Talking About Appliances

Hi there. My name is Kathy Mills. Welcome. I would like to use my site to share information about appliances. I spent my teenage years tearing down appliances for scrap metal. Throughout that process, I learned how to spot repairable issues that could be repaired in order to return the appliances to service with just a few quick part replacements.
