Right to Repair Rules Should Mean That Your White Goods Last You Longer

If you believe what you read, and hear, then it would be easy to assume that we live in a ‘throwaway’ era whereby if something goes wrong, it gets chucked in the bin and replaced with a new one. Granted, the cost of some components in some goods (depending upon their age, of course) might mean that a replacement is the most viable financial option.

Knowing when to keep and when to fix

Unless you have equipment at home that can diagnose electrical faults or, you are an engineer then it really would be a matter or trial and error by way of a, ‘process of elimination’ This will be easier to do with some products than others, you may need to speak with a local shop that does home appliance repairs in Sutton Coldfield, especially if you need to order new parts.

Think practically

White goods are, essentially just machines, most will have mechanical features as well as an electrical circuit of some kind. If you understand how your appliance works, then you will stand a much better chance of being able to self-diagnose and, hopefully fix your faulty equipment.

You may or may not be aware that the Government have actually recognised some of the challenges that customers face with getting replacement parts for faulty goods. They have proposed a ‘Right to repair’ policy that legally requires manufacturers to keep spare parts available, on hand, to send out to customers as and when they need them. This will also be great news for repair shops who offer fitting and replacement parts services.
