Expectation does not always correspond to reality, especially when it comes to jobs that we are not used to doing. We know how it can feel when we try to repair something but things don’t go as expected. If repairs make your stress level rise, follow these ten steps to help you organize the job as best as possible.

2) Pay particular attention to the signals your device presents

Once you have confirmed that there is a fault, you can diagnose it with the help of an electrical tester.

3)  Obtain the brand and model of your appliance to look for the right spare parts.
