Dryer Repair Service Tips
Many of Same Day Appliance Repairs customers ask us for a few simple dryer repair service tips so they can maintain their appliance. You can find plenty of tips online. Also, there are books and magazines that are devoted to repairing household appliances, in addition to performing regular maintenance. Plus, if you are lucky enough to still have your owner’s manual, this could help too. But, we always advise our clients to ask themselves a few tough questions, such as “Can they handle this?” before beginning any repair project. Should you hesitate then you need to call a qualified repair service.
The first thing you need to do when contemplating dryer repair is to check the basics out. Tips for dryer repair go hand in glove with tips for repairing other appliances, and the first one is making sure the appliance is actually plugged in and switched on, this may sound lame, but you would be surprised at how many people make this mistake. Also, check to make sure that you haven’t thrown a breaker. Another simple tip is to see if the door is closed properly. As you will be embarrassed when you take your dryer apart or pay for a service call only to find out the door was not shut properly.
When it turns out the door latch is broken and refuses to stay closed, you can buy one for just a few dollars. Make sure you get one that fits your brand and check the size of your door catch to make sure the one you buy fits it. Take off the old catch and snap the new one in.
When your dryer doesn’t seem to be working as it should or is taking longer than usual to dry, first check the lint screen and clean it when necessary.
