A good appliance repair place?

wall of old dryersFred emails:

My dryer just died. Any suggestions for a good appliance repair place?

Anyone have a suggestion for Fred? Please share!

Update: Fred emails again:

Went with Bob's, as it was the only one with any web presence. $55 to diagnose, and they'll be here tomorrow, no extra charge. YaaaayOA

I don't know about repairs, but I know you can see about a rebate for upgrading to a newer, more energy-efficient model.

John Parkes is the man.

However, dryer repair is usually pretty easy DIY. If it's a broken belt, it's a 20-minute fix and a $15 part.

Joe Flis is great! He repairs all our appliances.

My husband and I have used Bob's Appliance Repair (518.439.0912) and they've always been reasonable!


I concur with Jen. Bob fixed our oven once, and he was fairly priced and showed up at the designated time. Recommended.

I second Bob's appliance repair. The guy knows what he's doing and prices are reasonable... I think.

I third Bob's (think he and son run around for jobs) . just comes over, 15 mins later the problem is fixed. I
don't think he's that cheap (both times that 15 mins. cost us a $100 service call--no parts for either) but whattya gonna do...he gets it done, same day, sometimes the same hour.

Cornwell Appliance on Central Ave. They're great people. http://www.cornwellappliance.com/

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
