What do appliance services include?
To install or repair your items, an appliance technician will visit your home or property. The exact inclusions with your appliance service will depend on the item you need to be installed or repaired. Here are some of the most popular appliance care services and what you can expect when booking your technician:
Fridges and freezers
You’ll need to book fridge repairs and installations if you need a complex fridge or freezer installation or it isn’t cooling properly, makes weird noises, or leaks. Your appliance technician can help with quick fixes like fridge door repairs (so it shuts properly and keeps the cold in) through to more serious issues with the thermostat, motor, or refrigeration gasses. Before they arrive, you’ll need to remove food and store it in a cool box or bag. To work safely on your fridge or freezer, your technician will turn off the electricity. Then they’ll fix or install your item using appliance-friendly tools, like screwdrivers, cleaning brushes, ratchets, or a refrigeration manifold gauge (to check the gas pressure and flow). When the service is complete they’ll turn your fridge or freezer back on and let you know when you can start using it again.
Ovens and stoves
Appliance technicians have the skills to work on a range of oven repair and installation tasks in both domestic and commercial kitchens. Common appliance care services are gas oven installation, microwave repair, rangehood installation, and electric stove connections. Your licenced electrician or gas fitter will troubleshoot the problem according to your oven’s instructions. When they know what the problem is, they’ll turn off the gas or electricity and work to fix or install your item. If you’ve got a new oven or stove top for installation and need the old one taken away, your appliance service might be able to help with this, as well.
Dishwasher repairs and installations
An appliance technician will plumb in your dishwasher and, if requested, take your old one to the tip. Already got a dishwasher, but it’s playing up? Common problems include dishes are coming out dirty, an electrical fault causing the cycle to cut short (or go on too long), or your dishwashers not draining. You can hire a dishwasher technician to help get it fixed and running smoothly again.
Washing machines and dryers
A professional installation of your washing machine or dryer protects against faults - ensuring everything is level and properly filling and draining. But it’s still possible for your machine to break down - electrical errors can stop cycles from finishing or a dodgy door might hold your clothes to ransom. A washing machine technician will plumb-in in and service your washer or dryer correctly, so you don’t have to worry. And if you’ve got an old machine you want rid of, you can request a washing machine removal service, too. In some cases your technician may strip the old machine for parts or recondition it, which may lower the cost of your job.
As well as whitegoods, appliance technicians can install and repair other electrical systems. Get help with security camera systems, install an electric garage door, or even get your electrical gym equipment set up. They’ll use the right tools and equipment to properly install your appliance and ensure it’s working smoothly, and that you know how to operate it.

Repair gas oven
Hillside, City of Edinburgh
21st May 2022
I've moved into a flat in Leith with a New World Millenium gas oven (Model 016667) that appears to have an intermittent fault. The gas hobs and griddle work fine - twist the dials and gas flows an, the electric spark lights the hobs. The gas oven seems to have an intermittent fault where gas flows, but often there is no spark to light the oven. I've got the instruction manual and I've followed the instructions exactly on how to light the thing - eg make sure the programmer is switched out of a certain mode, have the oven door open first, twist the dial, etc. Sometimes the spark lights the oven, sometimes there is no spark. I'm baffled to be honest. Maybe it's an electrical fault because gas always flows out of the oven when the dial is twisted, but the spark often doesn't light. It'd be great if you could have a look at it for me - do you have a quote for how much this would cost? - Due date: Before Tuesday, 24 May 2022
American style fridge freezer
Fountainbridge, City of Edinburgh
27th Feb 2022
Looking for help with a really odd job. It’s for a problem we’ve got at our home in Bruntsfield. We have a Samsung American style fridge/freezer that decided to pack up last week. It’s 12/13 years old and an engineer has confirmed the compressor has gone so we are looking to get a new appliance. Now the tricky bit - we originally had the appliance on our ground floor but had some building works and relocated our kitchen to the basement 10 years ago - despite every effort the fridge/freezer was too big to get down the staircase. It couldn’t pivot sufficiently to get down the steps to the basement. Because we had builders on site at the time I remember they had a platform that could go up and down which they used to solve the problem. They were able to take our appliance out one of the rear ground floor windows, place it on the platform and then lower it to the basement level. It needed a few chaps to keep it steady but they moved it down so it could be placed in the new kitchen space on the lower level. I don’t know if you have anything similar to this platform. An alternative would be for any new appliance to be transported through a tenement stairwell in the flats opposite our home and then carried over our garden wall but that wall is around 175cm tall so it would still require the appliance to be raised to a considerable height. Rough dimensions of the broken appliance are 188cm high, 62cm deep and 94cm wide. It might be better too if the switchover could be done over 2 days so the existing machine could be taken out first. I can then get it picked up and disposed of at the same time the new machine arrives. The new machine could then be waiting in our hallway for you to return and either take it through the window (as was done before all those years ago) or carried around to the tenements behind our home and brought over the wall. Thanks for considering. - Due date: Flexible

Replace diesel eberspacher heating fuel pump/air filter/fuel line
St Leonard's, City of Edinburgh
17th Nov 2022
The diesel eberspacher heater D2 on my microcamper isn’t working and could be due to the fuel line being a bit slack, the air filter is old and the diesel fuel pump doesn’t work. The heater is under the seat next to the kitchen sink, the diesel fuel source is separate to the main fuel tank and is in the separate storage compartment (between cab and microcamper) on the left side. All replacement parts are in a paper bag in the kitchen sink (4 mm fuel line and clips, 6mm fuel line and jubilee clips, air filter, eberspacher diesel pump as well as the metal protective metal plate that fits over the exhaust on the outside of the vehicle). The metal plate screws have been discarded as they were in bad shape. The heating control panel is above the kitchen sink on the side of the cabinet. Press the button with waves beside it to turn the heating on – requires the engine to be started to fire it up but can switch off the engine once it gets going. Todo: - Fit new air filter - Fit new fuel line (horrible lurid green) as necessary so that it isn’t slack anymore. - Fit new diesel pump. - Refit protective metal plate. - Can you figure out what the button next to the heating panel does? It’s not connected to anything and I don’t know what it’s for. - Do you have a better housing for the heating panel? Or can it just be removed and the panel moved to sit on the side of the sink or something? Super ugly Tupperware box. - Due date: Flexible
