Appliance Repair or Replace it?

When confronted with an appliance that has broken down and requires appliance repair, it's a very common question received by our customers on whether to move ahead with the repair or to replace the appliance altogether.
We very much appreciate that the appliance you purchased was an investment that you were hoping to get many years out of. However, we also know appliances that are made today are not the same quality that they once were even as most recently as the last 5 to 10 years. Manufacturers are under more pressure than ever to deliver higher revenues and higher profit margins, therefore, most of the manufacturing process has now been moved over to countries such as Mexico and China and other countries that can manufacture the same products for less, while selling you that dishwasher, stove, oven, washer and dryer for the same price.
Here are some ideas of cost of repair and replacement. As with anything your mileage will vary, as appliance repairs in Toronto can also vary.

see this steps and fix it. God bless you
Although not as common, if the oven won't turn on it is possible that the appliance is not receiving proper voltage. Electric ovens require 220 volts of alternating current. If for some reason the appliance is receiving significantly less, the oven won't turn on. Check for proper voltage using a volt meter at the socket where the appliance plugs in.
Make sure there's power getting to your range, oven or cook top. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

I have an Oster Bread Machine model 5839. The display and timer work but nothing else does.


Addressing Power-up/Start-up Issues:


1. Unplug the breadmaker.

2. Confirm the power source you're accessing is live using a blender, toaster, etc.

3. Plug the breadmaker in.

4. Confirm the breadmaker is receiving power:


    1. Some models have a built-in off/on switch. Turn it to the ON position.
    2. Some models make an audible tone when plugged in.
    3. Some models have a colored light and/or a lighted display screen that lights up.
    4. Some models require you press the Select button down until the unit powers up.
    5. Some models require you press the Start button down until the unit powers up.
    6. Some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press the Start button.


3. No, you were not able to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power? Sorry to hear that. Attempt to have the breadmaker serviced by a small appliance repair facility or simply discard it.


4. Yes, you have confirmed that your breadmaker is receiving power? Fantastic! Now reboot the breadmaker's electronics by pressing down continuously on the Start button until you notice a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 5 to 10 seconds. Beware: Some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press and hold the Start button to reboot the system.

Often the + and - Timer Delay buttons are pressed by mistake, delaying Start by up to 12 hours. If you suspect the Timer Delay feature has been engaged accidentally, you'll need to reboot the breadmaker's electronics. You can do this by pressing down on the Start button continuously until you notice a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 5 to 10 seconds. Beware: Some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press and hold the Start button to reboot the system.


All breadmaker use a belt and pulley system. If your breadmaker powers-up but the mixer won't turn when it's supposed to, your belt is probably broken. You
