Feature Story

Could You Be Using Your Appliances Wrong?

Appliance Repair Guru Shows How To Stop Wasting Money On Unnecessary Repairs

We all have at least one—a homeowner’s horror story of the time we called a service repair tech to fix the air conditioner, washer or stove then shelled out a hundred dollars for the service call only to discover the problem was something minor we could have fixed ourselves. If we only knew how. But most of us don’t know enough about our own household appliances to troubleshoot common problems, let alone fix them. Instead, we waste hundreds of dollars on unnecessary repairs. And to make matters worse, the real culprit could stem from how we use our appliances. That’s right; we could be using our appliances wrong!

Most of us don’t have time to take a crash course in appliance repair to unlock the mystery of the washer that won’t spin, the dryer that refuses to dry or the dishwasher that insists on leaving spots on the glasses. That’s why we’re so dependent on service and repair technicians to come to our rescue. But now anyone who’s ever had a showdown with an unruly appliance has a new secret weapon in their corner. Author and ‘Refrigeration Doctor’ Vernon Schmidt is eliminating the fear of appliance repair. “I’ve serviced new and used appliances for more than twenty-six years,” says Schmidt, “and you can save so much money if you know the simple solutions for many appliance problems.”

Schmidt tackles some of the most common appliance problems in his new book, Appliance Handbook for Women: Simple Enough Even Men Can Understand. Schmidt started his own repair company more than 30 years ago and was such a skilled and honest repair technician, he was quickly dubbed the “Refrigeration Doctor” by one of his customers. Now he’s taken the most useful nuggets of information from his experience and compiled them in an easy-to-read and practical format. The Appliance Handbook also reveals some critical but not widely known information that could lengthen the lifespan of your appliances and save you hundreds of dollars:

-Stop using too much soap! Find out why soap is the four letter word in the repair industry.
-Take the soap test and find out how much soap you should be using.
-Find out the one thing you must always do with a front loading washing machine.
-Learn how to load your dishwasher the right way.
-Find out why your dryer vent should be cleaned each year.
-Discover why new appliances are so much different from older models- and what that means when it’s time for repairs.

With the Appliance Handbook, when you have problems with an appliance you simply look up the type of appliance, find the complaint that matches your problem and follow the solution. In many cases, the solution is so simple you won’t even have to open up your toolbox.

Schmidt also offers keen insights about changes in your daily chores that will save you money. For example, he strongly advises cutting back on the amount of soap you use. “No one believes they use too much soap,” says Schmidt. “The fact is almost everyone does. You do not need to see suds to get proper cleaning.” The Appliance Handbook gives a simple test to find out if you’re using too much soap in your dishwasher and/or your washer—and the book explains the impact all that extra soap can have on your appliances.

So if you’re interested in saving money on service calls and improving the longevity of your household appliances, the Appliance Handbook for Women: Simple Enough Even Men Can Understand, can be the saving grace for your wallet and your washer. “The average homeowner has at least three major household appliances in their home,” says Schmidt. “So they can save money by knowing some of the key things a service technician knows.”

About The Author:

Vernon Schmidt is a true American success story. Raised by his single mother in a working class neighborhood on the south side of Indianapolis , Schmidt took his first job bagging groceries when he was just 9 years old. He started his own appliance repair business at the age of 21. As word of his repair skills spread, he turned his one-man operation into a 32 employee company. Schmidt has serviced major household appliances and heating/air conditioning equipment for more than thirty years. He decided to share his wealth of experience by writing a book that would help the average homeowner save money on unnecessary repairs.
