Alex came out as promised when promised and made the repair on our icemaker. I appreciate his prompt and professional service.

I walked into a very wet kitchen floor this morning and quickly determined our refrigerator was leaking. I reached out to Big City via Yelp and within 10 min heard back from Val. We discussed a window of time we might meet later today and boom! the technician (Alex T) not only showed up on time but a bit early. He quickly went to work and the problem was solved within 90 minutes. Very efficient & fairly priced

I contacted them through Yelp at 9pm and they were the first to respond. Set up an appointment for 10-1 the next day and the technician arrived at 11am. His name was Ozzy and he was very nice, clean-cut, and respectful. Took about 40 minutes to diagnose the problem, get the part from his car, and get the oven working again.

My dishwasher has been a stinky nightmare these last few months. The water wasn’t draining, just sitting causing a disgusting smell at least once a week. I finally decided enough was enough and reached out to some appliance companies in my area of San Diego. This company responded quickly and their price estimate was fair. I was able to get s next day appointment at noon. Highly recommend!

This company was referred to me by my home warranty carrier. Leo was out the same day to repair my washer that was leaking. Badabing badaboom – fixed!! Professional – clean – knowledgable – great service!! Thank you Leo!!

Nick was amazing! He was polite, professional, knowledgeable, and fixed my dryer issue in the one visit which I did not expect! He also gave me some tips and some guidance about keeping my dryer in good shape with proper use. I would highly recommend working with them! Thank you, Nick:)!!

I have a 10 year old Kitchenaid Stove that the broiler quit working. Mark from Big City came out and new right away what was wrong. He had the correct parts with him and fixed it quickly. He was very polite, clean and tidy. Would use them again for any appliance repair.

November 3, 2021

Great job! My washer wouldn’t agitate or spin and it had been previously fixed by Best Buy when it was under warranty for the same issue. This time it is fixed and so quiet! I feel like Big City made it better than when a Best Buy fixed it! Thanks to the tech who came this am!! Happily not going to the laundry mat anymore!

Both our washer and dryer needed repair at around the same time, so we tried Yelp to get a quote.  It was a Sunday morning and we were pleased that Big City responded within minutes, offering to send a technician to do a diagnostic the same afternoon at a very reasonable price.  Vlad arrived on time and spent an hour with us, thoroughly going over each appliance.

February 27, 2021

Surprised to see a GE range microwave die after a year of home ownership.  Since it matched the other kitchen appliances I figured I’d give repair service a try to avoid having to buy a more expensive non-matching unit. To my further surprise Big City Appliace Repair came out to pull the unit & repaired same day for a low flat fee.  Service tech Mark was professional courteous and fast.  I’d use this team again!  Good luck

Very satisfied with their services and customer service! Val didn’t take too long to figure out what the problem was with my 20 y/o fridge. He’s is super knowledgeable! Excellent service. Very professional, did a great job at fixing our stove. The serviceman was awesome!

Frequently Asked Questions

What's Included in the Dryer Repair Service?

Our electric and gas dryer repair service entails examining the appliance to identify possible issues, performing maintenance work, and repairing/replacing defective parts. Depending on the extent of damage, we’ll either repair your dryer on-site or transport it to our workshop.

How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Gas Dryer?

As with other appliances, the cost of repairing your gas dryer primarily depends on the extent of damage and the appliance’s brand. Many things can go wrong on a gas dryer, so your gas dryer repair bill depends on the issues we’re dealing with.
Minor problems such as faulty dryer doors can cost as little as $40 to fix, whereas major defects such as broken thermostats can cause up to $150 to replace. Replacing a broken motor can cost as much as $450. On average, most of our customers pay between $100 and $180 for repairs.

What Causes Some Electric Dryer Repairs to be Expensive?

Generally, electric dryer repair is pretty inexpensive. However, the repairs can sometimes be expensive. Electrical issues are the main culprit if our technicians provide a seemingly high quote for a repair job. If your dryer needs a new heating element, the cost of repairing it will also be considerably high.

Is It Worth Having a Dryer Repaired?

The question of whether to replace or repair your gas or electric dryer depends on the problem you’re dealing with. Sometimes, repairing a dryer may not be a sensible decision, more so if it’s considerably damaged. If you’re unsure whether repairing your dryer makes sense, consider the 50% rule.

In line with this, don’t spend more than 50% of your dryer’s cost repairing it. So, if a dryer repair technician states that the repairs will cost more than $400, you’re better off replacing the appliance because the average cost of new dryers is $500-$800.

How Long Do Dryer Repairs Take?

Typically, the dryer repair service takes an hour. However, the amount of time it takes to repair a dryer depends on the issue you’re dealing with. If the problem lies with a door that won’t open, our technicians will fix it on-site and within thirty minutes. However, more serious problems may require the appliance to be brought to our facility for thorough inspection and repairs.

Do You Charge for Repair Services By the Hour?

Most companies that provide dryer repair in your area charge their customers by the hour. At Big City, we charge a fixed rate for our services. Our electric and gas dryer repair rates are determined by the scope of service we need to perform and not by the amount of time we take to do the job.

Our dryer repair services are available in La Mesa, Alpine, Lakeside, Poway, Chula Vista, and other areas all around San Diego county.
