How Long Do Refrigerators Last?
Refrigerators can last up to 20 years but may start to exhibit problems after the 10-year mark. Suppose you are considering replacing your fridge due to malfunctions. In that case, we HIGHLY recommend you reach out to our appliance repair professionals first, as we may be able to repair your fridge for a fraction of the cost. In truth, many homeowners aren't even completely aware that appliance repair is an option—when they notice signs of trouble, they just keep on using the appliance until they can't stand it anymore an then get a replacement. But that's really not the most cost-effective way to go when you can call our team to fix the problem and enjoy many more years with your current appliance. By choosing appliance repair instead of going straight to replacement with a new appliance, you can save yourself a lot of money, time and stress.
Is It Cheaper to Repair or Replace a Refrigerator?
Typically, it is MUCH cheaper to repair your fridge, but if the cost of repairing the fridge is more than 50% of what it would cost to replace your existing fridge, it may be worth investing in a new refrigerator. Repairs that cost more than 50% of what a new fridge would cost could be a sign that your current fridge is at the end of its natural life cycle, and repairing it may not produce long-lasting results.
Is It Normal for a Dishwasher That's Only a Year or Two Old to Need Appliance Repair?
Actually, yes. Most people are surprised to learn that it's pretty common for a dishwasher that is relatively new to need appliance repair. Austin homeowners sometimes suspect that they got a faulty model, but the truth is, Consumer Reports has stated that around 30% of dishwashers need appliance repair service within the first five years after they are manufactured. That's notably higher than the rates at which other appliances need repair services, and there are a couple of reasons why it could be happening:
- Dishwashers have electronic, mechanical and plumbing components all contained in one machine, which means there are three different types of components that could experience failure. Because they have a lot of moving parts, as well as water intake lines and wastewater disposal lines, there are more opportunities for issues to arise.
- People don't always maintain their dishwashers as well as they should. Many homeowners don't even know that their dishwasher needs to be cleaned or how to accomplish that effectively. If you have access to the manufacturer's manual, it should offer some important advice on how to access food traps, filters and other components that need the occasional maintenance.
Regardless of what's causing the issue with your dishwasher, trust our expert team to get it back in perfect working order and get you many more serviceable years out of it.
What Are the Signs You Need Washing Machine Repair?

Austin service professionals at Mr. Appliance of Austin will get your clothes washer in excellent shape for you and ensure you've got access to clean, fresh laundry with the push of a button.

How Long Does Appliance Repair Take?
Issues with laundry and kitchen appliances can cause a lot of disruption and inconvenience for your household, so it's completely understandable that you want to know right away what to expect and plan accordingly to minimize the hassle for your family. However, there's no way to really give you a realistic estimate for how long it may take until we find out more about the problem that has prompted you to call for appliance repair. Austin, TX household appliances can experience a wide range of issues that may require Austin appliance repair services, and while some are relatively fast and easy to fix, others are far more complex, so it stands to reason that they will take longer to fix.
Along with the complexity of both the machine and the malfunction, another factor worth considering is that sometimes replacement parts are necessary and we don't have them available, so we have to order them in, and that, of course, extends the length of time it will take for appliance repair. Austin residents can rely on our team to get the repair done swiftly but correctly so they don't have to worry about another malfunction in the near future.
