By checking your appliances regularly, you can make them last longer. If you buy a new one, be sure to save the instruction manual and the warranty document (if there is one).
How to take care of your appliances:
When you do maintenance or repair yourself, it is helpful to look at a picture of the inside of the appliance first. See pictures of home appliances.
Here are some tips for keeping appliances working:
- Make sure the appliance is plugged in
- If the appliance is under warranty, you can probably get it repaired for free
- If you can’t fix it yourself, call the 800 number and ask for a certified repair person. Ask ahead of time how much they charge and how long it will take them to fix it.
