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 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.

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.

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 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. 

How long do fridges last?

Refrigerators can last 10 to 20 years, although the most common lifespan is about 13 years. If your fridge is acting up, consider its current age when deciding whether to invest in repairs or buy a new one. Common easy fixes include faulty thermostats, dirty coils and clogged drain lines. Thermostats and dirty coils can be generally be fixed for an average cost of $80-$100. Clogged drain lines, which usually cause leaks, can often be fixed for under $200.

More complex refrigeration repairs such as replacing a bad compressor or replenishing low refrigerant can cost more because of expensive parts and higher labor. A new compressor costs an average of $200, not including labor. If labor is an average of $75-$100 per hour, and the repair takes 3 hours, you’re looking at roughly $500. Consider the age and purchase cost of your fridge; investing $350 in a $600 fridge that is 8 years old may not be cost-effective.

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.

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 hired Quality Appliances Repair to repair my Samsung dishwasher. Asif came out within a couple hours, and knew exactly what to look for. He found and fixed the problem within an hour. Will definitely hire him again for any appliance issues. Highly recommend.

I recently bought a new house and the dishwasher wasn’t working, so I reached out to titan appliance pro on thumbtack. Mehdi came out the next day to check the dishwasher and fixed it very quickly! He was very friendly and quick. I would recommend Titan to anyone who needs appliance repairs.

We needed help over the weekend, and received punctual communication and service with final repairs during a follow-on visit the next evening. Availability over the weekend and evenings was key for us, and General Appliances Repair was able to accommodate us. We’re very happy with the service and value!

Khadeer was very professional. He diagnosed the problem with my washer and found that it would be a very expensive repair. His recommendation was to replace rather than repair which I found very helpful. His priority is clearly the customer and I will only call Smart Appliance Pro from now on.

Noor was kind enough to schedule a visit to my property to look at my fridge. He was upfront about the nature of the problem and provided me with guidance on buying my next fridge instead of sticking me with a 1000 dollar bill to repair something that would have eventually broken down. I will definitely use Noor for my next appliance repair.

Give people the option to have an appliance repaired with a simple fix. I was told that to fix my refrigerator handle that was coming off, I had to replace it for $310...not a good option for an 11-year old refrig. A friend stopped by and took the handle off and tightened the screws in less than 5 minutes. It is still holding strong 6 weeks later. Feel like I wasted $40 as it was not repaired and I almost ordered a new refrig which now I don't need with my friend's quick fix.

This is such a wonderful company. I was shocked to discover that my oven glass had shattered!!! I contacted the company late in the day regarding the situation and they came out the very next day to address the issue. The repair was completed, the bill was reasonable, and the workman was very kind and knowledgeable. It was much easier and cheaper than buying a new stove, which is what I feared. And, I was able to cook for Mother’s Day. Thank you RJ Appliance Services!!!

I needed an expert to diagnose my dishwasher, and either repair it or recommend that I replace it. My husband had already watched Youtube videos, taken apart our dishwasher, cleaned it, examined parts, and reassembled it, but it still did not clean the dishes. So, I called Same Day Repairs because of the many excellent reviews, qualifications, certifications, and experience of the principal/owner, and great price. The owner lived up to his excellent reputation. He showed up the same day, and diagnosed my problem with a straightforward experiment that he demonstrated and explained clearly to me. He priced the cost of repairs on the spot (wholesale part + one hour of his labor). Repairs were fairly low priced. But, it was a several year old DW, with old parts, and the likelihood of another breakdown in the next year was fairly high. (My husband had replaced the MOTOR the previous year). Although it seemed a bit foolish to continue to throw money into such an old DW, we were not ready to drop $1000+ on a new one either. But, the owner had no intention of recommending retail anyway. He pulled up the Sears appliance outlet website -- and showed me brand new 2016 models with the newest features for $300 to $600! I was stunned, so excited and so grateful! For the same price as his repair (or, depending on what we wanted, maybe a bit more), we could get a new DW. Furthermore, he treated me with the high level of respect and courtesy that a customer would hope for, and followed up with me the next day! What more could any customer want?

Our refrigerator and freezer temperatures were plummeting. I found City Star services in a search for local appliance repairs. Their rating showed excellent and so I called. Mr. Momand came the next afternoon and immediately told us a temperature sensor was the problem. He ordered a part that he thought would take a few days to arrive (because the refrigerator is an older model and parts for it are scarce.) He was actually able to find it the next day in Baltimore (we live in Alexandria, VA), called us and asked if we'd like him to bring it that day. Of course we said yes. He came, replaced the part, and fixed the refrigerator (A GE Profile model). The part was replaced yesterday. This morning, the temperatures had reset to their normal values. Mr. Momand cleaned the entire work area when he was done, was courteous and professional. We had thought we'd have to buy a new refrigerator. Rather, the reasonable cost of repair saved us several thousand dollars we would have spent on a new refrigerator. We recommend his services without reservation.
