If your appliance fails, it’s important to know who to call. Whether you’re thinking of contacting the manufacturer or a professional appliance repair company, here’s what you should know.
Contacting the Manufacturer for Appliance Repair
Before calling the manufacturer, you may be able to diagnose and repair the problem on your own by consulting the owner’s manual and troubleshooting on your own. First, ensure that the appliance’s maintenance is up to date. Plus, check to see if the required parts (such as condenser coils) are thoroughly cleaned and the breaker or GFCI outlet relay are properly working. A good way to ensure power is to plug in a lamp, hairdryer or cell phone.
If your appliance is still malfunctioning, consider calling the manufacturer if it is less than 1 year. If older than one year consult your owner’s manual for warranty. Their number can typically be found in the owner’s manual or online. To begin the diagnosis, your manufacturer will need the brand, model, serial number, history of the appliance, age of the appliance and current issue. Keep in mind that if you’re calling the manufacturer for factory warranty, you’ll need to have the original sales receipt to show where the appliance was originally purchased from. Otherwise, the manufacturer warranty may be invalid.
It’s important to note that not all repairs are covered with your manufacture warranty. Most of the time, they’ll offer only a “limited warranty,” which is typically limited to defects in manufacturing. Damage resulting from improper installation, repair, or maintenance may not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. Also take not if the warranty covers parts only after the first year. Most manufacturers cover 1 year of normal wear and tear and then selective parts for an additional duration prescribed in the owner’s manual.
