I don't think that it looks bad, but it does look similar to other company logos that I have seen. One thing that you should keep in mind is that company logos will often look a little boring, because the logo needs to exude a certain amount of professionalism, and should be clean and easy to read (with or without text). Which is what you have going for you in this design.

If I had any advise it would be that the text that you have feels a little like it was an afterthought, and doesn't feel like it is really part of the main visual element. Do you have thumbnails of your other designs?

If the background is brighter, than you might want to pick darker colors for your logo.

SInce it has something to do with appliance repair, you can use other icons like a tool icon and change your color according to the motif of your website.

Icons should not be used as a logo, because it becomes the company. You also should not change the logo to suit a website, websites change, logos should be longer lasting.

Its not bad I like your color scheme,

The house idea is a bit left field and not indicative of repair

perhaps something along these lines

A beach and an appliance are a tricky marriage.

Mm, perhaps it's not too bad. I like the idea of separating the beach and appliance concepts with the text so that not so much effort needs to be put into a "marriage".

Nice,

But generally due to printing limitations logo's are traditionally 2 colour or 3 colour Andrew,

especially if its letterheads, business cards etc etc....

But I like the general premise...

Oh I got to use UK colour instead of Yankee color...

It felt sooo good !

Possibly not what you intended.
