Customer Reviews
Super for both the novice and the experienced handyman., January 28, 2003
Reviewer: rupiezum from Quincy, MA United States
This book is full of clear, concise instructions, great diagrams and detailed pictures. We've used it to fix vacuum cleaners, sewing machines, washers, dryers and garbage disposals - and I'm no handyman! Our super handy friend admired this book so muc that we got *him* a copy. It's an excellent reference guide to have in your home, with troubleshooting flowcharts and easy to follow explanations. I highly recommend this book!

New Fix-it yourself manual, November 29, 2002
Reviewer: Lap Hong from San Jose, CA United States
This is a very good book. But it is so confusing too many people.This book did not have a Volume 1,2,3 ...etc.When you ordering from internet.Buying used book, One thing you must watch for is what year and how many pages inside the book.

Long Time User, November 12, 2002
Reviewer: Lindsey S Wormley from Marietta, GA United States
I bought my first copy of this book over 20 years ago (Old Blue Cover ) after borrowing it from a friend. Myself and others have used it several times and saved hundreds of dollars . I myself have rebuilt a Dryer, serviced Washing machines, Refrigerators , Ranges, Dishwashers. After reviewing the newer edition and with the changes in appliances its time to replace it. More than pays for itself first time it's used. A must for any homeowner, Renter, unless wealthy and want to keep local appliance repair business in the manner to which they've become accustomed. Everyone that borrows mine has similar comments.

Every home needs this book, April 21, 2002
Reviewer: ROBERT C MASON from GLENDALE, AZ United States
This book has been a life-saver. As a first time homeowner I have used this book to fix more things then I can remember.

A must-have for do-it-yourselfers!, February 12, 2000
Reviewer: Lynn DeBolt from Mount Vernon, WA
When an appliance breaks down, it can be tough to scrape up the money to repair it. As a single income family, saving money is the name of the game! This book allows you to troubleshoot the most common problems, and most of the time fix it yourself! It's got other great tips and tricks as well, but I got it mainly for the help on our major appliances! Books on home repair are a dime a dozen, but a book like this pays for itself in just ONE use! A must have on MY bookshelf!

God book, but lacking in some areas, December 15, 1998
Reviewer: A reader from Seattle, WA
It's a good book, but lacks stuff like roofing repair, landscaping and other "necessities", while including stuff like fixing dolls which seemed unnecessary.

Excellent, October 6, 1998
Reviewer: yong@shell.com from Houston, TX
I constantly check it out from our local public library. I guess I need to buy a copy. I did a lot of car repairs when I was a student. Now I own a house and start to learn house repairs. Unfortunately a house doesn't have a manual. But this book is like a manual written for me.

Great guide to all types of help, October 5, 1998
Reviewer: A reader from Chicago, IL
I loved this book! I am a single female, and my dad bought it for me when I bought my first house. Now I'm going to buy it for a friend who just bought a house himself.

Just this weekend alone I fixed my ice maker and my garbage disposal using the book as a guide.

The pictures are great, and the language is easy to understand. I'd recommend this book to anyone who's looking for a great fix-it book.
