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! I requested repair for my refrigerator due to improper function. Not only did they fix the refrigerator but also cleaned the coils, performed maintenance and walked me through the troubleshooting for future potential issues. Great service and extremely professional! I will definitely recommend and contact for any future appliance maintenance and repair needs. Thank you!

David is very professional in working with customers. He attempted to fix my microwave based on the initial “problem” assessment which proved not to be correct. In the re-evaluation of the problem he gave an estimate which he agreed may not be the way to go compared to the cost of a new microwave. He only charged the minimum for the diagnosis even though he attempted the fix. He is now my go-to appliance repair person.

I have not used Thumbtack before and the whole experience was great! Came home from vacation to find our Kitchenaid built-in refrigerator was not cooling. It’s 18 yrs old so knew we could potentially have bad news=meaning time to buy a new refrigerator for $8-10k. David quickly responded to my request on a Sat morning and then my call. Gave him the refrigerator model number and he stopped at the parts store before he arrived so that he would have all that he might need to repair the refrig. Thankfully what he thought the problem was right and within 20 mins he had the new part installed all for under $200.00. I was thrilled! Overall the experience was great! Prompt, professional service for a fair price. Will definitely call Beach Breeze Appliance Repair again.

I was immediately contact by this company on 8/18 when I set out for this project to have our gas oven repaired. I spoke with the manager, Alex, who assured me the work would be completed properly and efficiently. I was told that after the diagnostic report was complete it would take approximately three days for parts to arrive and the work to be scheduled. It actually took one week for them to have the part needed to do the repair and schedule the appointment. At the time of the repairs, the technician replaced the supposed faulty appliance part only to discover that the issue of the oven not turning on still was not resolved. We were later told that it was actually a different appliance part that was needed which also cost far more than we had expected. We agreed to continue to use them to do the repairs because at this point we thought since they’ve already started the work to have them finish it. We were scheduled an appointment for Sunday however never had heard from them about rescheduling or anything. They just simply didn’t show up. The following day on Monday, I was the one who contacted the company to ask what had happened and I was told they didn’t have the parts by the time of the appointment. But as the customer, I was never told this and I waited for them to arrive all day. The technician came two days later on Tuesday to install the second appliance part. He was able to get the oven started initially and we thought we were all set but that was short lived. No more then 15 minutes after the technician left, we noticed the oven was not working, AGAIN! So annoyed at this point, I no longer wanted to have them work on it because I’ve lost faith in their ability to do the work and in their level of customer service satisfaction. Throughout the entire process I’ve been requesting that their manager, Alex, contact me directly since that is who I’d spoken to in the beginning. Alex was conveniently unavailable to speak on the phone but was able to text. Even though, I insisted that he call me and he would respond that he would ‘try’ to call me. He never did. Poor customer service to the fullest! I would not recommend this company at all mostly because of the ‘manager’ who they refer to as Alex. They have been inconsiderate of my time and my requests as a customer. However, when it came to receiving payment Alex was quick to request payment be paid immediately and even stated that if final payment was not issued then they would fined the technician. As if it were the technician’s fault. This is such a lack of ownership on the business part. Never again.
