10 days ago my French Style GE Fridge stopped cooling. I was looking for a service company that also serviced the Avon area and had a cheap service call price and good reviews. At $9.95 according to their website, and with 36 good reviews on YP.Com, I came across Indy Appliance Repair (IAR). Avon wasn't listed as a service area on their website, but upon calling, the customer service rep (CSR) said they could come out for $40.00. I decided to go ahead and book the appointment due to the high reviews. I took the day off and received a call from the technician in the designated time window. He was very friendly and trying to save me money, he attempted to diagnose the problem over the phone to a main Control Board issue. He explained that it would cost around $300 for the part, but also told me I could call the manufacturer since the fridge was not very old (5 years) and ask them to provide one at a discount. I was able to get the control board and easily install it myself for $80.00. Would have been great, if it had solved the issue. I would give 5 stars for the technicians effort to help me save money, but 2 stars for the effort in diagnosing the issue. I called IAR back, and to my surprise after explaining what happened, the CSR told me to call Turner Appliance Repair to service my fridge. This sort of confused and upset me, that they turned down my business and would not see the problem to the end. I ended up calling another service company that covers the Avon area and they diagnosed it to be a different enclosed board that regulates electricity to the compressor that was burned out and the bill is a little over $500.00. I don't know if this company was too busy to help me that they left me hanging that day, but I ended up wasting $80.00 by taking their advise over the phone. I would just advise other customers to make sure the company does their necessary due diligence on the issue and make sure they come in-person to visually diagnose the problem unless it can be fixed without any investment in parts. Once the real root cause is determined, then provide the options to repair.

I arrived home from work to find my refrigerator not working. I called Indy Appliance and they had a person in the area. He replaced the start relay on the compressor and my refrigerator immediatly started to cool. The tech showed me how to check the evaporator coil to make sure the compressor was working properly. This technician also told me put surge protectors on all my appliances. He even told me which specific protectors to use. I am so overwhelmed with how informative and helpful this company was with me. I also wanted to thank the helpful lady on the phone. She even told me what the problem might be and to unplug the compressor so as to not overheat the machine. She checked with the technician to get him out within a couple hours. I am very appreciative of this company and will always use them in the future. This is how a customer should be treated.

Express Appliance Repair
I used Express Appliance Repair on 2 separate occasions I was totally satisfied with both. The quick response time and professionalism was great. One repair job was to fix a 19 year old Kenmore washer whose timer had stopped working. I was so glad to save the machine and keep it working. The second job was to repair a 9 year old GE side-by-side refrigerator with multiple problems that went on for 1.5 years. Most significantly I had a leak on the refrigerator side. I now have full use of working crisper drawers and I am not cleaning up water, etc. On a third occasion I called the owner, Martin, regarding an appliance matter just to get advice. He was very helpful. The price charged for service was appropriate on both occasions. I would definitely call the company in the future.

Amazing Service! I called this company with my food thawing in my refrigerator. They were able to get to me within hours. They had the problem fixed on the initial visit. I am so greatful this company carries parts on thier vehicles. The technician was very professional. He explained everything that was going on with my appliance. He even gave me tips on how to maintain it for longer life span of the machine. I just cant explain how happy I am with this company. I will definetly refer them to all my family and friends which is something I dont take lightly. This is the company to use if you are looking for professional, affordable service. Thanks Indy Appliance Repair

This company was excellent to work with. My Maytag oven quit working in August. The oven is only 6 years old but Maytag discontinued the part. Indy Appliance Repair did not let that be the final answer. They made repeated calls to the manufacturer and researched parts until they found one that would work on my oven. The Tech came out this evening and installed it and it worked. Not only did they fight with the manufacturer to find a part that would work but they also worked around my schedule so I did not have to lose any work time. Thank you Chris and Donna. I will definitely recommend you to family and friends.

I called because our GE washer is making a loud grinding noise. The woman who answered the phone was very nice and after I explained the problem and she told me that it was a very common problem with GE washers (which I googled before hand and had read) and told me that the repair cost would probably be about as much as just getting a new washer. I really appreciated the honesty because she could have sent out a repairman and collected the service fee, but didn't take advantage. I will definitely be calling if we ever need any sort of future repairs! It is nice to find a company that isn't just out to take your money.

I called Indy Appliance Repair over the weekend b/c the water was not dispensing from my refrigerator. They had a technician, Chris, out to my house on Monday. He arrived in between the 3 hour window that they provided me on the initial call and he called when he was 20 minutes out.He looked over my fridge and explained to me how I could fix the problem myself. He also gave some helpful advice about protecting my other appliances and ways I could save myself a lot of money.Chris was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

A Affordable Appliance Repair
We had water leaking on 2 floors of our house. The gentleman that came out was unable to find the problem and said he would have to cut out our ceiling to find the problem. We ended up having another company come out that was able to determine the problem just by looking (didn't need to cut out our ceiling). I was disappointed the guy from Affordable App Repair wasn't able to figure it out by looking as well but maybe he is usually better. Just frustrated we had to pay him to come out when he ended up missing the problem.

Our dryer has failed me two times for two different issues. Both times the technician came out and had it fixed within minutes. Extremely professional, and showed me what was the issue while he fixed. He also informed me of my dryer pipe issue, and maintenance on my washer dryer that we would not experience problems in the future. I will only be using Indy Appliance for all of our appliances due to their professionalism, turn around time, and pricing. They are truly the best out there.

AA Appliance Repair
Our refrigerator stopped cooling and I called Terry at AA Appliance Repair on a Saturday afternoon. He returned my message within an hour, talked me through diagnosing the problem and gave me instructions on how to keep my food cold until he came the next morning--yes, that's Sunday morning! He came on Sunday and temporarily fixed the refrigerator until he came back on Monday to install the broken equipment. We couldn't be happier with the customer service and quality of service we received!
Tips & Advices
If the washing machine is overloaded or all the clothes are packed to one side, the imbalance can cause the washing machine to jerk and shake. These vibrations can be violent enough to slam the machine against other objects, possibly causing damage to its exterior.
Refrigerator coils should be cleaned at least twice a year. Households with pets should clean their refrigerator coils more frequently.
To reduce the risk of foodborne illnesses, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends homeowners set their refrigerators at or below 40 degrees Fahrenheit and their freezers at 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
In terms of operations and upkeep, gas dryers are less expensive than electric. The actual savings depends on the cost of gas vs. electricity in the area. Still, gas dryers heat up faster than electric ones do, making them slightly more energy efficient. However, gas dryers are priced higher than electric ones, so homeowners should prepare to pay more at the outset.
Proper maintenance helps most home appliances last longer. Homeowner's should check their user's manuals for insight on how often to inspect, clean or upgrade their appliances.
