Could You Be Using Your Appliances
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
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
-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.
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

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.”
