Consider Common Warranty Periods
You can be certain your appliance repair is covered, either by the manufacturer or by the store you bought the appliance from, if it breaks down within 30 days of purchase. If it breaks down within a year of purchase, you can still feel fairly confident that your appliance repair will be covered, as most manufacturers offer a one year warranty. Beyond that, though, you’ll have to do some digging.
Check Your Appliance’s Manual Or Your Receipt
If it’s been more than a year since you purchased your appliance, check your receptor user manual (you saved those, right?). These should have information about any extended warranty protection your appliance enjoys. If not, you can try to…
Contact The Store Where You Bought Your Appliance
If you don’t have your receipt, this could prove difficult. Nevertheless, the store where you bought your appliance should be able to provide you more specific details about your transaction, as well as information about the benefits of any customer rewards program you may have signed up for, which can sometimes include extended warranties or return periods.
Check The Website Of The Appliance Manufacturer
If you can’t find your user manual and you have no luck at the store, check the website of your appliance’s manufacturer, or call their customer help line. It’s there that you’ll be able to ascertain the specifics of the warranty that came with your machine, as well as discover details on any extended warranty protection available to you.
Check With Your Credit Card Company
If you have no luck with any of the above options, contact your credit card company if you purchased your appliance with credit! Several credit card companies offer free warranty protection up to one year after the manufacturer’s warranty as part of their consumer protection benefits. Connect with your credit card company to see if this benefit is available to you.
