Small appliance repair

Small appliances play a big role in our daily lives. When shopping for microwave ovens, vacuums, toasters, mixers and more, choose appliances that fit your need and budget. When it comes to repairs, compare the cost of fixing to the cost of replacing the item.

When buying a major appliance like a new dishwasher, a great place to start is to look for the Energy Star label. We've anticipated some questions you may have.

Angie's Answers


Depends a lot on your current configuration. Rough numbers, $4-7,000 for the generator including autostart and automatic load transfer circuit box and master breakers (usually all come on the generator).

Installation (with pad already inplace and gas hookup - about $500-1000.

Electrical about $800 minimum, to maybe $2500. The $800 will get you a simple transfer switch installation but if you want some household circuits to run on the generator but others not, depending on how your current wiring is run, can run to $2000 to pull existing circuits to a new panel.

The problem is that all circuits that are going to be on the generator, unless you are planning to carry the entire household load, have to go to a separate circuit breaker panel which is fed off the automatic transfer switch, so they get power from either the power company or the generator, depending on which is providing power at the moment. That means the circuits running off either source have to be disconnected from your current breaker box, extended (commonly) over to the new box, and hooked up. All other circuits stay on your current breaker box, to run only off the public power when it is on. If the generator is large enough capactiy for your entire house load of course it costs more, but this circuit termination point moving is not needed, so electrical work drops way off to basically a connection box with the transfer switch.

A couple of words of advice - pay attention to weather protection, fire barrier between the unit and the house (including issues of overhead decks that can catch fire), automatic fire shutoff/suppression, and trickle charging from house power to generator battery. Also read CAREFULLY your power comopany rules on generator installation (commonly requires their signoff), any code restrictions on generators and noise in your area, and if your insurance rate will go up. (It definitely does if you have a fuel tank, I don't know if it does with natural gas-fired generators.)


Welcome to the world of Google ! Google this search phrase - dual fuel downdraft convection oven range

You will find a number of brands that make dual-fuel ranges with convection oven - Jenn-air of course, and GE, Bosch, Kitchenaid, Maytag, LG, Samsung, Wolf, Frigidaire, Thermador, Viking all sellin the US. Almost all major brands make this a dual-fuel convection oven range - find model(s) you like, then start checking with local vendors to see who sells them locally - the big home improvement box stores and Sears, Best Buy for starts.

However, the bad news - according to an article I found, only Jenn-Air still makes downdraft stovetops, although I did find one blog notation about a person buying a European Viking with downdraft. Basically the fan capability in downdraft ranges is just not enough to capture the odors and grease and steam coming off a cooktop, so the other brands all dripped it and recommend an over-stove powered vent hood. Most downdraft units had about a 1/10HP fan that pulled about 300 cfm - the same as a modern bathroom fan,, when to actually cause a reverse (downward) airflow over a range requires more like 1000 cfm or more causing a downward airflow of about 10-20 mph - which would make for a little private windstorm around your stove. People also found they did not like the reduced oven size to accomodate the fan unit.

Thermador and Dacor and probably others make behind the range vent units that stick up a foot or two and pull some of the fumes from the rangetop, though reviews say their performance is iffy and basically only affects the rear burners.

My recommendation - go with an overhead vent hood and eliminate the greasy buildup and high humidity in the kitchen that go with downdraft ranges - you will also pay about half a much as for a Jenn-Air downdraft unit.

was prompt, professional, and his products are great! I paid $410 including delivery for a reconditioned washer and dryer for my house, and couldn't be happier. He guarantees his reconditioned items for three months, and he seems very good at what he does overall. Give him a call if you're looking for a way to skip the laundromat on a budget - you'll be thrilled! :-D

They are pretty good. I have got some problems with the appliances they don't hold up to what I thought they'd hold up to. They were okay, they came in and removed the old

and hooked up the new one. They were very professional and courteous and did their job.
- Amanda S.

I wasn't satisfied with the product until it was fixed. They should provide a better quality of products out there. I've never had that problem with them before but I've bought other products from them in the past and they worked very well. I don't know whats going on because I have friends who are going through the same problem.
- Barbara W.

There pricing is reasonable compared to other vendors. Provide great customer service by helping me pick out different faucets and shower heads that complimented the tile used in my bathroom.

. It's a never ending circle with neither party helping the consumer. But the time everything is handled we'll have another $200-250 tied up laundromat expenses plus the expense of the $200 extended warranty. The bottom line is that what originally turned out to be a good decision to purchased the extended Waranty will end up being almost a wash financially because of both company's poor handling of the Waranty

’t do repairs but they will refer you and make sure that everything is being done properly. They just called us today to make sure that we are happy with what we bought from them. They have a good reputation. We had a positive experience with them buying stuffs. The customer service person is amazing. When we bought the washer/dryer, they were also the ones who hooked it up and installed it. They cleaned up after they were done. They made follow up calls to make sure we were happy and satisfied.

They delivered our purchase exactly as they promised.
