Electric Range Not Working?

One common problem with electric ranges is the prongs. Sometimes they can get bent inwards and they don't handle the electricity right, which means the element doesn't heat up.

Luckily, this is an easy fix.

When the element is 100% cool, unplug it and take it out. This would be a great time to clean it if it's in need of a great scrubbing. Then bend the prongs (pictured red in the diagram) outward. This makes it much more likely that the element will be able to have the electricity flow through it and heat it properly.

The Miracle Cleaner

So many cleaners have very harsh chemicals. Some that even encourage you to wear a mask, have flowing air, or take very frequent breaks from using it. There is one that cleaner that we always recommend that has none of the negative side effects: white vinegar.

The thing that makes vinegar such a good cleaner is the acetic acid. It helps clean away dirt, grime, and germs.

Its safe to clean your washer, dryer, fridge, oven, freezer, microwave, or just about anywhere else. If you're into green and safe chemicals, it the perfect option to switch to.

Why Impulse Buy?

Salesmen at a big-box shop can be intimidating with their pushiness. They want to sell you the latest and greatest so they get their commission.

We sell the tried and true products, and with great perks. We have a lifetime service guarantee and have a 90-day financing cash option! We also wont push you to close a sale.

If you're in need of a new large appliance or just a repair, give us a call or stop on by.

Here are Some Tips to Optimize Your Kitchen Appliances

Dishwasher Tips

If the dishes are not getting clean...

1. Make sure the water is hot, preferably at least 140 degrees. Note that this is hot enough to burn you!

2. Make sure the lower spray arm turns freely.

3. Clear out any debris from the bottom inside the dishwasher.

Stove Tips

If your burners are not heating...

1. Make sure they are sitting straight in their proper positions.

2. Make sure the clock is set on manual cycle and not the automatic time bake cycle.

3. Wipe off the burner with a hot, damp rag and then dry completely.

4. Make sure the clock is set on the manual and not the automatic cycle.

5. Raise up the top and keep the area clean and free of grease build-up.

Refrigerator Tips

If your refrigerator is not running or is not cold enough...

1. Turn the thermostat up to the next highest setting. If it comes on, let it run for 24 hours and check temperature to confirm it is working properly.

2. Clear and/or remove anything blocking the air flow around the outside of the refrigerator (on top, underneath, behind, beside, in front of, etc.). Allow 3" of clearance all the way around.

Everything Is Defrosting, So Should Your Freezer!

Its starting to warm up, the sun is coming out more, and you may have even seen some squirrels running around.

While everything is coming out of the big freeze, it might be a good idea for your freezer to do the same.

Take everything out of your freezer and into a cooler, unplug it, and leave the door open. Let it completely defrost. When the entire freezer is room temperature, sanitize it.

Finally, you can put everything back in and enjoy a more functional freezer!
