How Can I Get Good Value On Hob Repairs?

How Can I Get Good Value On Hob Repairs?

It’s not always the biggest and most expensive household appliances that go wrong, so how can you be sure that you are going to get good value for repairs and for other lower-cost domestic items that may need to be fixed?

If the rings on your gas hob sputter when you use them, and no amount of cleaning seems to clear the flow, you really need someone who knows what they’re doing – a qualified engineer – to look into and fix the problem.  If the hob plates on your electric cooker aren’t heating evenly - or at all – there’s nothing you can safely do yourself to investigate and resolve the problem.  Beyond keeping it clean and fresh, you can’t deal with anything that goes wrong with a ceramic hob.

It can be easy to forget that household appliances items that were relatively inexpensive still have their own maintenance, repair and service requirements in the same way that more expensive washing machines, ovens, ranges and fridge freezers do.  This can make the cost of repairs to such items seem relatively expensive, and you don’t really want to spend a penny more than you absolutely must.  Getting good value for your repairs depends on you finding the right supplier who offers the right quality of service and whose repair is backed by the reassurances you need.

It’s also important to understand that ‘good value’ doesn’t always mean ‘low cost’.  What you want from a repair is that your appliance will continue to give you and your family safe and reliable service for a reasonable time to come.  To achieve that, you should choose a repairer who is accredited by the manufacturer to repair your appliance.  An accredited engineer may not be the cheapest option you can find, but it can be a very expensive false saving if an unqualified engineer further damages your appliance or puts it beyond even professional repair.

Can you get good value on a microwave oven repair?
When the cost of buying a new appliance is only a couple of hundred pounds, you might wonder if it is possible to get good value on a microwave oven repair.
Won’t the cost of repair be so high as to make it uneconomical?

The answer is that it need not be if you choose the right provider.  Some repair service providers offer a ‘no fix, no fee’ commitment, so you are not liable for any cost if they can’t help you.  Others insist on a callout charge even though they can’t help. 

If your supplier offers you a fixed cost by an engineer trained on your brand of appliance, and is willing to guarantee the repair they make, you know what you will get for your money.  Others can add a bewildering array of hidden charges, depending on the time taken and parts used and you could be set for a substantial bill that you weren’t expecting.
