Time to Prepare your Kitchen Appliances for the Festive Season

With Christmas and the festive season approaching it is a good time to check your kitchen appliances for any minor issues before they stop working when you need them to be able to perform. During this article, we look at some issues that you should act on now so a specialised technician can assess and resolve any potential problems so you can avoid having urgent issues at a really busy time of year.

Vital Kitchen Appliances

It is best to prepare your kitchen appliances ahead of time so that they will run smoothly for you during the busy festive season. November is a good time to check your dishwasher, stove, cook-top, oven, fridge and freezer for any unusual sounds when they are being used or if they are operating normally. Companies which specialise in specific types of appliances products have a wealth of knowledge and expertise for problem solving issues with those important kitchen machines so always call an expert for assistance if they need servicing.

Butterworth Appliances

At Butterworth Appliances our team are able to work on many appliance brands, but have specialist knowledge in servicing appliances with Fisher & Paykel, Haier, Elba, Simpson, Westinghouse, Electrolux, Atlas, Parmco or LG branding. Most importantly we can help service a wide range of appliance products in the kitchen, specifically your cook-top, oven, stove, hob, dishwasher, insinkerator, fridge and freezer. We are proud to say that all of our qualified technical team are experts with appliance repairs and hold practising licences with the Electrical Workers Registration Board.  Staying safe with electrical appliances is really important, especially for powerful ovens or stoves, so let our knowledgeable team help you with any appliance repairs in the kitchen.

Stove & Cooktop Repairs

Smooth operating stoves or ceramic cooktop elements in the kitchen is crucial for preparing special festive food.  Check that each element on your cooktop can bring a pot to the boil and reduce the heat to simmer.  If you can’t control the heat of an element it could be disastrous for cooking so get an expert out to service your cooktop. In addition to the elements other problems can occur with the knobs cracking, switches sticking or indicator lights not working.

If you have dropped something on the glass cooktop surface and caused a chip or crack through the special Schott Ceran material then you need to get it checked as soon as possible.  It is not advisable to use a cooktop with a surface that is compromised as water could potentially get through to the electrical components. Let us know as soon as possible so that cooktop repairs can be done without delay.F&P Cooktop repair

Wall Oven Repairs

Any roast meal or festive baking needs a great functioning oven. Check that all settings are working for grill, bake and fan baking in your oven. If you find the temperature not heating up to the right level or your oven door doesn’t close properly call us to get your oven serviced. Our experts can help with thermostats, hinges, oven doors, elements and check that everything operates well.

If you are unlucky enough to have the glass in your oven door shatter we can also help repair oven doors. Each model has specific parts to match the size, shape and structure used for an oven door so if you need assistance with shattered glass call us to help with your oven repair.

Stove Repairs

Freestanding stoves serve the same function as separate cooktops and ovens so you should check that everything is operating properly now to allow time for it to be resolved before Christmas. Cooking with a faulty stove is one headache no one needs during the festive season. Call us for high-quality stove repairs and servicing of elements, thermostats, switches, lights or controls.

Dishwasher Repairs

Dishwashers take all the fuss out of entertaining and cleaning up in the kitchen, especially during the festive season. If you find that your dishwasher isn’t cleaning the dishes properly, is making weird noises or simply isn’t doing the job like it used to then don’t delay and call us for service assistance. Hand washing quickly becomes a chore that can be done faster and more efficiently with a dishwasher. Make sure you check that your dishwasher handle has not developed any cracks, especially around the area used to open and close the door.  Also check that the buttons have not become difficult to operate and it will function on different wash cycles. Don’t delay with seeking help for your dishwasher repairs and give us a call today.

Dishwasher repairDishdrawer Repairs

Dishdrawers do the same job as a dishwasher and make life easier for entertaining and cleaning up in the kitchen. Before the festive season starts, check that all your dishdrawer internal racks operate, impellor blades spin freely and handles work properly. If you find anything on your dishdrawer that’s not operating normally or it faults during the wash cycle then don’t delay and call us for service assistance.

Refrigerator Repairs

Refrigeration appliances in your kitchen are very important for keeping food fresh and at a safe temperature. Storing food for the festive season usually puts a lot more pressure on the space in your fridge. Make sure that you check for any ice building up or water forming in unusual places as that can mean your fridge is not performing properly. Also check the temperature inside your fridge is sitting at a good level and does not seem to be too warm. If you’re concerned about any issues call us today and our experts can diagnose any problems with your refrigerator without delay.

Freezer Repairs

Frozen treats like ice cream and ice blocks are perfect to have in the freezer for the festive season. Check that your freezer is maintaining a good temperature to keep all your food safely stored in a frozen state. Ice cream going soft is a good indicator that your freezer is not operating properly and could need assistance. If you find an issue get it assessed quickly so that freezer repairs can be done before any food is lost.F&P Freezer Repair
