Candu is an online home solutions provider that does the legwork of finding a repair professional for you. You tell them what’s wrong, and they choose a pro near you who specializes in those repairs to do the job. The company taps into an extensive network of local professionals that it handpicks based on experience, background checks and high customer ratings. Candu offers both diagnostic and fixed-rate (flat-fee) pricing that varies by trade. With fixed-rate pricing, you know what the total cost is before work starts.

How Candu works
The Candu repair process works in three simple steps:
- Tell them what needs to be repaired: Log in to Candu’s website to request service. The company asks for your ZIP code and a few other details. This helps Candu determine your pricing options.
- The company sends a Candu Pro: Agree to the price, and the company sends a highly rated Candu Pro to get started. Each Candu Pro must pass a background check before working with the company.
- Your satisfaction is guaranteed for six months: After the repair is completed, Candu backs that work for six months as part of the Candu Will Do Guarantee. If issues persist, Candu will send a pro out to complete additional repairs at no cost until you’re satisfied.
Candu offers flat-rate pricing on many repairs — if your issue is one the company can troubleshoot online, Candu shows you a price that includes parts and labor before a Candu Pro arrives at your house. The company bases its pricing off similar repairs in your area for your appliance.
For flat-rate repairs, the company charges an upfront fee to book your Candu Pro visit, and the rest is due after the repair is completed. All work is guaranteed for six months.
Candu also offers a diagnosis-only service that lets you receive a quote for parts and labor to fix your issue.
If you choose to replace your appliance, the company’s Candu Upgrade Program provides discounts on GE appliances and includes free delivery, installation and removal of your old appliance.
Candu DIY content
Candu offers a growing library of free do-it-yourself tips and videos. This lets you try a quick fix yourself before you book service – potentially saving you the cost of repair.

Very easy to schedule appointments, repair was quick and prompt! Appliances are hard to come by these days... The ones I looked to purchase were on back order for a couple of months. Being able to salvage and get more use out of my appliance for very reasonable cost is a great help! Thank you!
