Make the appliance unsafe for use
Each appliance has a safety procedure that the manufacture puts to avoid injuring the users. For instance, appliances like iron boxes have layers of insulation to avoid electric shock while using the iron box. This is just an example of the precautions manufactures put while making electrical appliances.
While trying to repair such appliances, you are likely to interfere with the set safety precautions. This makes the electrical appliance a danger to you. For example, when repairing an electrical iron box, you are likely to leave the wires exposed making them dangerous to the person using it.
Affect the normal working
Electrical appliances like fridges and heaters have controls that determine how the appliance is supposed to work normally. Trying to repair such items by yourself is likely to interfere with the controls. This means that if an appliance like a heater is supposed to heat at a certain temperature, it will end up overheating.
Overheating of the water heater will be reflected in the power bills because this is not the normal functioning in the first place. Professional electricians understand all these aspects of repair, and they will make sure that the appliance goes back to normal working condition because they are the experts.
