      [Webinar] Appliantology Peer Group   02/08/2018

        We're doing something totally new this time! In this first ever meeting of the Appliantology Peer Group, we'll be hosting a roundtable-style question and answer webinar. Bring something you'd like to share with your brethren in the craft: it could be photos, a tech tip, new insights gleaned from recent training -- anything having to do with the business or technical sides of the appliance repair trade. If you've got something to show, we'll let you share your screen and give you the opportunity to teach us all something new. And of course, Team Samurai will be there to answer any questions you might have about how to use Appliantology.

    Customer mad NEW microwave does not power on. Wants a new one. Upon inspection found the new microwave was installed by husband with toggle bolts through the noise filter. Asked were was the supplied installation hardware. He didn't need them. Didn't know how to use the template. So he made holes were he thought they should be. Never a dull day.
