If your loved washing machine or fridge starts to make an odd noise, don’t be tempted to browse for a new one just yet. Not only is replacing your appliances at the first sign of malfunction expensive, it also contributes to landfill waste, both things you can do something about. Hoppy can help you book in for an appliance repair service with our trusted partner Rated People.

In most cases fixing an electrical appliance isn’t difficult for an experienced professional. Everything from toasters, kettles, and microwaves to larger items like fridges and washing machines are good candidates for repair.

Which appliances can typically be repaired?

  • Electric ovens
  • Fridges
  • Washing machines
  • Electric hob
  • Dishwasher
  • Small electrical goods like kettles and toasters
  • Microwaves

How to select the right tradesperson for the job?

When it comes to appliance repair, most jobs will typically fall under the skillset of either electricians or plumbers. It’s usually easy to determine whose services you require by the type of appliance that needs repairing.

The only exception to this rule is the washing machine as malfunction can be due to a plumbing or an electrical issue. In this instance, be sure to provide as much detail about the issue as possible when posting your job – you’ll get advice about the type of issue it is most likely to be.

Any gas-connected appliances, like gas stoves, should only be worked on by a Gas Safe registered tradesperson.
