If you are in the slightest bit savvy with how your domestic appliances work, there’s a big possibility that you will be able to deal with a large percentage of typical faults yourself. The advantages of this are threefold…
Firstly you will obviously save money in being able to repair the equipment yourself, having no need to pay a service charge or call out fee. Secondly, you get to choose when the job is done, so no need to wait in for the repair man or arrange house sitters. And thirdly, you know exactly what has been done to your appliance, and have the satisfaction of knowing that the job has been done well.
But before you even think about carrying out repairs on any of your domestic appliances, you will need to identify the fault. You can get lots of help from the various forums on the Internet. The best way is to just type your problem into any of the major search engines, keeping it as brief as possible but remember to mention the make and model of appliance in your search. For example “My Zanussi F1045W washing machine wont empty”. This will help you to find other posts from around the Internet made by people with the same or similar fault as you have with your own machine. You then peruse the advice offered to these questions or you can simply ask a new question yourself.
Once you have identified the fault, it may well be that one or more of the parts on your machine are faulty and require replacement. The simplest and quickest way to obtain any domestic appliance spares is by ordering online from any of the quality domestic appliance spares websites in your country. Again, a quick search for the term “domestic appliance spares” or “domestic appliance parts” should give to plenty of options. I would recommend that you include the speech marks (“”) around your search in order to find exactly what you require.
Next you need to identify the spare part(s) you require in the website’s huge database. This can typically be done in three ways. Using the search feature within the website you can type your appliance model number or a keyword. Avoid using any part numbers as these tend to change with each retailer. You can also identify the part(s) you need by comparing your part with the images. So, for example, you can simply search for “washing machine pump” and look at the photo images to see if your pump is included in the search results. If all else fails you have the facility of calling the company using the free phone number that is often displayed at or near the top of the homepage. The website sales staff will be happy to help you to identify the correct spare part(s) you require, and complete your order on the phone.
Personally, I prefer to identify the parts I need using the features within the site. I feel more in control of what domestic appliance spares I am ordering.
So two or three days later once your spares have arrived, you are in a position to carry out the necessary repairs to your appliance. Once this is done, test the machine before using it and you’re good to go! You will no doubt have saved yourself a decent amount of cash.
The important thing here is.. be absolutely sure you are ordering the exact parts that you need so you don’t have to go through the expense and frustration of returning spare parts. Finally, if you are not 100% sure you are able to carry out the repairs to any of your appliances, please disregard all of the above and consult an expert technician.
