However, before looking into the attributes of a good appliance repair shop in South Africa, we have outlined a few things you need to check for you to be able to determine if your appliance is malfunctioning.The most common thing that will happen if your machine is malfunctioning is that it will stop working.

The appliance may not stop working entirely but can start flickering or going on off, which in most instances is not something that usually happens throughout the time span that you have been using the appliance. In this case, we recommend that you try and switch the appliance off, and if it doesn’t go off, then you will know that it is malfunctioning. For example, if you’re using a refrigerator, and you have a short trip to make, or you need to clean it, and you switch it off, and it still keeps going, then you know it is malfunctioning.

You should also check if and feel if the appliance shocks you if you touch it while it’s still on or when there is any contact between you and the circuits and wires that connect it. These shocks are not regular and will indicate that your appliance is not working correctly. The last thing that we recommend for you to check for is the issue of lights dimming when you switch your appliance on or getting brighter when you switch the appliance off. This could indicate that your appliance is overloading or a ground fault related to the wiring which needs to be adjusted as soon as possible.
