Here are some logos from other companies in the appliance business.

Just some examples of what the big boys are using for logos. :)  I think they all look very professional. 
 
They should look nice, they have full time graphic designer that get paid big bucks.   ;D

No reason why you should haven't something nice also.  While I'm better dragons than 'appliances', will try and think appliances for a while.  :D

I decided to give this a shot. The only problem is that I'm not that good at drawing, so the logo looks kinda meh right now. Anyway, it's not really related to appliances, it's more reparation-related.
Please give some feedback on the idea, and if it's not too bad I can try to make it look better. Thanks!

Hi John... everyone... :)

A couple of questions, if I may.  Are you looking for a simple two color logo or can it be something more complex? 

Also, there is the matter of size... file size, that is.  If you intend to use the logo strictly on the web site, the resolution doesn't matter very much (computer screens can only see around 80 pixels per inch).  But if you'd like to have the option of the logo being reproduced on things like mugs, mousepads and t-shirts... you're going to require a final image that is at least three times the size of the finished print.

So, let's just start with the web site logo... what dimensions (in inches) did you have in mind?

I'd like to attempt this... but I need a little more information.

Thanks very much,

Helen

I think something simple would be good.

I'm looking for a logo that we can use not only on our website but also on items at http://www.cafepress.com/ and at our local embroidery shop.

We will also use the logo in print such as on business cards and letterheads.

We would like to be able to use the logo any place we decide to. :)

The one I created that is at the top center of our page now is 355x60. I think that seems to fit the page pretty good now.
Hope you find our website helpful.

Often it is best to make the original 'product'  high resolution for print unless it's only for web use.  You can always go smaller in size, but lose quality if you try to go from small to large. Someone who work with graphics will have little trouble making adjustments for various type of products.  I think several of us are pondering on what we would like to do - be patient, John.  ;)
