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.

To help you determine if your fridge should be repaired or replaced, get free estimates from the best appliance repair technicians in your area.

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.

Mercados Mobile Appliance Repairs notified me immediately after writing up the problem I was having with my washing machine. The young man came out to my house that same day and evaluated the washer and knew what it was right off the bat! I was so impressed on his knowledge of the appliance and how quickly he fixed the problem. I will definitely use Mercados Mobile Appliance Repairs again!!

Jesus came for the appointment. He did not seem to know much about my appliance. He had to look online for guidance. I had trouble communicating with him. He could not make the repair.

We had this company repair several appliances in the house, including the dryer and gas cooktop. Within 4 weeks both are not working again. We have contacted the company several times and have yet to receive a call back. We ended up contacting another company who repaired both. Can not recommend this company due to poor reliability and follow up.

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.🌝🌝🌝🌝🌝

I would definitely recommend Mr. Appliance to everyone. They responded on the app quickly, and was here on time to repair my dryer. The technician Alex was great! He was very pleasant, professional and honest. He was knowledgeable and explained the problem to me in a detail. Before he left, he made sure the area was clean. He definitely took pride in his work. They have great prices and I would definitely call them again.

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.

Arturo managed to fix a very stubborn refrigerator issue. He went above and beyond to troubleshoot the issue and I am so grateful that he didn't give up; I would not have known what to do if he gave up on this job. He was punctual and definitely provided great value considering what an impossible issue turned out to be. I will definitely be calling on Arturo if any other appliance problem arises. Thank you, Arturo and George's Applicance Repair.
