How to Avoid Appliance Repair Emergencies

1. Do a test run with your kitchen appliances before the big day.

Test out your oven, range, cooktop, dishwasher, and ice makers before the family will be gathering at your home. This provides you enough time to schedule an appliance repair service, without the extra hassle.

2. Do NOT put turkey bones, egg shells, or turkey grease in your garbage disposal!

Turkey bones and these other items are definite No-Nos when it comes to your disposal. If in doubt, THROW IT OUT (in the trash.) Check out this blog post all about what foods are/aren’t safe for your garbage disposal.

3. Don’t self-clean your oven the day before Thanksgiving.

We recommend you perform the oven self-clean AFTER Thanksgiving. Appliance studies revealed that ovens will often break or not operate properly after a self-cleaning cycle is run.

It happens so often that we have an entire blog post dedicated to things you should know before starting an oven’s self-clean.

4. Free up space in your refrigerator.

If your fridge is filled to the brim with your Thanksgiving day ingredients, make sure you leave room for the door to close. If you can’t fit a cheese log in there, you have packed it to the max.

An overflowing refrigerator will keep the door from closing, and in turn, will not keep your food cool.

5. Don’t get locked out of your oven.

Make sure the lock on your oven door is functioning properly. Nothing is worse than a turkey or an oven full of food that you can’t get to!

6. If your dishwasher isn’t working properly right now, it won’t work right on Thanksgiving.

If you think your drain might be clogged, look for the culprits like chicken bones, plastic wrap, and broken glass. If you think your dishwasher is on its last leg, don’t wait until it is too late, get it repaired today!

7. If it leaks, fix it!

No one wants to eat a rancid turkey, so make sure your freezer is keeping your holiday foods frozen. As most ice makers are incorporated into the freezer, make sure that is working as well.

Sending your cousin or uncle down to the supermarket to get ice on Thanksgiving will not make for a pleasant evening.

8. Be an attentive chef!

Unattended cooking leads to oven or stovetop fires. Always keep a lid handy to smother flames. Should a fire occur in the oven, turn it off and keep the door closed. 

Keep anything that can catch fire, like oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, or towels away from your stove or cooktop surfaces.

Employee Ownership

“The key difference is quite simple. Employees own the business,” says the CEO, Steve Marino. “I think it’s the perfect model for a service business in Southwest Florida. What we offer employees is a piece of their business. When someone is vested, when they own a stake in something, they are more likely to stay. What does this mean to our customers? Our employees really care that every experience you have, every service that is done is TOP NOTCH.”
