part the following day and resolved my issue to my satisfaction. He left a very good impression and I would hire him again for my appliance repair issues in the future. Highly recommended.

Marshall's response time was very fast. He called and provided a quick estimate to repair my appliance. I agreed to the price and I said to inform me of any changes. Later, I get a bill for more than double the original price. He charged me an arbitrary cost for a part, costing significantly more than the industry average price. I informed him I would not pay his invoice until I received the paid receipt for this part. I also discovered that he had not actually fixed my appliance and he had to return. He did offer me a "summer discount", but only after I expressed how upset I was. I never received proof that he paid what he said the part cost from the manufacturer. After a couple weeks, he demanded I pay him and sent me extremely unprofessional emails and texts. I also found out that he inappropriately texted my tenant asking why she was ignoring him in a flirting manner. Please be cautious when hiring him. Do your research and find out what the industry labor rates are before you agree to a price.
