Continental Appliance San Francisco Offers Tips for Working with an Appliance Repair Technician

Continental Appliance’s technicians have attended factory training on most appliances.

San Francisco, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) December 28, 2010

Appliance repair is something people generally like to avoid. Break downs never occur at a convenient time. Appliances fail when they are being used or are needed. In addition to not being able to use the appliance, people now have to find an appliance repair service and schedule an appointment.

Below are some guidelines for working with an appliance repair service:

#1 Gather necessary information before calling the appliance repair service, including availability, warranty information, brand name, model, and serial number of the appliance.

#2 Be home when the appliance repairman shows up. Though it can be frustrating to be given a two to four hour time window, this is often the best they can do. The appliance repairman cannot always be expected to know exactly how long each job is going to take.

#3 Don’t put off appliance repair when something is going wrong. If the appliance is making a grinding noise but still seems to work ok, chances are the repair will be relatively inexpensive if addressed right away. Ignoring the problem could lead to a more expensive problem.

#4 Owners often like to watch the technician at work, but be considerate. Keep pets and children out of the way. The repairman doesn’t need a dog licking his face or children playing with his tools.

#5 Payment is expected at the time of service. Do not wait until the job is complete then tell the appliance repairman to send a bill.

As expensive as it seems, appliance repair fees are generally reasonable when considering the time and money it takes to travel around fixing appliances, to keep up with advancing technologies and new products, and the convenience afforded. Imagine if the appliance has to be taken to the shop.

“Continental Appliance’s technicians have attended factory training on most appliances and attend ongoing manufacturer training seminars to keep up on changing technologies,” said Dina Kourumalos, owner of Continental Appliance. “Each technician also has access to the technical documentation and tech line support for all the popular brands they service to ensure the appliance is repaired quickly and accurately.”
