Many times we see some of the electronic products in our home stops working like Electronic Iron, Kettle, Trimmer, Washing machine etc. and a few like to test their skills by trying to fix them at home but fail miserably.

Is it advisable to repair electronics at home?

If you know the circuit of the product or have knowledge of how to handle electrical equipment, yes you can do that provided you also have the required tools. However, if you are a novice and doing it for a trial the chances are you will make things worse or to the point where it will be irepairable. I suggest you never touch anything with electronic circuit since every brand/company has a different power supply and mother board.

Repairing a simple electronic problem like the broken connection of the appliances for it is done by a rodent or accidentally being cut off, I think there is no problem.

In fact, simple electricity is being learned during the high school days. Simple electrical problem could be done rather than calling the certified electrician or electronic technician.

Repair or removing fault in most electronic product generally needs opening the mother board or the power supply which has components of the different values in technical terms identified by their color coding. To rectify the fault you need voltage and amperage meters beside the knowledge of soldering. I agree one can repair electrical devices to a certain level but electronic devices are different proposition.

I would always refer this issue to a qualified technician because I don't have knowledge of electronic devices. If after checking the main switch and the on/off button for several times and nothing happens, I would automatically bring the unit to the store where I bought it to check if this is still covered by the warranty.

Therefore, it depends on the degree of repair that could be done at home, that needs a technician. But for those who are not in the know of how to do it, he must have to avail of the service of the licensed or authorized technician for that matter.
