Nope. My wife and I have had a tiny 2-technician appliance repair company for about 4 years now. (Me and one other tech.) Before that, I fixed surgical and medical equipment in hospitals (Biomed Tech, CBET) for about 8 years. Before that, We had a different appliance repair company for about 6 years. Regressing further back in time, I worked for another appliance repair company for about three years, fixed x-ray film processors for about 4years while owning a 4-plex and flipping one house, repaired appliances for another year before that, did quality control on ATM's at a remanufacturing plant for Diebold for about a year, and repaired appliances while going to electronics school. Oh yea, I also worked in an Italian restaurant (salad maker), cleaned hog poop out of stalls, picked rocks up out of a farmer's field, mowed grass and cut firewood to buy my first car.
Hey! We fix those when they go out of warranty! They're reliable and well built but a little pricey. I'll bet I've touched some of the same machines you have.
