Smoke damage appliances in apartment fire

Greetings
My fathers apartment building had a fire, and the insurance company tells him that his microwaves, vcr tape players, stove vent hoods, cannot be used due to smoke damage. These appliances were not exposed to fire heat, just smoke damage, yet they are condemmed. Can someone explain to my why? These appliances were not on during all the smoke damage occuring, so why can't they be used?

Just a recommendation from the ins. co. as a precaution. As long as fire did not damage them, they should be okay to use.

    Just precautions, as long as fire didn't damage the appliance, there should be no harm. Just watch out for heat damage such as melted wiring or cords.

How do I take a Philco BS-48-0004 transformer apart?


Manufacture's recommend you don't repair transformers. The reason being that they are considered safety parts. Improper repair could lead to a fire. Consider this: would you want to risk someone in your house being killed just because of a fire caused by that transformer? Even if the fire was not fatal, the damaged would not be covered by an insurance company. Is it worth that just for the sake of a few pounds in money for a proper replacement?

Tips for lowering home insurance!


Homeowners insurance is a necessity for all homeowners, but it can be very costly. Here are a few small tips to help you reduce the cost of your annual premium for homeowners insurance.

Having an alarm system that is monitored by a central station can lower your insurance by 5% and in some cases can be even more! You need to prove to the insurance company that you have the alarm by showing a contract or bills but it keeps your house safe and can lower your insurance its a win win all around.

Smoke detectors are a necessity in every house, but did you know that just having them can lower your premium 10% as well as keep you safe in case of fire.

Some insurance companies have a discount for customers who bundle their insurance, such as having home and auto insurance with the same company.

Reconsider that swimming pool! While having a swimming pool or a big trampoline in the backyard sounds like a really good and cool idea these dangerous devices can drive your home insurance up by upwards of 10%!

Fire in Microwave Using Sensor Control for Potato


Please contact your home insurance to have the problem logged as a failure of the microwave. The insurance company will most likely help you with the smoke damage to the house and will contact the manufacturer to get their money back... there might be an issue with the manufacturing of these appliances.

Microwave/small appliances do not turn on when plugged on to the power outlets on one wall.


What does "control panel has all fuses working" mean?

Are you saying you have an old-fashioned fuse panel in your house, instead of a modern circuit breaker panel?

If so, then I would suspect a bad connection in the panel.

If you indeed have breakers, a breaker can snap into the on and positions and still be bad.

Either problem sounds like it should be handled by a qualified electrician.

The power company or your insurance company would likely reimburse you for all or part of the electrician's bill, but you shoudl call first to be sure.

It's possible to have a faulty neutral connection in your wiring. That can lead to damage of several appliances and bulbs, and even pose a real fire or smoke hazard.

Please do not hesitate to get things fixed when you have home electrical problems!
