Holiday Tips from SoBellas Las Cruces Appliance Repair

Home appliance work around the clock, all year long, so a little TLC before the holidays goes a long way to ensure a good time with the family


(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 13, 2012 ) as Cruces NM – Most people are not thinking about appliance repair during the holiday season. Though they plan to use their appliances quite a bit for holiday fun, they expect them to work as well as they do all year long. So as the weather cools down, the furnace should heat up. Cooking big holiday meals results in more work for the dishwasher and more food in the refrigerator.

With appliances working overtime during the holidays, they could break down at a most inconvenient time. Of course it’s never convenient, but it seems to be more devastating during the busy holiday time. The local appliance repair experts have posted sound advice to help customers enjoy the holidays with smooth running appliances.

The number one tip comes from the oven repair technician. He says to clean the oven now, rather than waiting until the night before cooking the Thanksgiving turkey. If the oven is about to break down, it probably will, right after running the self-cleaning cycle. The self clean feature heats the oven up to an extreme temperature which exposes weak spots. Cleaning it now will allow ample time for having it fixed if it should malfunction.

The washer repair man with SoBellas ( recommends replacing washer hoses if they are over 5 years old. Old rubber hoses can burst and cause major water damage to the home. Run a cycle with vinegar, bleach or a quality washer cleaner to eliminate odor from the washer.

The dryer repair man says poor maintenance is often the cause of dryer performance problems. Dryer vent cleaning provides necessary air flow for safe and efficient dryer operation. The service technician can also check the belt, bearings and slides for wear and tear and replace the worn parts to prevent more extensive damage.

The dishwasher repair man recommends using the appliance at least once a week to prevent seals from drying out and leaking. Use a quality dishwasher cleaner once a month to keep it fresh.

Finally, the refrigerator repair man recommends cleaning the condenser coils at least once a year for best results. Clean the inside before the holidays and be careful not to overfill it. Make sure the icemaker is working so there is plenty for guests.

SoBellas appliance repair technicians do their best to ensure a quick solution and they treat every call as urgent. During the holiday season, orders for replacement parts can become backed up, causing a delay. Consumers should clean their appliances and address any concerns they have well in advance of the holidays.
