Keeping your little electronics running is just a matter of simple maintenance. Simple but it may be, this maintenance is crucial for your small appliances to work properly. This, in turn, is crucial for your everyday happiness. Who could possibly enjoy a day where the hairdryer suddenly sounds like garbage, does the remote control stop sending messages to your DVD player and the cordless phone sounds in the middle of an important conversation?
Small electronics used to be manufactured in a way that allowed them to last for years and years, apparently without much effort from consumers. Todays small appliances, however, often begin to work with just a few years from the purchase.
Perhaps their more streamlined, lighter design needs a little more care. Perhaps the trust in batteries made these small electronics more vulnerable to malfunction. Or maybe these appliances and electronics are those that have never been years ago and they are just more temperate than consumers would like them to be. Whatever the reason behind it, follow these tips to keep your electronics running properly.
The first step to keep your hair dryer working properly is to use it properly. Never pull the cord to disconnect it from the power outlet. Instead, pull the plug and gently pull it out. This should prevent the cord from worn or broken.
On the back of the hair dryer you will see the filter or ventilate. Sometimes this section gets clogged with unwanted dirt or lint. If it is not cleaned periodically and all lint and dirt is removed, the engine may burn out. The hair dryer stops working and you will remain with a head of wet hair.
Clean this area with the hair dryer regularly. Pull out the hair window before cleaning. Use an old toothbrush or cotton tip, remove all dirt and lint from the ventilated area. If you wait too long to perform this maintenance work, you need to work a bit more difficult to remove the build. If it has been severely clogged, try a pair of tweezers very carefully to remove the structure.
Portable electric heater with fans
Always use your electric heater correctly to prevent damage. When removing the heater from the location, grasp the plug and gently pull it out of the socket to prevent the cord from worn or broken.
The heat sink area with the fan and valves must be vacuum cleaned properly with the brush fasteners. If for some reason you do not have a vacuum cleaner, try using an old toothbrush to wipe away any accumulated dirt.
The remote control
The most important thing to remember with a remote control is to avoid dropping it. You should also clean it periodically to remove dust or lint. Use the brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner or a lint-free cloth to clean it once a week. To keep the contacts clean, use a pencil paper and rub them gently twice a year.
Smoke alarm requires very little maintenance, except that you sometimes remove dust. Always use the vacuum cleaners brush bracket to remove any accumulated dust. Be aware of the replacement time for your special smoke alarm model, as these items have limited lifespan.
The first step to keeping your electric mixer work properly is to use it properly. To avoid burning out the engine, avoid mixing of dense foods with your electric mixer. If your mixer starts working or showing signs of difficulty completing the task, turn it off immediately. Continue mixing by hand instead of risk of destroying your mixer.
Although many people have cell phones today, everyone with a cordless phone will have to take care of the whole year. Clean it regularly to remove dirt and dirt. Update the contacts on the base and handset using a pencil eraser to rub the contacts. Avoid placing the handset near other heat generating devices.
If you want your small electronics and appliances to remain and perform their duties properly, you must take care of them. It not only means you use them properly, but it also means that you store them properly. Store them in a covered box to prevent them from accumulating dust and dirt. Tighten the cables and secure them to prevent accidental twisting or damage. If you take care of your equipment, it will be much longer.
