Devices are developed to carry out. They strive, every year, normally without too many problems. They're easy to consider given. The outcome is that when a device breaks down, you might be completely at a loss-- you do not understand how it works, you have no concept why it stopped working, and you definitely don't understand how to fix it.

What can you do? You can pay an expert to fix it, or you can repair it yourself and saveΕΠΙΣΚΕΥΗ ΟΙΚΙΑΚΩΝ ΣΥΣΚΕΥΩΝ cash. This post will supply you with all the details you require to know to pull your significant devices apart and after that put them back together in working order. But prior to you attack the fridge with a screwdriver, let's get some background information on significant appliances.

Most appliances operate on your home's electrical system: They utilize Air Conditioning existing from the circuit circuitry in your home. Small home appliances work on 110-120-volt circuits, and the plugs on their cables have two blades. Big or major appliances, such as air conditioning unit, clothes dryers, and ranges, typically require 220-240-volt wiring and can not be run on 110-120-volt circuits. Large devices are wired with a grounding wire; their plugs have two blades and a prong. This type of appliance must be plugged into a grounded outlet-- one with openings to accept both blades and grounding prong-- or grounded with a special adapter plug. All devices are identified-- either on a metal plate or on the device case-- with their power requirements in watts and volts, and often in amps.

Small devices are generally fairly basic machines. They may include a basic heating aspect, a fan, a set of blades, or rotating beaters attached to a drive shaft; or they may have two or three basic mechanical linkages. Repairs to these appliances are generally correspondingly simple. Large devices are more complicated-- one significant appliance, such as a cleaning machine, might have a motor, a timer, and a pump, along with different valves, switches, and solenoids. With this type of home appliance, problems can occur in either the control devices or the mechanical/power components. Failure of a control gadget may affect one operation or the whole home appliance; failure of a mechanical/power gadget normally impacts just the functions that depend on that gadget. When a significant home appliance breaks down, knowing how to identify the problem is as crucial as understanding how to repair it.

Due to the fact that major home appliances are so complicated, it typically isn't obvious where a breakdown is. (Many newer devices consist of electronic diagnostics that can be interpreted from the owner's manual.) The first step is to choose whether the issue remains in a control gadget or a mechanical device. In a clothes dryer, for example, the control devices govern the heat, and the mechanical parts turn the drum. Which system is impacted? If the drum turns, but the dryer doesn't heat, the problem is in the control system. If the dryer heats, however the drum does not turn, the problem is mechanical. This type of analysis can be used to pinpoint the kind of failure-- control system or mechanical system-- in all big appliances.

To learn precisely what the problem is, you need to check each part of the afflicted system to find the malfunctioning part. This isn't as hard as it sounds, due to the fact that home appliance elements collaborate in a rational series. Beginning with the easiest possibilities, you can evaluate the elements one by one to isolate the cause of the failure.

Repairing Major Devices

There are three really important guidelines you must follow when you try to make any type of home appliance repair work. Do not ever try to conserve time or cash by overlooking these guidelines. You will not save anything, and you could end up injuring yourself or destroying the home appliance.

Always ensure the electrical power and/or the gas supply to the device is detached prior to you evaluate the device to detect the issue or make any repair work. If you turn the power on ΕΠΙΣΚΕΥΗ ΟΙΚΙΑΚΩΝ ΣΥΣΚΕΥΩΝ to inspect your work after making a repair work, do not touch the device; just turn the power on and observe. If modifications are needed, turn the power off prior to you make them.


If the parts of an appliance are held together with screws, bolts, plugs, and other take-apart fasteners, you can most likely make any essential repairs. If the parts are held together with rivets or welds, don't try to fix the home appliance yourself. Call a professional service person.

In many cases, broken or malfunctioning device parts can be replaced faster and inexpensively than they can be fixed by you or a SERVICE ΟΙΚΙΑΚΩΝ ΣΥΣΚΕΥΩΝ ΑΘΗΝΑ professional. Replace any damaged or malfunctioning parts with brand-new parts made specifically for that home appliance. If you can not discover a precise replacement for the broken part, it's alright to substitute a comparable part as long as it fits into the old space. In this case, refer to the producer's guidelines for setup.

Device parts are offered from appliance service centers, appliance-repair dealers, and appliance-parts stores. You don't always have to go to a specific brand-name home appliance parts center to acquire the parts and service you require for brand-name devices, so you do have some shopping/service options. If you can't find a parts service center in your location, order the part you require straight from the maker. SERVICE ΟΙΚΙΑΚΩΝ ΣΥΣΚΕΥΩΝ The name and address of the device manufacturer are usually printed on the appliance. Make certain to offer the maker all the model and parts information possible for the appliance. If readily available, search on the Internet for replacement parts.Before you make any device repair work, ensure the device is getting power. Absence of power is the most typical reason for home appliance failure. Prior to you begin the testing and diagnosis procedure, take these initial actions:

Inspect to make sure that the home appliance is properly and securely plugged in which the cord, the plug, and the outlet are working appropriately. To identify whether an outlet is working, evaluate it with a voltage tester.

Check to ensure the merges and/or breaker that control the circuit have not blown or tripped. There may be more than one electrical entrance panel for your house, specifically for 220-240-volt home appliances such as varieties and air conditioners. Look for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers at both the main panel and the separate panel.

Inspect to make certain merges and/or breakers in the appliance itself are not blown or tripped. Push the reset buttons to restore power to devices such as washers, dryers, and varieties. Some varieties have different plug-type merges for oven operation; make certain these merges have not blown.

If the appliance utilizes gas or water, check to ensure it is receiving a sufficient supply.

Check the owner's handbook for the device. Lots of manufacturers consist of helpful problem/solution repairing charts. If you don't have a handbook for a device, you can probably get one-- even for an old or obsolete appliance-- from the manufacturer's customer care department.

All right, now that we have the preliminaries out of the way, it's time to dive right in. Move on to the next area to discover how to disassemble a major appliance and the information on grounding systems.
