DIY Refrigerator Repair

You have probably arrived at this site to get appliance repair related information. If this is the case, then you don’t have to worry about not getting what you are looking for.

In this particular post, we would like to answer one of these unanswered questions about, “Can I Fix My Refrigerator Myself”?

The simple answer to this question is Yes and No. It is “Yes” because you don’t want to waste your money on a minor problem you are capable of fixing at home. It is “No” simply because you can’t.

Why you can’t do the refrigerator repair yourself?

Refrigerators, just like other home appliances have become increasingly complex over the years. The basic functions are accomplished by compressed coolant, compressors, electric motors and metal tubing. All these components work together to expel heat from the interior and its contents.

However, it is not the fridge’s basic components that make home repairs problematic. Metal tubing is easy to understand, electric motors are not that complicated, compressors can be repaired easily, but the controls in some brands have changed from what we know as simple switches and dials to touch-screen interfaces and digital panels.

This means that problems with these digital controls could involve the repair of circuit boards and other specialized components. You may not be able to repair these controls at home. They require a technician with the right tools which you may not have at home.

Preventative refrigerator repair

Some of the repairs that people carry out themselves at home are not repairs at all. Appliance repair service technicians calls them preventative maintenance. So the bigger picture here is that it is unlikely you will conduct many repairs on a new, digitally controlled refrigerator. You need to contact an appliance repair company to conduct the repair. Otherwise you may cause more damage which will cost you even more to repair, if a repair is then possible.

Carpet Cleaning - Cleaning Doctor

Wondering if you should hire a carpet cleaning Doctor to to all the work for you in Cork or go out and do it yourself?

Lets debate the difference apart from the obvious such as having to go out and get all the cleaning equipment and cleaning detergents yourself assuming you don’t already have them in the house already. We debated some points with the carpet cleaning Doctor Cork, here are some of the points made and benefits of hiring a professional carpet cleaner against us doing it. Lets look at what they can bring to the table against your ability to do it yourself:


A good carpet adds beauty, comfort and style to a room but with time and traffic and general use, it loses that appeal with some stains, and general dirt brought in, its newness is gone. A professional cleaning doctor will be able bring back that new feel with stains removed and a fresh smell back in the carpet using their strong industrial machines.

A cleaning doctor provides skilled carpet cleaners with effective knowledge and best application in removing stains that you may struggle with especially with stains that are difficult to remove and limiting the amount of damage a lay person can do by using chemicals that sometimes make a stain even worse. Mixing chemicals with stains can often make it worse and result in permanent damage.


If time is our most valuable resource with a defined about of it per person, well you have to evaluate it against how long it will take you against how long it will take a professional cleaners. At a guess for an average room, it would take someone like you or me half a day to do an average job, a professional cleaner can do it in about an hour and have a better job done. Half a day’s labour for an ok job against I hour with a cleaning Doctor. I think the professional cleaner will win.

Reduced Wetness and Moisture

Professional cleaners use suction machines and dryers to reduce the amount of wetness and damp going in to the carpets, a manual job using more conventional cleaning methods done by you or me will take a room probably two to three days to dry out properly. Again the professional cleaner will win.


The cost of hiring a professional cleaner is very reasonable and cheap. If we compare what it would cost us to do it including our time as time is a limited resource, if it takes us half a day to clean a carpet say 4 hours multiplied by an average hourly cost, you will find it can be sometimes as cheap and cheaper to hire a pro carpet cleaner.

Dishwasher Repairs Sometimes Require A Pro For The Fix

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn
Dishwashers are appliances that often can have issues, believe it or not. All appliances can be in need of maintenance or repairs from time to time, but dishwashers definitely are at the top of the list. That’s why it’s so important that you do everything you’re supposed to keep the dishwasher in tip top shape. Chiefly, that means not relying on it solely for washing dishes. In other words, make sure you still do your part.

Not cleaning off and rinsing dishes beforehand can lead to problems of all kinds eventually. You don’t have to clean them completely, but again, you don’t want to rely on your dishwasher solely. There are certain issues that can arise with your dishwasher that you might be able to fix yourself. However, some of the problems are going to have to be left to the dishwasher service professionals. That’s just how it goes sometimes.

First of all, you have to think about the warranty. If you get in there and start tinkering around and only void your warranty, that’s not going to do you much good at all. Of course, maybe your warranty is expired, yet the repair can still be made instead of you buying  a new dishwasher. There are common problems that can be considered easy enough to fix with a little know how and a good tutorial. And then, there are more difficult problems to fix as well.

It’s also worth noting that there are a few common problems that are usually the culprit when it comes to a dishwasher that doesn’t work. Additionally, regular maintenance that is very important can help keep your dishwasher from breaking down. If a problem does arise, then you just need to try and figure out what’s wrong first and then determine what solution is best.

Consider Repairs When Your Fridge Breaks Down Before Buying New

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

Appliance RepairWhen your refrigerator breaks down, the first thing you want to do is make sure that it’s not going to just require an easy fix. Some appliance repair problems can be quite simple, but at the same time, they can also not be so simple. There are certain troubleshooting steps you can take with a refrigerator before you decide that it’s scrap metal. You can even make sense of calling a fridge repair company in certain situations.
Hey, a new refrigerator can be quite expensive. Mine recently started to break down, and I can tell you what I’ve done. Maybe it will help you make a decision. First, my refrigerator is older and wasn’t one of the most expensive models. It’s like a middle of the road refrigerator, not the cheapest either. When mine broke down, I was instructed by a friend to pull it out an clean off the back with a vacuum.
That’s just one of the things you can try. When you’re looking up troubleshooting steps, you are going to find out all kinds of things. You will likely even start to get an idea about whether or not it might be a good idea to call that repairman. Or, it could be exactly the opposite. You might realize that the refrigerator is most likely ready for the junkyard and needs to be replaced.

If that’s the case, then you’ll have to budget what you need for a new fridge. Are you going to buy one that is less expensive, or are you going to buy one that costs about the same or more? If you think you’re going to get any money for your current fridge, many people find out that they are pretty much out of luck. You need a scrapping license for things like that these days, and you’re not going to get tons of money for the fridge anyway.

Snake Plant

How to embellish your bathroom with plants?

Beautify with Plants

Why not bring life and color to the most commonly used rooms in the house, the bathroom? Though most of us never stop to think that a well-designed and sterile bathroom needs to be filled with life. The best way to make that happen is to install plants that grow well in such room temperature, with moisture and not to forget the low light. Works perfectly for some plants but definitely not all. We must be careful and do our research before getting plants for a bathroom.

Water, Light and Plants

One way is to look for humidity loving plants. Ask around and you will gather information sooner rather than later. It is better to start with window ledges and shelves, the higher the better. Small plants look great and provide more space for other tall plants. Among other florae like orchids, ferns, bamboos and the snake plant, my personal favorite is the aloe Vera plant. It works great in less sunlight which makes it perfect for the bathroom. They not only purify the air but also with their eye-catching glossy leaves help revamp the room.

Talking about color, orchids in white and pink being a small plant are best to brighten a bathroom by placing them on the sink or by the tub, keeping them at eye level. So you see there are many ways to use these plants, place them at places where they look best. All you need to do is look for the plants you like and your bathroom would look more refreshing and interesting.

Light among other things is also a main concern. As bathrooms have usually small windows, sunlight is hard to reach. So, make sure you look for plants that require less or no sunlight. Also use fluorescent light bulbs, as they help produce the wavelengths of light that plants need. Science amazes in many ways indeed. With these small tips you will be able to embellish your bathroom in less than a week, beautifying it with greenery.
