Washing Machine Drum Replacement Staten Island
Sub Zero Refrigerator Repair Staten Island
Brief Explanation

We recently had a customer give us a call and say that they were experiencing complications with their dishwasher.

What Was Wrong?

*TJ’s Appliance Repair also services refrigerators as well. Click Here to view one of our recent jobs on a Sub-Zero unit.*

Since they called us early regarding their defective dishwasher, we were able to come out the very same day. Upon arrival, we then conducted a brief overview of their machine and what was wrong with it. Since their dishwasher wasn’t starting, that already pointed us in the right direction from the beginning.

Once we finished our diagnostic of the dishwasher, we were able to determine that the reason the appliance wasn’t turning on was because its thermal fuse had been severely burnt. (See Before picture.)

We pride ourselves on providing the Best Dishwasher Repairs in Staten Island and its greater surrounding areas.

Wait, What's A Thermal Fuse?

A thermal fuse acts as a safeguard between your dishwasher and the electrical current that flows throughout it. If there’s a short in your dishwasher’s wiring or it experiences any type of extreme power surges than your thermal fuse is there to help prevent you from turning the machine back on.

However, in this customer’s case, there was simply a faulty connection which made the fuse give out. We replaced the thermal fuse with a brand new one (see After picture) and the entire take-down to reinstallation took not but 30 minutes or so.

Regardless of what some DIY repairmen may suggest, Never Purposefully Bypass Your Dishwasher’s Thermal Fuse! While it could save you a little money from having to purchase another one temporarily, the potential risks far outweigh the benefits.

Running a dishwasher without a thermal fuse is like using an electrical outlet without a ground source. When it comes to electrical home appliances that are constantly using and churning around water, the last thing you want to do is to throw an unguarded electrical current into a wet environment.

Overall, this repair was simple to resolve and takes very little time to accomplish. So if your dishwasher isn’t operating correctly, or any other home appliance like a washing machine, then give us a call and we can likely schedule a same-day appointment with you to see what’s going on with it.

That way, you can finally stop being con”fused” by your dishwasher’s problems.
