Sears Appliance Repair
I can usually repair my six-year old riding lawnmower's belts and cutting blades myself, but when it developed a problem in the deck lift mechanism, that was too complicated. Sears (A&E) sent a repairman out to check out the problem, made a temporary fix, ordered the necessary parts, and installed them in the course of about two weeks for a price of around $300. Since I was afraid I might need a new mower at a cost of about $5,500, I thought this was a real bargain. The hardest part was navigating the auto-response features of the repair call. Every time I said I was out of the warranty the call was cut off, so I tried it saying I had a warranty. That worked, and the responder checked and told me I didn't, but then processed the request.
Tips & Advices
Aftermarket replacement parts can be perfectly safe and reliable, but be sure to do your research. If replacing a more integral piece, such as washing machine’s water pump or a thermostat for a busted water heater, it might be best to purchase new.
Replacement parts generally come with warranties extending anywhere from 30 days to five years, depending on the original price, the nature of the fix and the age of the part itself.
If you’re seeking new parts repair companies will generally mark up their prices slightly--particularly at a major national retailer. However, used parts are typically discounted.
Cheaper used appliance parts can be found online or at many local, independently owned retailers, along with ecommerce sites such as eBay. Major retailers, however, generally limit their selection to unused, full-priced options.
Second-hand appliance parts are generally anywhere between 50-75% cheaper than new ones, but warranties might not extend as long and the parts may be less reliable or come with a shorter lifespan. Be sure to research the source of any second-hand parts to ensure the dealer is reputable and the part itself reliable.
