New Ware, Old Wear

H & M offers unused and reconditioned appliances


If you're wondering if your old stove will make it through another holiday season, perhaps it's time to check out the "scratch and dents" at someplace like H & M Appliances, where the prices on new or refurbished major appliances are some of the lowest in the San Fernando Valley.

Some new 30-inch Premiere [Tappan product] gas stoves with several extras--clocks, timers, bake and broil elements--that carry a retail price of $420 are $279 here, and the stickers on the refurbished stoves (with a 90-day warranty) start at $150.

A new 22-cubic-foot Amana side-by-side refrigerator retails for $1,100, sells at some discounters for $899, but H & M's price is $699 and, if that's too much for the budget, reconditioned refrigerators start at $149.

And where else could you find a reconditioned Maytag washer and gas dryer for $350 with a one-year warranty? Cooktops, dishwashers, microwaves . . . even vacuums . . . we found some great deals here.

Haim Tamsut started out as an repairman (wife Natalie coos that "he's a genius") and still maintains one of the lowest-priced repair services in town. Tamsut claims that his technicians can repair any make or model of household appliance, heating or air-conditioning, and the low service charge is $35.
