Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAMWhirlpool, Samsung, LG, Sharp, Panasonic, Sub-Zero and others) has been testifying in opposition to your right to repair.   

Their reasoning? You might hire someone they don't know to help you, but won't help local businesses to get the training and parts they need to help you. 

They argue you might hurt yourself if you try your own repair. Provide a manual or a diagram to make repair safer? Nope. 

They argue that their networked equipment is a cyber-security risk if they don't control repair --neglecting to mention that they produce fundamentally insecure products and then refuse to enable security researchers to help them improve security. 

This has to stop.  You bought it - you own it -- and its your choice of how to fix it. 

Recent Ridiculous Situations: 

Keurig, for example, doesn't sell replacement parts for their coffeemakers—not to owners or repair technicians. The machines are designed to be disposable.

Samsung's line of smart, web-connected fridges has suffered from buggy software and spotty updates. But investigating or modifying the software puts independent technicians at risk of violating copyright.

GE requires their own technician be paid to make a service call only to type in a password that tells their refrigerator that a repair has been made. Even if the part was original GE. 

An otherwise secure Casino was hacked through their Fish Tank.
