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. 

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. 

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.

I was beyond impressed with the service I received from JG Appliance. They responded & showed up very fast. They gave me good options, and made the repairs charging me less than I expected. Then they followed up with me afterward to make sure all is still going well... which it was. I could not have asked for a better experience. Very grateful for JG Appliance Repair.

Kevin communicated about arrival times and status of the part he had to order. He took time to let my German Shepard get to know him. He fixed my refrigerator and also put back a part I had taken off. I have added KL Appliances to my contact list. I will DEFINITELY use him again if I need appliance repairs!

Mo responded to my service request quickly and arranged an appointment. Thomas did an excellent job repairing my GE dryer. First , he was prompt , wore a mask and booties. Thomas diagnosed the problem and communicated the repair cost clearly. He had the parts in his van. I asked Thomas appliance questions and he was knowledgable, trustworthy and patient. I highly recommend MCM Mechanical!

I requested Thumbtack service yesterday thinking it will be after the holidays that I get any response from any pros. Got a call early today at 10:30am Thanksgiving day from ONNO and was pleasantly surprised they were available to check my 13 year old LG washer issue. Amil arrived at 11am. Talk about quick response time especially during the holiday. Amil came with a face mask and was quick to work assessing my washer and ran a full cycle and was able to detect my issue. The vibration and shaking issue was caused by a worn bearing that would be too expensive to repair and he recommended it was fine to just keep using it until the washer completely died. I appreciated his honesty. I recommend ONNO and will use them again for any major appliance issue. It’s just too bad LG doesn’t make the washer in the beautiful Cherry red anymore to match my dryer.

Last Friday, 9/25/2020, our oven stopped working. Due to this being the 2nd time this has happened in our stove's life, we knew it was the igniter. The issue we were going to have is that this was an older model Maytag and it is was already after 5pm. As I Googled for repair expert results, I somehow ended up in Thumbtack.. Anyway, long story short, this gentlemen contacted me within the first 10 minutes of me submitting my request, of three I "contacted". This gentlemen asked me the exact information he needed, and assisted me when I gave him the wrong model number. Never once "put-off". He was VERY communitive, and very upfront about the part, timing, costs. He was able to get my oven fixed Sunday evening, yes, SUNDAY, and was cheaper than the other two times I had this done (by a considerable amount). That was a first and this man has ALL my appliance business going forward, you won't be disappointed using him to help your get your home care needs completed.
