Here are some guidelines to go over before deciding whether to repair it or dump it. Dallas Appliance Repair has had to walk away from several service calls. After the technician educates the customer on whether on not to repair-it or dump-it.
A customer should repair-it, If the warranty is still valid, or if the appliance is high-end product and has a good operating record. Another factor is how much will the repair cost versus how much it would cost to replace the appliance with a newer more energy efficienat model.
A customer should dump-it if the appliance is more than eight years and has a history of break downs, or if the repair cost is more than 50% of new appliance cost, or if the appliance warranty has expired, but not considered old, yet new technology equipment may make the fix-it factor economically sound in the long-run.
Another factor to consider is if appliance repair parts are hard to get or have a long waiting period.
