My goal at

  1. Provide you with a complete understanding of your home appliances and how they operate, through video, illustration, and animation.
  2. Enable you to save money through correct diagnosis and repair your own appliances.
  3. Provide you with clear and honest information that’s easy to navigate and understand.
  4. Give you the information necessary to decide if appliance repair or replacement is the right option for you.
  5. Be your resource for appliance repair parts and a trust worthy (NO B.S!) source of information regarding new appliance purchases.

After more than 20 years in the appliance industry I’ve learned a few things… And after fixing the same basic problems hundreds of times, and answering the same customer questions… hundreds of times… I came to the conclusion this website would be a better and more clear way of passing on the information people are in need of.

I strive to provide you with the information needed to protect yourself from repair exploitation, save you money, and hopefully change the way you look at the world around you and how it works.

The fact is appliances don’t hold up like the old days, meanwhile appliance replacement and in home appliance repair has become more difficult to afford for many people. I want to supply you with the tools and information necessary to encourage a more self-reliant way of life.  For the most part appliance problems are easily corrected with a simple understanding of the basic electrical and mechanical components, systems, and principals that have made our modern lives so convenient.

While most appliance problems are easily identified and corrected; there are certain hazards associated with the activities described on this site, please review the safety page and legal disclaimer stuff page for further explanation. is primarily a free resource website that is funded through affiliate marketing (link advertising).  I have partnered with and for fast and affordable appliance parts with a great warranty and return policy on all parts sold, even electronic parts! This takes the worry out of self diagnosis and repair! These companies are highly customer service oriented and I am pleased to present them as a service to you.

I developed this web resource to help people with common appliance problems and love helping people!
Recently I have been honored with a fantastic response to my repair videos! In addition to my local service call load I have also become overwhelmed with specific appliance questions through Email and Youtube…
Unfortunately, I have been unable to find time to produce more videos or web content due to the large work load. I have decided to change to a donation based personal assistance system.

Upon sending a 20.00 donation you will receive a repair help email address link so I can give specific attention to your appliance problem.


If you are not satisfied with the help you receive or I am unable to help solve your problem simply ask for a refund and it will be issued no questions asked!
I am hoping that this will help to reduce the volume of questions to a manageable level while still providing an honorable service.
Thanks again for visiting my website and for your understanding!
