I remember the Chilton's labor guides in the auto repair industry - they are pretty much the standard a mechanic would refer to when determining the time it would take to do a particular job (replace a timing belt, water pump etc.) One of our family is starting a hope appliance repair service (at customer locations). Is there a standard labor guide to refer to in providing quote to a customer or is it just anything goes? (I'd much prefer to see some standard guide!). Besides being unfair to the customer, it would also be impractical in that one would have to already know about the labor time for every appliance, every brand, every model etc. There are thousand of 'em out there!
I have had two different household appliances repaired in the last year and they never worked properly afterward. When I call the repair shops to complain, I am told that since my items are so old, the parts are no longer available and they fixed them with the closest parts to the original they could find. I really think that if the proper parts aren't available any longer, the customer should be told and then decide with that information whether to go ahead with a repair.
My father wants to open up his own appliance repair business but he wants to keep working at his job while the business picks up. Is this possible or does he need to quit his job for tax purposes? Does he need to acquire a federal tax id so it wont affect his regular job tax refund? Please help me out here.
I have a whirlpool dryer that isnt producing heat while the drum tumbles. I have tested the coil and get 0 resistance. The thermal fuse also gives 0 resistance. what resistance should the thermastats give at room temp? I assume 0 and they do. Im lost on this one. Power goes to everything but it just wont work. Any appliance repair gurus out there know what i can try?
We have a Kenmore Washer. The lid switch is not funtioning properly..
My husband is not the "Maytag repair man", but he is logical, practical and can follow directions.
How tough of a job is replacing the lid switch?
For those of you who are home fix-it folks, and know what you're talking about - would an intelligent guy be able to muddle thru a job like this, or would you advise hiring the pro?
My laundry pipe is leaking excessive amounts of water where the drain pipe meets the floor pipe. How do I repair. My husband is too lazy so I will have to do it myself because I can't afford a plumber. Help.

Last year I returned to school for graphic design courses because I wanted to change my career after working for 10 years as a secretary. I loved the program and I thought I would love my new work life after I finished. However I have been working at my new job for about 7 months and am finding that still sitting in an office (among other things) is driving me crazy. Any suggestions?
I want to enter the computer repair field, but I've heard that a business degree is something I should get. What I would like to know is how would running a business be worth-while to my career in getting computer up and running again? I ask this, because I have little desire to set a business of my own, or run/manage the business of another.
So, I want to buy new home appliances for my new house but not sure which brands are most reliable. Currently I am thinking of buying a refrigerator, washing machine, microwave, and put range hoods on my kitchen. Some brands that I consider are Samsung, Fischer and Paykel, Electrolux, and BOSCH. Which of the best brands for common home appliances? Thanks
Our stove stopped working. Appliance man came out and said the circuit breaker needed to be changed (wrong size, loose fitting). About how much should I expect to pay electrician?
Like, when they do a bad job repairing appliances.
No, like when the sim has static electricity all over it. It won't go away if it showers or changes clothes. Help?
I would like to start a roofing company, too bad i live right across the border to missouri where they don't require a license. I am in Illinois, and there is an extensive and costly licensing procedure here, can I just do jobs across the state line?
I'm a teenager and i wanted to earn some money over the summer. I'm not old enough to get a job but i still want to do something. Any good ideas?
I am not looking for a job, i am looking for a site to help me find employees!!!
Fixing an ice maker and water filtration system for a stainless steel side by side refrigerator can cost more than the entire brand new fridge?
I understand when it is a small electrical item like a digital camera or laptops, but how can something as big as dishwasher, refrigerator, washing machine cost more to repair than repurchase?
When we moved in the cooker only worked in one of the ovens. This is stated on the inventory and now the landlord says its our job to pay for a new one. Surely, if the item is on the inventory, that means it's up to the landlord to pay for a new one? Especially as it has never worked properly?
I work very hard in an area of service that (usually) gets no tips. My employer pays me to do the job under a contract of "at-will" employment.
I love my job! I work my butt off for people to make their travel perfect. HOURS of work go into each itinerary. No tips.
But some workers in other industries are given tips for far less work.
Can you say why?
BTW, I am not a travel agent.
I am pretty dumb and looking for a job...i didnt go to college, so what is something i kan get with only a high sschool educaton
