In todays high tech appliance industry you can practically use the complex computers to launch the shuttle into outer space. We recently came across a Whirlpool refrigerator with a computerized ice lever indicator in San Tan Valley. These computers emit an infrared beam across the icemaker bucket into the receiver computer board. Very sophisticated for just shutting off the icemaker product right? This can be very troublesome as when they quick functioning properly the Whirlpool refrigerator ice maker will either stop functioning and not produce ice or they will continue to pump out enough ice for any large party and will not quick. The answer is to repair the problem and restore the proper communication to the icemaker emitter and receiver. Testing these items can be a little tricky. If you would like to call our company we can give you a good ballpark figure on repair costs for this problem. Some of the following model numbers are experiencing this specific problem. If your experiencing a problem like this and this is your model number just call us at 480-436-1733.
We just went out to the Copper basin community in San Tan Valley to check on a Samsung refrigerator that was not defrosting properly. When we arrived we found a lot of frost buildup on the evaporator coil, this happens when something within the defrost system fails and can no longer melt the frost on the evaporator. We tested for voltage from the control board down to the defrost bimetal as well as the defrost heater voltage was present so we checked the bimetal for continuity the bimetal had failed so we replaced it, problem solved. If your refrigerator is having similar problems please give us a call at 602-412-3133.

Unfortunately, dryer vent cleaning is a neglected maintenance item in most homes. Here in Arizona the dryer venting in most cases goes through the roof. Without some sophisticated equipment to run a camera up to the roof you cant really tell if this is a necessary expense. Our dryer vent cleaning costs are $135 for a single story home and $185 for a two-story application. One of the early signs of a clogged wall vent is dry time. When it starts to take far longer than it used to then it might be necessary. Call us at 602-412-3133 to speak to one of our experts about setting up a consultation.
Recently we received a call about a GE Dryer that was too loud to tolerate in the Las Praderas community In San Tan Valley. When we arrived we determined that the dryer had something stuck in the blower wheel housing. Many times little things left in pockets can cause the biggest problems in a dryer. When something gets stuck in the dryer blower housing it can restrict the free flow of air from the dryer heater. Then all the safeties that are built into a dryer to prevent it from catching fire will kick into gear. There are thermal safety switches that will burn out to prevent a potential fire. Once we got the unit completely torn down we found a couple golf tees. How they make it past the lint trap is a mystery I still cannot figure out. Once the debris was removed and the free flow to the dryer blower housing was restored the unit performed as designed. If you are experiencing a loud noise coming from your dryer give us a call at (602) 412-3133 before it causes more expensive damage

One of our customers who lives in the Vineyards community in Gilbert called about his dishwasher not cleaning or draining properly. This is a very common complaint these days. The chemical composition of the soap has changed and will not breakdown like it used to. The number one cause for dishes not cleaning properly or the dishes coming out cloudy is that the water is not hot enough. Always use your hot wash option on the dishwasher. In this customer’s case the unit has some stickers stuck down in the drain/sump area of the dishwasher. We removed the components and removed the debris from the drain pump area. Once we removed the debris we ran some citric acid through the system to kill any bacteria build up. Problem solved, on to the next repair. If your dishwasher is having problems similar to this give us a call at (602) 412-3133 to schedule an appointment.
We were called to a project in Windmill Ranch in Gilbert for a Whirlpool dryer that would no longer work. This was one of the computerized units that are controlled by a computer to better use energy. What I found is not uncommon these days, a dryer main control board that had a short. Once we determined that the power supply lines were all within specifications we traced the power right back to the source problem. We replaced the control board and the unit returned back to its original operation. Sometimes this can be causes by a power spike after the electricity when out. If this happens I suggest calling your power company for reimbursement of the repair. They are a business just like any other and have insurance for these types of problems. If your dryer is experiencing a similar problem please give us a call at 602-412-3133. Other models that may have the same issue are listed below.
A Client from Florence called in for a repair on his dryer. The noise coming from the unit was not bad but would get worse in time so it was just time to clear it up. Dryers can last a very long time if properly maintained. We still go out and work on some GE and Whirlpool dryers that are 35-40 years old. The Maytag dryers can go even longer. This unit we replaced the dryer idler pulley and belt, the rollers were ok at the time but the customer thought it best to replace them while we already had the unit torn down. Idler pulley replace, dryer support rollers new, the unit sounded like it just came off the showroom floor. If your dryer is having problems please give us a try by calling at 602-412-3133.
Recently we were called out to a whirlpool refrigerator ice dispenser not working in Magma ranch community in Florence.

We went to a call at Superstition Views in San Tan Valley for a Whirlpool Top loading washer. The concern was for a water leak, when I arrived I found that the unit did have a pretty good leaking while filling. This can happen for many different sources like the washer water pump, washer water valve, or any of the numerous internal water lines. The only way to truly tell is to teardown the washer and inspect for where it is leaking. As you can see sometimes a washer can take a little while to get into. Once we had it torn down the leak was obvious, it was coming from the center tub seal. This doesn’t happen very often but when it does it can cause quite a bit of damage if left unattended. We replaced the seal and problem solved. If your
