When you notice loud noises or movement 

Lous noise, vibrations, or movement from your appliance is usually a sign of a big problem, one you probably will need help with. 

Yes, we know that some appliances come with sounds and motions like washing machines or dishwashers, but loud noises and uncommon vibrations are signaling issues with the machine. 

Why do you need professional help? 

Loud noises tend to indicate a piece of the machine has come loose or some debris is floating and banging on the inside. 

This could mean you need to fully open the appliance panels and look inside, replace pieces, and put them all back together perfectly. Sounds like a job for professional appliance repairs to us. 

Movement or vibrations could be motor-related and this is a delicate piece of equipment so you’ll want the right people on the job.  

An underperforming appliance 

This one is mostly due to the mystery part of the issue. When an appliance is underperforming, leaving unwashed dishes or smelly clothes and you have tried it all, then you need to call for help. 

Why do you need professional help? 

Fixing your washing machine or fridge from an unknown issue requires more expertise than tackling common problems. 

Your appliance technician will be testing every component in the appliance with specialized tools to find the issue and fix it. It’s a meticulous and heavy-duty job best left to the pros. 

An appliance that causes circuit breakers to trip 

An appliance that’s giving you this type of issue is a major problem waiting to happen, so call someone to help you!

Why do you need professional help? 

Trippin circuit breakers can have to do with power balances or bad wiring. The big red flag here is that you are looking at a fire hazard. 

Get an expert technician the ones at Maydone to look at your appliance and put this emergency out before it starts. 

Water and gas leaks 

Water and gas leaks can do irreparable damage to your home and are dangerous for the people living there. This is why they need to be addressed swiftly and with professional attention. 

Why do you need professional help? 

These types of leaks are probably the result of bad installation or needing to replace tubes and drains. It can take a while to find the source. You’ll also need to move the appliance around and inspect all the connecting drain and gas installations. 

Most of these issues can be prevented with proper appliance installations, and when they do occur usually can be reversed and set right by appliance repairs quickly. 

A sparking appliance 

Sparks and other electrical issues are a big task to handle on your own, if you don’t have any previous experience or knowledge. 

Not only could the appliance be at risk but also your safety

Why do you need professional help? 

You and your home are better off with a professional visit from an appliance repair service. 

Keep in mind that electrical issues can cause damage to more than the broken appliance and that it is dangerous to go in with no working knowledge of how to fix it. 

Always accept when you need help 

Being able to recognize the signs of an appliance repairs job beyond your skills will save you time, money, and risks. 

Get a good idea of the appliance repair service suppliers in your areas and ask for recommendations and budgets. 

If you are in Toronto you already know who to call, Maydone!!!

  • This is the second time I’ve used their services, and both time was helped by Alex. He was incredibly thorough, punctual and incredibly diligent. He went above and beyond and even fixed a wobbly door under my sink. It’s always a pleasure to find a reliable and efficient service, and I would absolutely use Alex in the future!

  • Working in a veterinary clinic - we understandably go through a lot of laundry. Our washer was out of commission and within a very short period of time, Igor not only diagnosed the problem but had it fixed. He was efficient and easy to work with.
