Your Fairbury, Illinois home is filled with appliances that you rely on to get you through your day. From kitchen appliances to your laundry equipment, your appliances are what keeps your home humming. Unfortunately, sometimes these appliances may let you down. Check out some of the most common appliance problems that many homeowners will run into.

An Oven That Bakes Unevenly

You may run into times when it seems like parts of your electric oven are heating at different temperatures. When this occurs, it is likely that you have a failing heating element. At the bottom of your electric oven, there is a thin black tube that should be glowing red if your system is operating properly. If it seems to only be heating and turning red in sections, the element could be faltering.

Your Refrigerator is Running Constantly

If your refrigerator is constantly running and failing to get any cooler, the culprit could be dirty condenser coils. The condenser coils are located behind or underneath your refrigerator and over time can get built up with dust and dirt if not properly cleaned. When these coils are dirty, they can reduce the ability of your refrigerator to cool and even lead it to a breakdown.

Your Washer Won’t Spin or Drain

There are times when your washer may fill up and agitate your clothes, but then fail to go through the drain and spin cycle. When this occurs, it is a sign that the lid switch has failed. If this is the case, you will need to contact a repairman to replace the assembly.

Your Dishwasher is Not Cleaning Your Dishes

If you are putting in a load of dishes and they are still dirty when the cycle is complete, it is likely that your dishwasher is not getting the water it needs to finish the job. This could be caused by a clogged or defective water inlet valve that will need to be replaced.
