How to extend the life of your appliances
Are you thinking about buying new appliances or simply want to keep your existing ones in good condition? As your go-to appliance repair specialists in Montreal, the team at Ateliers G. Paquette understands that household machines can be costly to replace. To help you, here are a few tips to help you maintain and extend the life of your appliances
Read and follow the owner's manual
Although modern household appliances are often intuitive and don’t require you to read the owner’s manual from front to back, there are still many benefits to giving the manual a good once over. It contains all the information you need to correctly install your appliance, as well as various operating and maintenance tips and advice on what to do in the event of a problem.
Referring to this information can also help you optimize the performance of your appliance. For example, the manual may recommend ways to position the cutlery and utensils in your dishwasher to ensure they get squeaky clean.
Perform regular maintenance
It’s important to periodically clean certain components of your appliances to prevent unexpected breakdowns and ensure they continue to work properly. For example, regularly cleaning the filters on your washing machine, dryer and dishwasher can reduce unnecessary strain on the motor. Furthermore, occasionally using a specialized product or solution to descale the inside of your washing machine and dishwasher can help prevent harmful limescale buildup.
Opt for repair
When one of your appliances breaks down, it’s a good idea to first find out if replacing the broken or defective part is enough to get it back up and running. Your owner's manual can provide a wealth of information and help you identify error codes and provide tips on how to fix minor issues. However, if fixing the appliance yourself seems too complex, it’s best to consult a professional to promptly identify and repair the problem.
