Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I hire the best appliance repair technician in Houston?

The easiest way to find the best appliance repair technicians in Houston is to search for pros online. By going online, you can view a list of the top-rated pros near you.

Read the online customer reviews, and take a look at the customer photos to get an idea of the quality of the professional’s work. Make sure the appliance repair technician you choose has experience fixing refrigerators, dryers, washers, garbage disposals, microwaves, ovens and other appliances in your home that need repairs.

Take time to also research the pros’ credentials. For example, you can visit the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation to see if any of the pros have a license. 

After you’ve narrowed down your search, ask the pros to send you free estimates so you can compare prices. The pro you eventually hire should have competitive prices but also enough experience, positive customer reviews and high ratings

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.

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 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. 

To find out how much it will cost to repair your appliance, get free estimates from the best appliance repair technicians near you.

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.

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. 

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.

I'm so delighted I made the right decision in choosing Eagle Eye Appliance Repair. Reginald was extremely professional and always on time when he scheduled any visits to my home. He was diligent in finding the problem with my washer and had it working in tiptop shape very quickly! I will definitely recommend this young man to my family, friends and neighbors should they need to hire an appliance repair serviceman. Thank you so much Reginald!!

I was super impressed with KL Appliance repair. They were able to be scheduled the same day as requested, and at the time I requested. Also - they provided me a 3 month guarantee on service done in case anything goes wrong. Highly highly recommend!

Our frig. went out over a month ago it stopped cooling and the coil in the freezer was freezing up another company tried to repair but was not able to. I contacted Top Appliances Repair they sent our Francisco within 2 hrs of initial contact. Diagnosed the problem returned the next day to install the part. However it was another major part. He confirmed that they had that part at their warehouse return later that evening to install it. Our frig was back in service in 24hrs from the initial service call. I couldn't be more happier and pleased with everything quality, professionalism, responsiveness and cost. Thank you Top Appliance Team!
Very nice, professional and thorough. Very comfortable having them in my home. I had two different appliances repaired and initially had to keep following up a few times to hear back about when a part was due to deliver and a diagnostic on the second appliance. That is the only reason I am giving 4 stars and not a 5. The small lag in communication is the only negative. Once that was overcome, everything was top notch. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Your appliances cost a lot of money and you want someone who knows what they're doing to repair them. Eric and ABE are extremely professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and have a 17 year track record of superb service. You can hire ABE with confidence for sure.

Sam was very professional, polite, prompt and a no-nonsense guy. He listened and provided the perfect solution for our problem with our refrigerator. He did not talk on and on about his years of experience or expertise, his work showed all of that. I will definitely hire him again for any appliance repair.
Wesley P.
Very quick to respond. Reached out Sunday, and Keith came out on Monday. He was also very upfront and honest with the situation. Our appliance was pretty much beyond repair, and he advised us to just buy a new one, rather than taking our money to try and fix it.

Eagle Eye contacted me right away. Their service man Reginald was right on time, helpful and fixed the problem quickly. He also alerted us to another problem (clogged dryer vent) that we didn't know was there. Price was fair and well worth it. I will definitely call them again if I need appliance repair.

The guys were very friendly and professional with masks, gloves and all the right diagnostic tools. They identified a problem not related to my dryer but to my electrical wiring and fixed that as well as my thermal fuse and belt. It was an excellent job and they even cleaned the area of lint and debris. I will keep their card handy for all my future appliance repairs!

On-time, Fast, and Professional. Friendly and take care of the task for the long run. He not only fixed my dishwasher but also he did extend the electrical cord so I can easily pull out my dishwasher in case I need. Also, he showed me how to do the floor for that area in the right way. Really happy with Solo Appliance Repair service.

Every thing about Kevin was excellent. I did not mark value because I did not compare prices with anyone else. My husband and I felt he was trustworthy and we wanted to hire him to do the job. We started with Thumbtack on Friday afternoon, chose KL Appliance Repair, and Kevin was at our home at 9:00 AM Saturday morning. He had to get parts and the job was finished by 4:00 PM. I have already given his cards to friends and posted a recommendation on our Nextdoor website. I will call him again when I need a repair.

Mr. Daniel is exceptional, to the say the least!! He responded to my Request for my dryer repair within minutes. He was very professional and punctual. I spoke with Mr. Horton on Monday, he can on Tuesday and everything was completed by Thursday. He the time to explain everything that was wrong and was very honest. Having an appliance go out can be stressful, but having someone that knows what they're doing to come out fix it - can be a breathe of fresh air. Thanks Mr. Horton!

I have an old Schaefer ice cream freezer that finally quit. Same Day Appliance Repair gave me a quote but it was a bit more than I wanted to spend. They actually found another Schaefer freezer on line that was working. They offered to help me replace parts to get my freezer up and running! It is rare that a business will help you out even if there is no revenue from you! This is what I call Great Customer Service! I would definitely use them in the future!

My 14 year old Whirlpool dryer stopped tumbling and few weeks later the washer was not agitating and making noise. Set up appointment with Reginald arrived on time. The diagnostic for both appliances $65. The washer transmission was gone and dryer needed a new belt. He advised could order part for washer about $200 and labor $125. Declined to repair, plus he advised has used washers for sale. Dryer belt replaced and working fine. Total $160 with diagnostic. Highly Recommend

If you want someone who is a true professional Dias, is the one to call for any appliance repair. Dias was on time he called me to let me know how long it would take to get to my home. Dias came in diagnosed the problem and did a temporary fix on my washer under he could get the part needed. Dias worked around my work schedule by coming over after I got off work which I don't expect anyone to do but he did! I recommend him highly!

Jesse came over for the estimate within hours of my request. He looked at our dryer and confirmed our theory that the motherboard was dead. He quoted a price for parts and installation that was the same as what we had seen the part itself quoted for online so we of course chose to go with his professional installation. He was able to get the part within 3 days (very important when you're without a dryer) and installed it quickly for us. The dryer is back up and running. I will definitely be selecting Kingo for my future appliance repair needs.

100% recommend these guys - and don't be shy to fully explain the situation to them at the start. It helps them get the job done right the first time and for the best cost. Mo asked some questions about my dryer issue and gave me a quick ballpark cost. We set up a time after the parts arrived and he was friendly, professional, punctual, and did a great job while we both wore our pandemic masks. He was also a pleasure to talk with as he did the repair: he explained and showed how certain parts wore out and I got to see the inside working of my dryer. This was my first service with Mo and I highly recommend him to others in need of appliance service. Quality work at a fair price and pleasure to work with: you cannot get a better combination.

I contracted for two jobs on the same day: My clothes dryer and my dish washer. Both were diagnosed thoroughly. The clothes dryer neede a new heating element and the dish washer needed a new control strip. The heating element was replaced and the clothes dryer works great. This was a job well done. If that was the end of it, I would have given 5 stars. But, sadly, the dish washer is another story. The control strip needed to be ordered and a price quoted. The tech said he would call back with a price. That was Saturday. Late the next Monday I had not received a call so I called him and had to leave a message. No call back. Tuesday I called again and spoke with someone whose said they would check it out and call me back very soon. Nobody ever called me back. The follow up service from this group is ZERO. That is why I gave 2 stars. Also, the charges are competitive if just a little high, but not unreasonable. The knowledge they have and the ability to repair all appliances is worth the cost. I just wish they could respect the customer a little more with a returned phone call.
