A broken appliance can mean more than an inconvenience—in some circumstances, malfunctioning machines can pose serious safety hazards. You should never casually disregard telltale signs of potential danger. When you notice that your oven won’t turn off or dryer won’t dry clothes properly, it’s vital to have the problem diagnosed right away to protect your home and family. That’s why Hudson Appliance Repair & Removal is available seven days a week to perform appliance repair services: to make sure your unit gets the attention it needs, right away. At Hudson Appliance Repair & Removal, we use our knowledge and expertise to keep you and your family free from harm.
Stoves, ovens, and dryers are most commonly associated with issues like house fires, electrical shocks, and gas leaks, but the truth is that any broken appliance may pose a risk. Refrigerator fires can be caused by lightbulbs that don’t turn off after the door is closed. Dishwasher problems such as a malfunctioning control panel or damaged electrical circuit can also cause house fires.
Some signs that your broken appliance requires immediate attention include:
- Burning odor
- Surfaces that are hot to the touch (that shouldn’t be)
- Popping or crackling sounds
- Electrical shocks when touching appliance
- Black marks or stains around appliance
- Yellow flame on gas pilot light rather than blue flame
