Helpful Tips for Your Home / Kitchen Appliances from Major Appliances in Calgary

Avoid the nuisance of a service call by checking our troubleshooting tips below and reading your appliance Use and Care manual.

Check These First

In many cases, problems with your home appliances can be solved by first checking the following:

  • Is the power cord is plugged in to a grounded 3-prong outlet? Does the outlet have the proper voltage?
  • Check the electrical panel for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
  • Make sure the appliance is not plugged in to a circuit that is protected by a ground fault circuit interrupter which, when tripped, will discontinue power to the appliance.
  • Are all controls properly set and not in the ‘off’ position?
  • Make sure the appliance is properly leveled. This is critical for your appliances to function properly.


Minimize the possibility of electric shock. Unplug the appliance from the power supply or disconnect power at the circuit breaker before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
