Should You Repair or Replace your broken appliance?
When you have to deal with an appliance that has broken down and requires repair, naturally you will wonder whether it is worth fixing or replacing altogether. And it is only natural to ask.
Of course, when you purchased your appliance it was a considerable investment. For sure, you were hoping to get many years out of. However, we also know appliances that are made today are not the same quality that they once were, even as most recently as the last 5 to 10 years.
Manufacturers are under more pressure than ever to deliver higher revenues and higher profit margins. Most of the household appliance parts and, even, whole units are manufactured overseas now where the cost of labor is much lower and allows appliance manufacturers to invest in new technologies.
The positive side of this is that newer, more efficient and energy-saving appliance models come out every year. And the old appliances become outdated, even though they might be still functioning well. At least in this situation, it is your decision whether to keep and repair the old appliances or get entirely new.
All we can say at I-fix appliance repair is that the price difference is considerable. And cannot be discarded easily.
Here are some ideas of average costs of appliance repair and replacement. Of course, the information below is based on average appliance use.

Should You Repair or Replace your Refrigerator?
Depending on the brand, you should think about replacing your refrigerator with a new one if the repair estimate is over $700+. It’s common, that a refrigerator that has been in service for a very long time, will eventually show it’s age. Of all parts it is the compressor will start to break down.
It’s been said that an average life-span of a refrigerator is approximately 8-16 years. You should budget approximately $1500 – $6000+ for a new refrigerator.
Average Costs for Stove and Oven Repair
An example of some stove and oven repair costs:

If your oven repair costs get into the $390+, you should consider replacing it. The expected longevity of an average oven is approximately 10 to 15 years, similar to the refrigerators. Average cost of a new stove or oven is around $700 to $2000+ range.
Washer and dryer costs to upkeep on a yearly basis is approximately $75 to $100+. Of course, depending on how often the unit is used. Washer repairs are fairly easy, and, most, involve just checking the connections and making sure that the hoses are secured.
Other repairs might involve:
- fixing or replacing the lid switch that controls the spin cycle (around $150+)
- replacing valves or gaskets, which can range from $165 and up.
You should start to think about replacing the entire unit if the washer appliance repair starts to exceed the $450+ mark.
On average, it’s been said that the washer appliance lifespan is around 9 to 12 years in total, so that’s something to think about. A new unit goes for anywhere between $800 to about $1700. But the trick is, you get a much better deal when you buy the whole team (washer and dryer), plus your laundry looks better.
