ApplianceJunk.com turns 5 years old today.
« on: June 28, 2012, 12:21:06 PM »
It was five years ago today that I started ApplianceJunk.com, seem like just yesterday.

I like to think we have helped a lot of people in the past five years and I look forward to us helping many more in the years to come.

This site would not be what it is today without all the help I have received over the years from the technicians that volunteer their time to help answer questions our members post.

A few of the techs that help out have been with us since day one and some of you are new to our site, old timer or new tech to our site I sincerely appreciate each and every one of you taking the time to help us out.

Thanks for all the help guys.  O0

I am not trying to push you into a situation that your are not comfortable with, but you have paid good money to have a honest opinion,  so you can make the decision as to how much you are willing to spend to fix your fridge.   I would be heading  back to this firm  that cheated you out of your money,  and try to recoup it.   Usually when you have the facts,  and its still fresh in their mind,  they face will probably show clearly that they tried to screw you and got caught.   My daughter has a furnace tech charge her 286.00 to tell her that the heat exchange was gone in her older furnace and tried to sell her a 5500.00 new unit.   She called me, so I looked at it,  and we changed out the board for 168.00 and all is running just fine.   I went in and recovered the dishonest diagnostics bill from him,  and life carries on.   You have the right to be charged, as long as they did a honest evaluation.  In their case and the information you posted,  they were not even close.   I could just tell with the digital picture you sent.   Make them responsible.  If you don't, this stuff just carrys on to the next customer looking for help.   I prefer steady customers, that trust me.  Most of us make a living on trust, and being honest.   I am closing in on 30 years in the business now.  Brent@CanBC

Yes AJ,  congrats on your 5 years.   My business is about to hit 30 years and it also feels like I just got started.    Your site here has attacted some really good honest Techs, to help in the Appliance industry,  and the folks that buy the stuff we work on.   This is a very reliable site for the Home owner, and for the Techs looing for help, or manuals.  Thanks AJ and the Techs that frequent this site.  O0   Brent@CanBC

Naw I turn 60 on Oct 23 Brent. You got me by a couple years.
Friday i bought a 6 pack at dollar general and got carded. Then yesterday I got to wondering if my DL was current. Senior moment. Not due till 2014.

When  I last got my DL renewed I put I in the place where you put race. The clerk looked at me (My Grandma Emma was a full blood Cherokee) and said you gonna need papers to prove you is an indian. I looked her in the eye and said not Indian , Irish!  :rofl:
