Washing Machine Repair or Replace?

They don’t make them like they used to, cheaper parts, metal being replaced for plastic, we’re talking about common household appliances.

Refrigerators, washers and dryers, microwave ovens and stoves are necessities of modern living, but getting one to last more than a decade is a challenge, in part, because of technology.

 

Fear not, Affordable Appliances have the parts to keep your appliances working.

Added features, such as water dispensers, programmable timers and thermostats, are making repairs costlier and, in some cases, more expensive than a replacement, but an environmentally friendly company Affordable Appliance Repairs have now launched there new website and extended a dedicated team of specialist repair staff to cope with the amount of repairs carried out around Worthing and West Sussex.

So, when do you pay to have an appliance fixed or replaced?

Local appliance repair experts from Affordable Appliance Repairs said, “If the cost of a repair is half of what a replacement appliance would cost, trade in the repair and buy a good refurbished model from us, or we have a range of manufactures for a new one.

In terms of appliance makers, they service all major brands, Hotpoint, Indesit, Ariston, Zanussi, Bosch, Creda, Miele, Hoover, Beko and many more.

When a decision is made to buy new don’t buy more features than you are really going to use the more bells and whistles it has, the greater the chance that one of those features will have a problem one day.

 

Don’t bin your old appliance and get a new one if you can fix it.

Cooker Repairs

Fan Element

The element for the fan-oven function will be located behind the fan cover-plate at the rear of the oven compartment, mounted so that it surrounds the fan blade tips. You will have to remove the cover plate to check the element. The element is usually held in place with 2 screws in the top bracket, and one or more small clips with screws. The push-on wires may not always be free enough to pull forwards for removal and re-attachment onto the spade terminals, so the oven may have to be removed from its housing to manipulate these, its always best to call a specialist to do this for you.

Door Seals

Many silicone door seals start to sag and deteriorate after a few years, and this means that there will be wasted heat lost and problems with time a meal might be cooked for, this waste not only heats up your kitchen needlessly, but costs you money, for the price of a new seal please call Appliance Repairs for a price.

Grill Element

These usually just unclip from a holder, and then pull out from a ceramic socket. If you suspect that your grill element has failed you should be able to remove it, and test with a test meter, some elements fail in a very obvious and spectacular way so again check with appliance repairs for the cheapest solution.

 

The main ingredients in detergents

By , April 2, 2010 11:42 am

Laundry ingredients are designed to work deep within the fibres of the clothes even at low temperatures, and generally contain the following ingredients.

Oxygen Bleach

Removes coloured stains as well as whitening stained laundry

Surfactants

These remove greasy stains from fabrics. They surround and lift the greasy stain and prevent it from falling back onto the clothes.

Washing in hard water is a more difficult environment for surfactants and prevent them from cleaning as efficiently. This is why detergents also contain a builder and why you need more detergent in hard water areas.

Builders

These remove water hardness, allowing the surfactants to remove the greasy stains

Enzymes

These are highly efficient and so you only need small amounts. They are great a breaking down and removing tough stains. They work like a lock and key mechanism: one type of enzyme being effective for a particular category of soils and stains. The best detergents use a combination of enzymes to get the best results.

Polymers

Take the stains which have been removed from your laundry and hold them in the water to prevent them getting back onto your clothes.

Perfumes

Ensure your laundry smells fresh and clean.
