SIMPLE DIY REPAIRS FOR KITCHEN APPLIANCES These simple repairs to three common household appliances can save homeowners money that would oth- erwise be spent on service calls and labor. RefRigeRa ToRs: The gaskets on the refrigerator doors–an important feature to both lower energy consumption and preserve food–often become ripped or cracked, and it’s a repair almost anyone can do. Most gaskets today need to simply be pushed into place; older fridge gaskets may have screws that need to be loosened to install a new one. ovens: Bake and broil elements like a light bulb in an electric oven can fail, but they are usually simple repairs. Make sure to shut off power to the oven or unplug it; then unscrew and remove the old element and replace it with a new one. on a gas stove, the glow bar igniter frequently fails, and while it’s a fragile part, it’s also easy to Di Y. it’s a bit more involved than the bake/broil elements on the electric stove, because access panels have to be removed, but it’s not too overwhelming, and requires just a screwdriver or multi-tool. DishwasheRs: Dishwashers also have a door gasket that can tear–and a function- al door gasket is the difference between a leaking dishwasher and a sealed one. gaskets can be ordered and repaired quite easily; like a refrigerator, some only need to be pushed into place, while others are slightly more challenging, but none is very difficult to repair. The detergent dispenser is another relatively straightforward fix. Depending on the model and age of the dishwasher, fixing this might be as simple as replacing a spring, or may require replacing the enter dispenser module.
