The need for food preservation with the use of cold and ice dates back as early as 500 B.C. Who knew in those early days that today's modern refrigerators would not only keep food fresh, but that the appliances would become smart centers for entire homes?
It’s 2019, and while we’re not driving around in flying cars, we do live in an immensely digital world. We walk around with tiny computers in our pockets, our tech industry is booming and we can have a package at our door within hours via the tap of our fingers.
Your fridge’s primary job is to keep all of your food safe, cold, and available for you to enjoy throughout the day. So, when your Samsung refrigerator suddenly stops cooling and all of the food in your fridge is at risk of spoiling, your first move is to figure out how to fix the problem (well, maybe after you finish off the leftovers and the ice cream before it melts).
If you haven’t yet heard of the Samsung Family Hub refrigerator, we’ve got to say, this fridge is cool.
As one of the leading appliance manufacturers in the world, your Bosch dishwasher should provide reliable service for years. Unfortunately, with normal wear and tear, even the most durable dishwashers can break down.
There’s nothing more frustrating than loading up your washer or dryer, only to find that it’s broken, leaking or that it simply won’t turn on. You’ve got a tight schedule and budget to stick to, and this mishap was certainly not something you’d planned for.
Go ahead and let out a sigh of relief - you’ve endured winter’s worst, and summer is finally here, once and for all. It’s time to pack away those winter clothes, and get ready to enjoy cookouts, laying out on your deck, and some much-needed vitamin D.
Appliances make our lives easy. We no longer have to worry about washing dishes by hand, hanging out the clothes to dry, or heating up the fire to cook a meal—it’s all done and ready for us with the click of a button or a flip of a switch.
Picture this - you load up your dishwasher, push the ‘start’ button, and find, to your dismay, that no matter what you do, your trusted KitchenAid dishwasher isn’t working as it ought to. As frustrating as this situation may be, this can - and does - happen to everyone from time to time.
Laundry may be a chore, but nothing beats that warm, fresh-out-of-the-dryer feeling when you pull out a still-toasty towel and hold it up to your face. Of course, if your dryer isn’t heating up properly, that can put a real damper on things.
Call it Murphy's Law or just bad luck, it always seems as if your appliances are working perfectly until you need them most, like when you’re hosting company for a holiday or dinner party and your oven suddenly won’t turn on.
We've all become accustomed to the conveniences our home appliances provide to free up our time from doing tedious chores around the house. Since the invention and now common use of the automatic dishwasher, dishpan hands are a thing of the past.
What did we ever do before the dishwasher? Dinner is much less daunting with the knowledge that you won’t have to stand over the sink hand scrubbing dishes for an hour after you’re done eating (only to then dry them and then have to put them away).
Imagine this scenario - you’re busy prepping ingredients for dinner, and to get that water boiling you reach to turn on your stovetop or cooktop, only to discover that it won’t turn on or ignite. As frustrating as this situation can be, it unfortunately happens all too often.
We’ll just come right out and say it - your washer or dryer has seen better days. While we’re firm believers in the right to repair, if your precious appliance is pushing 20 years or more, there’s really no way around it: you need a new washer or dryer installed, and you need it now.
