About Us

The Mending Shed was founded by Craig Palmer who had a strong belief in not wasting and a love of tinkering. With the help of his new wife, Ellen, they opened the doors for The Mending Shed on June 16th 1971.  We originally started in a one room shed, located on State Street in Orem Utah as a repair shop for household appliances.  Over the years we have been a thriving small business specializing in a wide range of repairs along with a fully stocked showroom and a growing online store. We are still located in scenic Orem, Utah and are close to Salt Lake City, Brigham Young University and many world famous ski resorts including Park City, Snowbird, Deer Valley and Sundance.

At the height of our shop we were an authorized service center for many name brands with an experienced team of repair technicians. Items we repaired included: vacuums, clocks, lamps, electric shavers, microwaves, appliances (both large and small), power tools, canning equipment, and motorized toys like Razor Scooters and Power Wheels vehicles.

If you prefer to do your own repairs, we make it easy to get the parts you need. A few of the things we have on hand include: weights and gaskets, oven and range elements, pressure cooker and canning weights and gaskets, common fridge and washing machine replacement parts, KitchenAid Mixer and Blender parts. If we don't have the item you need we can special order it for you. Just call us with your model number and we will find the part you need and you can pick it up when it arrives.

If you are not local to us, we can ship any item we have in stock, even if you do not see the item on our webstore.

The Mending Shed is Utah County's largest source for major appliance parts.

Our Major Appliance section is currently under construction, only a very small portion of the items we stock are listed online. If you do not see what you are looking for, please call us, we probably have it in stock!
