best points: Is your refrigerator leaking? Not sure where you can find replacement knobs for your stove-top range? Wondering why your washing machine won't drain?
RepairClinic.com is a do-it-yourselfer's treasure trove, chock full of repair tips, information on how applicances work, and maintenance suggestions. It also stocks and sells hard-to-find replacement parts and repair manuals for most major brands of washer/dryers, refrigerators, air conditioners, humidifiers, microwaves, and other large household appliances.
A list of factory recalls for the past 15 years can help identify a problem appliance, and a useful 12-month maintenance calendar gives reminders about when to remove lint, replace filters, and clean drip pans to avoid later hassles. If you can't fix your appliance with the site's troubleshooting guides, email the "RepairGuru" with a more specific question.
what you should know: The recall list and repair information only apply to the 80 or so brands the company carries. Knowing your product's model number helps when looking for parts.
