MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The coronavirus pandemic has led to shortages of everything from toilet paper, to lumber and even coins. Now people are having trouble getting their hands on appliances.
When the pandemic hit, Americans started stocking up on food and needed freezers to hold it.
Then demand grew for refrigerators, washers and dryers as more people upgraded their appliances.
At the same time, the coronavirus forced many factories to shut down or scale back production, leading to shortages.

Many homeowners believe they can’t do without these two perks: home warranties that promise to replace appliances that cannot be repaired and Angie’s List, the popular website that recommends contractors and repair specialists.
But both have come under fire recently from key consumer organizations, which say neither is as valuable as people think.
The Consumer Federation of America, a national organization made up of more than 250 nonprofit consumer groups, took Angie’s List to task for, among other things, “always” listing advertisers first and granting only those businesses that advertise on its site a “top rated” designation.
Angie’s List “is subject to conflicts of interest because it is supported almost entirely by payments from the businesses it evaluates,” the CFA report said.

On Google we have 20 GREAT Testimonials and we are usually the only one on the map.
On Yelp we... I do not personally like Yelp.com they now gave me 3.5 Stars when I had 4.5 and 8 reviews. NOW They (Because of their 'Algorythm') I got only 3 reviews but under them 3 you see this sentance...
14 other reviews that are not currently recommended
All but 1 are awesome with 5 Stars. So they hide 14 from the front page I guess because I am not paying them.

Hello everyone it's Matt again owner, accountant, secretary, janitor and tech of Miami Appliance Repair.
Recently I tried a new answering service and tried to hire a new tech. Neither worked as I expected and if you were affected during this time period I am very sorry.
Both the Tech and the answering service is no longer with Miami Appliance Repair.
Back to doing quality one on one service. Yes there will be times that I cannot answer the phone due to volume alone. In Miami it is VERY difficult to fine someone you can trust to do a good job in your name. Imagine I have to trust an answering service in another state to send a tech around that I have little control of to your house. It is not fair to you and not fair to me.
I built this business to where it is today and maybe in the future we will expand but for now I need to focus more on quality and not quantity for all my customers.
So in closing if I do not answer the phone right away please leave a message and when I can I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thanks to each and every one of you who helped make me the #1 Appliance Repair Service in Miami, Fl!

Starting the 21st I Will Not Be Answering The Phone As Often and Thank God!
Yes it is true Miami Appliance Repair will begin an overdue upgrade. It took me personally 3 years to get to this point on my own. My name is Matt some of you reading this have seen me before in your home fixing your appliances and some of you are reading this for the first time have never met me.
Miami Appliance Repair is run 100% by me, yet there comes a time where things are necessary in order to keep up with the call volume.
We hired a new Tech. Jami as well. It has been like 4 weeks now and so far so good... He is not a 15 year tech but he did go to a tech school and has prior in home experience and he is not affraid to call me for help when needed.
Miami Appliance Repair is also starting a new Dispatch Service on the 21st of March. This means that before 9am and after 5pm we will now be able to take calls for the day or next day!
So many times I am either driving, eating, before or after hours, dealing with a currect customer, on the other line or behind a refrigerator and I cannot answer the call.
This may be the best thing I have ever done and if it gets too nuts I can always hire a 3rd tech to take on more calls.
Thank you to all of you who made this possible...

Have you ever gone on vacation only to come home to an appliance that no longer works? most likely a power surge of some sort hit the entire home. Usually caused by lightning or just a surge from the main power source from the power company.
I was just reading this article out of Chicago that this very thing happened to dozens of people! The power went out then once it cam back on most of their computers and appliances were zapped dead.
Dozens of Oak Lawn families lost power over the weekend, but the real problems started when the power came back on and fried their computers and appliances.
This is horrible I have so many people asking me what they can do to prevent this from ever happening?
Well the answer is usually nothing!
Other than unplugging your appliances but who does that... If you are in a huge storm then maybe that is something you can prepare for but an out of the blue power surge in the middle of the day while the sun is out is hard to prepare for.
Customers ask me if it is ok to put their appliance on a power protector.
I was told by my electrician buddies that it is not a good idea to put most appliances especially Refrigerators on power protectors because they told me that the motors run on such high amps that it can actually over time harm the appliance.
Yet I have seen some people have had their appliances on a protector for years in the garage of all places and be fine.
Electricity is very unique and does many strange things. It follows the path of least resistance almost like water. Once electricity power is in motion there is little to stop it until it reaches ground.

Woman 'shot' and wounded as she cooks a snack after bullets left in her OVEN explode
A woman cooking herself a snack has been wounded after the bullets her roommate left inside the oven exploded and sprayed her with shrapnel.
Aalaya Walker, 18, preheated the oven of her apartment in Tampa, Florida, on Monday to make herself waffles - not knowing that Javarski 'JJ' Sandy, 25, had stashed his pistol magazine with four live rounds in the appliance.
Ms Walker was hit in the chest and the leg by shrapnel from at least one round.
