Hello AJ, i'very been repairing applianeces since 1999 when my brother needed help and taught me on the job. We were independent contractors at first and then we're hired by Sears. For 2 years we slaved and then left on not so good terms but we were free again. Still doing it and business is really picking up. Gonna start doing Samsung recall work next week. I own and operate East Camden Appliance Service in South Arkansas. This is a great site. The manual selections are great. Never seen better appliance forum.
