Helpful repair and maintenance tips for your large appliances

“If your refrigerator is up past that 10-year mark and the repair is more than half the cost of a new refrigerator, it might be time to upgrade.” – Chris Sublett, Vogel Appliance Service

Is your dishwasher sputtering? Is your icemaker crackling? Is your fridge on the fritz? How do you know whether a simple service call from an appliance repairman will fix the problem or if it’s time to take more drastic measures?
