Yes! Electronics Services provides repairs on both types of equipment (within legal limits) and this includes replacing seals, gaskets, back-up batteries, condenser fans, etc.

Can you provide electrical installations?

Electrical installations are generally the responsibility of Facilities Services or outside contractors, however depending on what the equipment or issue is, Electronics Services may be able to help, as we maintain a State of Texas Master’s Electrical license.

Can I bring stuff from my house for you to repair?

This departments responsibilities extend only to UT owned equipment. Work performed on personal items is strictly forbidden by UT policy.

Can you design something for me?

Consultations for design work are accepted on a case-by-case basis. Completion time frames must be flexible as repair of equipment is considered priority.

Do you ever work after hours?

Normal working hours are from 8am - 5pm, Monday - Friday, with usual lunch from 12pm - 1pm. Emergency requests or unusual circumstances may require later and/or earlier operating hours as well as weekend availability.

Do you do plumbing?

Do you work on autoclaves/sterilizers or dishwashers?

Autoclaves/Sterilizers and most dishwashers are the responsibility of Facilities Services. Usually, a tag indicating that Facilities Services is the designated repair entity, an equipment ID number, as well as the number to call for service, is displayed on the equipment. Some stand-alone units that are not hardwired/piped to building utilities may be serviced by this department.
