Q: Why should I consider an Extended Warranty?

A: An Extended Warranty is an insurance policy on your appliance that can help to offset the expense of future repairs. Extended Warranty plans are purchased as an add-on contract to your appliance and offer different terms of coverage. Cost is typically based on the price of the covered appliance and the term. Coverage can vary from one Extended Warranty company to another, and the terms of coverage should be provided to you at time of purchase by your product specialist. In most cases, the extended warranty activates when the appliance is no longer under the manufacturer's warranty; however, some extended warranty companies may offer coverage that applies from the time you take possession of your appliance(s). If additional questions, please contact your Sales Representative or Customer Service at 657-217-6690.

Q: Do I have to register my appliance? If so, how?

A: Most appliance manufacturers require their products be registered in order to file a claim and to set up service. The registration enables them to connect the appliance to you, the owner. To register your appliance, visit the manufacturer's website and have the following information ready: date of purchase; item Model #; Serial #; your address and contact information.

Q: My product needs service. How do I set it up?

A: If your product is under the manufacturer's warranty, file a warranty claim with that manufacturer. Double-check your warranty paperwork to determine if that manufacturer requires product registration. If so, ensure it is registered prior to contacting the manufacturer. Most claims can be filed by phone or on the manufacturer's website. Be prepared to provide the following information: Date of Purchase, Model # and Serial #. You may be asked a series of COVID screening questions for your safety as well as the safety of the service technicians. In some cases, the manufacturer may also ask troubleshooting questions to determine if your product can be repaired with their guidance. If not, they will schedule service with one of their approved service providers. If you have an extended warranty plan, contact your extended warranty company for assistance. If your warranty has expired and you do not have an extended warranty, some manufacturers have an approved service provider list, which you can locate on their website. For further assistance, contact customer service at 657-217-6690.
