Home appliances are not something that you buy in a jiffy. After a lot of research and thinking, you finally decide on one, especially large appliances. You spend a hefty amount on buying them, so you definitely would want them to perform. Well for at least 8-10 years. Most of you may know that home appliances come with a minimum of 2 years manufacturer’s warranty. This simply means if there are any mechanical failures, you need not worry about spending extra on getting it fixed within the warranty period.
A refrigerator usually has a lifespan of about 8-10 years, so just 1 or 2 years of manufacturer’s warranty is not enough.
Whether it’s a valve failure, temperature adjustment malfunction, compressor malfunction or cooling issue, repairs can be very expensive and can cost you nearly 20-30% of the price of your fridge every single time it breaks down.
Air conditioners also come with a standard warranty and they don’t break down frequently.
But when they do, the repair can literally burn a hole in your pocket. After the manufacturer’s 1 / 2 years of warranty, maximum complaints reported by consumers over the years have been about compressor malfunctions, blower issues, thermostat malfunctions or display failures.
All of these can be easily repaired by a professional technician from the brand authorized service center and at a minimal fee, if you consider buying the Extended Warranty plan while purchasing the A.C.
A problem with this appliance can cost you over 50% of the price of your washing machine. What’s worse is the unavailability of parts at times and these repairs can ruin its life if it’s not fixed by a professional.
Motor or drum malfunctions are most common, but washing machines can also have control panel/circuit malfunctions, gearbox failure and sensor failures to name a few.
To fix these, you need a brand-qualified technician for proper diagnosing and repairs.
