If you appliances stop working, you have to decide if you should fix or not. You have to decide whether to incur the costs of fixing them or whether it is better to replace them with new or used appliances. The age of your appliance, cost of repair, cost of a new or used replacement appliance, possibility of future fixing are the main factors you may consider in determining if you should get rid of your broken appliance.

Sometimes it will make sense to replace and sometimes it will not.

It appears that appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners, washers and dishwashers always break down right after the warranty period. Modern appliances use complex components which costs more to fix. Because of this complexity, companies attach difficult to understand warranty terms and short-term warranty. Most of the time, the age of appliance should be able to guide you if you should replace or fix your non-working appliance.

Appliances are becoming more and more energy efficient. So, the newer appliances will have lower operating cost. If your appliance is more than ten years old, it will make sense to replace the appliance with a new one (if the cost of repair is high and there is possibility that it will break again0. For dishwashers and washing machines, energy and hot water use are the two main factors to consider. Newer ones use less water and energy. However, dishwashers and washers are relatively cheap and cheaper to fix. If the repair cost is high, you may find that replacing it will be a wise decision (if it is older than five years). If a reputable company gives you written warranty that the appliance will be fixed if it breaks again, it may be worth fixing it. Be careful about the warranty terms. If you consider all the factors and compare the prices of a new appliance and repair, you may find that buying a new one will make more sense. If nothing else, peace of mind will certainly follow which is invaluable. Good luck!
