Easy DIY Maintenance Tips

Clean stovetop drip bowls.

Remove and clean drip bowls from under the burner elements. Soak the bowls in a cleaning solution for 10-15 minutes. After washing, replace them on the stove.

Clean a dirty range hood and vent filters.

Clean and soak all metal-mesh grease filters in soapy water, or run them through the dishwasher. Replace your Charcoal or paper filters instead of cleaning them – they need to be thrown out.

Clean and deodorize your garbage disposal.

First things first: Turn OFF The Disposal. Then, look down the drain for any large possibly stuck items. Use tongs to remove blockages. Fill with a mixture of ice cubes and salt and pour down the drain. Run cold water through it for a few minutes and then turn on the unit. To remove odors, place a handful of citrus peels in the disposal, run cold water, and turn it on.

7 quick appliance maintenance tips

A few of the top things that require regular maintenance in order to keep appliances humming along are relevant to the machine working without interruption.

1. Clean refrigerator coils
This one seems to effect about half of refrigerator calls when the refrigerator just seems to quit working out of nowhere.

2. Overloads
Trying to save yourself from doing 2 loads in a washer or dryer is actually causing damage to motors, belts and other moving parts.

3. Recalibrating your oven temperature
You’ll need a pro level thermostat and your oven’s model number and the manual to pull this off. The procedure may or may not work. If not, just give us a call.

4. Keeping the noise level down
Did you know that you can do away with a lot of the noise and vibrations in the utility room by using rubber anti-vibration pads? A cheap solution for peace and quiet.

5. Keeping the dishwasher clean
Your dishwasher has a filter and it needs to be cleaned. If it’s clogged, water can’t make it to the spray arms for the top rack.

6. Quit slamming doors
If you keep slamming doors on appliances, you’ll end up breaking the lid or the door switch. Gently close the doors.

7. Stove burner that won’t turn on
Likely culprit here would be that spilled food has gathered on the igniter. On an electronic stove, a little ceramic nub is usually caked with food.
