Appliance Service Tips

Periodic appliance up-keep can increase the life of your appliances and improve operation.  Here are some appliance up-keep tips:

  • Ovens:  Don’t run the self-cleaning cycle within one week of a big dinner - ovens have a tendency to fail during or right after a self-cleaning cycle.

  • Dishwashers:  Run an empty dishwasher with a cup of white vinegar to eliminate odors and buildup.

  • Disposals:  Place a handful of ice cubes in the disposal. Add lemon, orange or lime peels and run disposal with cold water for 15 to 30 seconds. Continue to rinse with cold water.

  • Refrigerators:  Unplug your refrigerator and use a vacuum to remove any dust from the coils. This will help it run more efficiently and trim your utility bills.
