I usually buy the extended warranty for electronics from Best Buy. Like when we purchased our washer and dryer, we purchased the extended warranty, when it expired they asked us if we wanted to renew it and of course we did because it’s the little bit of insurance that is nice to have.
For items that we haven’t had a warranty or were just too old, there is a great local shop in Bay Ridge called Mr. Vacuum that repairs sewing machines, vacuums and air conditioners.
