Looking for Part Installers Nationwide

2 posts in this topic

We've been selling our custom oven keypad replacement solution online for about nine months now and have run into this problem many times:

The customer doesn't feel confident enough to install the part themselves.  We have created pretty thorough installation manuals complete with detailed, high res photography to instruct them in what we already believe is a fairly simple operation.  Nevertheless, appliance control parts appear to be intimidating to the average homeowner.

Our product - The LinkBox: a small electronic module (typically half the size of an OEM control board) that installs on the backside of an oven touchpad next to the OEM control board.  The module has a mounting bracket on it that mates with the mounting bracket for the OEM control board.  It comes with a ribbon cable and two leads for L1 and N.  The ribbon cable connects to the OEM control board in place of the OEM panel's ribbon cable.  The L1 and N leads terminate in piggy-back terminals (or a special adapter depending on which model appliance the customer has) and are to be connected in parallel with incoming power to the OEM control board.  It ships with a 7" tablet that will automatically boot into the user interface and establish a Bluetooth connection with the LinkBox when powered on.  And that's it.

When the customer wants to have this installed by a tech, we will refer them to you, and you can charge them a typical install fee or whatever you want!  But it sounds like you get $50-$100 and a happy customer for about 10 minutes of work. 

At this moment, we are looking for techs in the following areas:

  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Maxton, NC

 

Please let us know if you can help!
