I want to thank you for your quick response in getting the part I ordered to me. I received it on Friday 11/05 and installed it the next day. It works just fine and when my wife is happy everyone in this house is happy.

Thanks again,
Loren P.

Is Replacing Freezer Parts Yourself A Good Idea?

Home appliance repair can include freezers, but is it really a good idea to replace freezer parts yourself? This depends on your experience and knowledge when it comes to home appliance repair in general, and freezer repairs in particular. Many freezers contain sealed systems and may include freon or other chemicals, and so it is usually recommended to let a professional take care of replacing any freezer parts and performing any needed repairs. There are still ways that you can keep the costs of these repairs down, even when calling in a repair service. First check the warranty from the manufacturer. If your appliance is still under warranty then many times the freezer parts and the service will be covered, and you may not have to pay anything for the repairs. If the warranty has already expired, you will probably have to pay for the repair service and the freezer parts needed, but this still does not mean that you have to pay an outrageous price for this appliance repair help. There are steps that you can take to minimize the time needed for the repairs, and this will lower the overall bill.

When you call an appliance repair service to replace freezer parts or perform repairs, remember that you are paying by the hour normally. You will also pay more if it is after the normal hours or on the weekends, so try to avoid calling for repair help during these times if possible. Once you have set up an appointment for the appliance repair technician to come out, make sure you are prepared when they get to your home. Replacing freezer parts and performing repairs means that the freezer should be empty, so the technician can access it easily. Ask when you set up the appointment if the appliance should be unplugged a specific length of time before the repair time, to remove any built up frost and ice. This will allow the replacement of freezer parts to go much faster, and will save you money in the long run. The technician will need less time, and you will get your freezer back in working condition sooner.

One way to save on appliance repairs is to purchase the needed freezer parts yourself, and then just pay a technician to install them. Many times when a repair technician or service orders freezer parts you will pay more for the privilege. There may be handling fees or surcharges added, so that by the time you get the bill for the parts they are twice as much as they should be. Instead you can go online and order discount appliance parts, including freezer parts, and you will pay less for a part of the exact same quality. You may be able to arrange for the technician to install the parts that you purchase. If this is possible you will also see savings on your freezer repair bill. Even though you should not attempt to repair your own freezer because of the risky components, this does not mean you can not lower the costs for these repairs.
