The Virtual Disclaimer:
This website was produced with the average
consumer in mind. By this, we mean consumers who don't know much about appliances
and how they work, plus those who are tired of paying ever-increasing prices for
repairs. I have compiled a lot of information on most every major appliance
that you are likely to deal with on a regular basis, along with most of the
common failures and their corrections. The
repair forum is an excellent source for information when you have a problem, and is not unlike having your very own professional appliance consultant at your fingertips. The
repair manuals are quite helpful as well, and I recommend them for each appliance you own, since they are an excellent resource in time of need.
Hopefully this website will enable you to be more self-sufficient and informed.
be careful! Make sure you disconnect any appliance from the
power source before tinkering, unless you are familiar with live electrical
diagnosis! Being electrocuted is neither professional nor beneficial to your

Help Forum- Limitations & Exclusions
The Appliance Help Forum is an excellent
resource for expert advice on repair problems. It is not designed to
be a training course for repairing appliances, nor should you
attempt any repairs that are beyond your scope of expertise. This
forum will direct you onto a course of action in which you may
decide if the repair is feasible for you to do yourself, or if you
should consult outside help. The many repair manuals and common
repair parts offered should inspire you to perform most nominal
Due to the inherently
dangerous and complex nature of microwave oven repair and diagnosis,
we do NOT encourage, nor do we offer any help on this forum to fix
an internal microwave oven problem. These repairs should always be
done by a professional. If you desire to fix a microwave, we offer
the Complete Microwave Oven
Service Handbook on CD ROM which will enable you to make any
repair on any microwave. Simple microwave questions will be answered
as a courtesy to our customers.
