Hey appliance tech and service manager here.  Just found the site through a friend and interested in signing up.  Working mostly on Whirlpool in and out of warranty with about 12 techs under me.  Hoping to find some good resources here and share my experiences with the group.

Howdy, I'm Chris. I fixed appliances as a field technician for one of Whirlpool's most successful contractors for a few years. The hours were long, the customers were ridiculous and the appliances are getting cheaper. I specialized in Whirlpool's brands but did some other brands on the side. 90% of work was warranty. Before appliances I did TV repair for 7 years, quit around the time they started replacing LCD with LED and 4k screens. Thankfully I never did the grueling sales work at A&E, although it has been offered and turned down more than once. I did 9 to 12hr days with an average of 13calls/120miles driving. I will not go into detail who I worked for or how we did things in public. (Private is OK, just ask)

Certified through Whirlpool to work on any product they sell, certified universal with EPA (through esco), certified through PSA. (Still Graduate, didn't go for Master) I knew my regional service manager of Whirlpool on a first-name basis, still not sure how or why but he knew me too. I also took a 1,500 hour class on Appliance Repair.

Simply put, I'm looking to chat with other technicians, maybe learn something here or there.

Hello,   I worked for Lee's appliance repair for 6 years doing factory service on all makes and models and have now started my own business. I am not set up as a factory servicer yet.  Would like to be upgraded to technician to be able to talk to other techs.  Thanks Jeff
