Appliance repair technicians are the people who come to the rescue when our dishwashers leak or our ovens won’t light.

They use their mechanical and electrical expertise to install and fix washers, dryers, stoves, fridges, dishwashers, microwaves, and other appliances.

That’s the basic job description.

But if you become an appliance tech, what would you actually do on the job? What would your daily routine involve?

In this post, we explain the common tasks appliance technicians perform and what a typical workday might look like.

Rising Demand for Appliance Technicians in Ontario

If you ask the average person to name some skilled trades, there’s a good chance appliance repair won’t make the list. It just doesn’t come to mind most of the time.

Which is a shame, because this is a fast-growing field with a ton of opportunities across Ontario.

Appliances like fridges, ovens, freezers, washers, dryers, and microwaves are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex. And there aren’t enough people with the technical expertise to service and repair them.

The truth is that the demand for appliance technicians has been rising steadily for years. And it’s expected to continue growing for the foreseeable future.

Think the world doesn’t need any more appliance service technicians, because people just throw out broken units and buy news ones? 

Think again! Sure, in some cases, a broken appliance may be cheaper to replace than fix. But many of today’s high-tech “smart” units do not fall into that category. 

And there is huge demand for technologically advanced major home appliances. Market research shows sales are up and expected to keep climbing in the years ahead. 

“The Canadian home appliances market is recording growth numbers and is largely driven by the innovation in the appliances...  

The products with multi-utility, smart features, that look simple yet more fashionable than the usual ones are gaining more significance and wide appreciation by consumers. 

These “multi-utility, smart” machines need highly skilled appliance service technicians for maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair. 

Companies like Whirlpool Canada can’t find enough service technicians with the right skills to service these highly evolved appliances.  

And that’s exactly why we launched our Appliance Service Technician program in partnership with Whirlpool Canada.
