How can I correctly assess if my appliance must be repaired or replaced?
As a golden rule, if the cost of repair exceeds half the cost of replacing the appliance with a comparable unit, you’re better off buying a new appliance.
According to Consumer Reports, appliances like dishwashers, top-freezer refrigerators and over-the-range microwaves should be replaced after six years; top-loader washers can deliver optimal performance for up to seven years before requiring a replacement; and gas or electric ranges, front-loader washing machines, side-by-side refrigerators and electric wall ovens must be replaced after eight years.
The reliability of an appliance also depends on its manufacturer; for instance, Consumer Reports finds that Kenmore, GE and Whirlpool are among the most reliable brands while those from LG, and Amana are among more repair-prone brands. However, you cannot accurately determine the necessity for replacement over repair without first diagnosing the problem in the appliance. Here's where our appliance service and repair expertise comes into the picture.
Our experienced technicians perform a full diagnostic check to correctly determine if your appliance can work well after a repair or it needs to be replaced entirely. We factor in predictable future performance and the costs of appliance repair Los Angeles to judge if there is any value in going ahead with the repair. If the appliance is found to be irreparable or you decide not to get it repaired, you only need to pay a service call charge, which includes diagnostics and a written estimate.
