Manufacturers typically offer lower prices on their low-quality appliances and higher prices on their choice lines. The difference in price is in the internal components in the machines. Lower-end machines have lower-quality materials than those that are more expensive.
Is repairing an old appliance really a good investment?
When debating whether to repair an old appliance or purchase a new one, you need to consider the quality of appliance you can afford as a replacement and the option of having your current appliance properly repaired. Fieo's Appliance Repair can evaluate your appliance to determine if it's in your best interest to repair or replace it.
Should I repair or replace my existing appliance?
If you are comparing the machine that you bought a decade ago with one comparable in price now, you are not making a valid comparison. The machines are neither similar in quality nor durability even if they are the same price. If you replace the one you bought a decade ago with one that costs what you paid a decade ago, you'll be repairing the new machine every three to four years. You'll either have to pay more up front for a new, high-quality machine that will give you another decade of trouble-free operation. If you are unable to afford this, repair your existing machine.
