Regular maintenance of your kitchen appliances can help prevent costly breakdowns and extend the life of your fridge, dishwasher and stove. A Sears Home Services technician can check all three appliances at the same time. The tech will check for proper functioning and make adjustments as needed to prevent excessive wear and tear.

  • Inspect the ice bin for fresh ice and empty if needed.
  • Check the water dispenser for proper water flow.
