  • Appliances situated in caravans or on boats.
  • Glass hob tops.
  • Food loss or spoilage.
  • Repairs as a result of misuse, negligence or poor installation.

  • Refrigeration products such as fridges, freezers, air conditioning units, dehumidifiers and certain tumble dryers require refrigerant gas to operate correctly. If your appliance requires refrigerant system work we can only undertake this work where the gas type is R600a. We cannot carry out refrigerant system work on any other gas type. Please review the the rating plate of your product to determine the gas type.
  • If our engineer visits and finds that your repair falls into any of the above categories we will cancel the repair and arrange to refund you the fixed price fee paid less a call out / administration charge of £45.00.

Your Fixed Price Repair Appointment

1.
On completion of your quotation and acceptance of our terms and conditions your credit card will be charged at the agreed fee the next working day.
2.
You will receive an email or postal booking confirmation and invoice. This will contain your job number and the date the engineer has been booked to visit.
3.
Our approved service engineer will call out on the agreed date and carry out the repair to your appliance. If any part(s) are required the service engineer will usually order the part(s) within 1 working day of the call out.
4.
If the parts required are in stock they will be delivered to the engineer within 2 working days of the order being placed.
5.
If the part(s) are not in stock we will arrange to obtain the part(s) from our suppliers and will keep you informed of progress (normally via phone). As soon as the part(s) are available our service engineer will contact you to arrange a new appointment date to complete the repair.
6.
It should be noted that unfortunately there are a handful of manufacturers whose parts are not easily sourced and in some cases these have to be obtained from abroad which will result in a delay in completing the repair.
7.
All repairs will require full and easy access to the appliance (e.g. able to be moved from under a work surface without damaging the surrounding facia). If your appliance cannot be easily accessed to facilitate the repair we reserve the right to abort the repair. In such instances we will refund you the original fixed price fee paid less a call out / administration charge of £45.00.
8.
Parking that gives reasonable access to your property must be provided for the engineer. If the parking is pay and display or permit controlled, it is your responsibility to arrange for the engineer to park free of charge for the duration of his visit.

Changing or Cancelling Your Appointment

9.
You may change or cancel your appointment date at any time up to 16:00 on the day before the original agreed call out date. If you wish to change or cancel your appointment please call our Customer Services Department on 0844 557 3701. In this case you will receive a full refund.
10.
If you cancel the fixed price repair at any time after 16:00 on the day before the agreed appointment date we will refund you the original fixed price fee paid less a call out / administration charge of £45.00.
11.
If our approved service engineer cannot gain access to the appliance on the agreed appointment date you will be charged a call out / administration fee of £45.00 with the balance of the fee paid refunded to you.
12.
If we or our approved service engineer has to change or cancel your selected appointment date and any alternative date offered is unacceptable to you we will give you a full refund of the fixed price repair fee paid.
13.
If you wish to cancel whilst your repair is in progress, for example, the engineer has visited once but will need to return to complete the repair, we will refund you the original fixed price fee paid less a call out / administration charge of £45.00, provided no parts have been fitted. If parts have been fitted, you will not be eligible for a refund.

If We Cannot Repair Your Appliance

14.
15.
In a few instances the required part(s) may not be readily available from our suppliers and may have extended lead times where they require sourcing from abroad.
16.
If after a period of 6 weeks, beginning from the first call out, the required part(s) is / are still outstanding and the appliance is inoperable either party has the right to cancel the fixed price repair. In this case you will be entitled to receive a full refund of the original fee paid. This can be arranged by calling our Customer Services Department on 0844 557 3701
17.
If it is found that your appliance doesn't contain R600a gas and the engineer is required to work on the gas system, we will be unable to complete the repair. In this instance we will refund you the original fixed price fee paid less a call out / administration charge of £45.00.
18.
We reserve the right to cancel a fixed price repair if on evaluation or during the repair:
a.
b.
If the appliance is less than 8 years old and parts are found to be obsolete.
c.
If the service engineer deems the appliance un-repairable.
In these instances you will be entitled to receive a full refund of the original fee paid.

Guarantee period

19.
The fixed price repair is guaranteed to cover the initial fault for 90 days from the date the repair is completed.
20.
If your appliance fails with the same fault as detailed in your initial repair, we will arrange to send the original service provider back to you at a mutually convenient time at no extra cost. In the event of the fault re-occurring during the guarantee period please call our Customer Services Department on 0844 557 3701.
21.
If we have arranged for an engineer to re-visit but you subsequently wish to cancel you may do so up to 16:00 on the day before the agreed call out date. If you wish to cancel after this time or during the repair, you will be charged a call out / administration fee of £45.00, which will be charged to the original card. Calls made directly to the engineer to request a re-visit are not covered under this guarantee.
22.
This guarantee does not cover any subsequent unrelated breakdown / fault(s) to the appliance. If you request an engineer re-visit and an alternative fault is found and you wish to continue with the repair, you will be given the option to purchase an additional repair at the original rate.
23.
The guarantee becomes invalid if the appliance is not used in accordance with manufacturer guidelines, moved within the property or to a new address.

Other information

24.
25.
We aim to repair a wide range of kitchen appliances, but the manufacturer, appliance type, model and age will have a major influence on whether we can promptly obtain replacement part(s) and ultimately complete the repair. It should also be noted that once a specific appliance is no longer made the manufacturer will only retain replacement parts for a given period.
