With a storied history dating back to the 19th century, General Electric has been a household name for generations. Given their longevity and reputation for producing reliable, efficient products, GE appliances are common fixtures in homes across America.
If you’re one of the millions who rely on a GE appliance to maintain a comfortable standard of living, it’s important to understand the extent of your appliance’s warranty coverage and options for extended coverage. This can save you a significant amount of money, time, and aggravation if your machine suddenly stops functioning as it should.
With a product line as expansive as GE’s, it’s no surprise that the precise terms of their appliance warranties are not one-size-fits-all. It’s always best to consult your appliance’s owner’s manual or contact GE’s customer service line for model-specific information. That said, here is some general information to help you get a handle on the probable extent of GE coverage.
GE provides a one-year manufacturer’s warranty for most products. These include:
GE’s warranty will cover all costs associated with repairing or replacing any defective product or part within that window. After the first year, GE may provide additional coverage for specific product components. These details for each product are too numerous to describe in full here, but let’s look at an example.
A built-in GE refrigerator will have a one-year warranty that covers the entire product, as described above. For an additional four years, GE may cover parts and labor necessary to repair the refrigerating sealed system only. This means GE would replace the compressor, condenser, evaporator, and connected tubing, but not necessarily other components, such as electrical circuitry.
GE’s warranty will cover only problems that arise from defective materials or workmanship. GE will not cover damage that arises from misuse, abuse, or improper installation. It will not cover products that have been harmed by electrical surges, accidents, fire, flood, or other disaster. Using a GE appliance in a commercial setting will void the manufacturer’s warranty, as will modifying the appliance after purchase.
Finally, it’s important to note that GE’s warranty covers only damage that impairs the appliance’s performance. The company will not cover cosmetic damage, such as dents or scratches.
So, how can you maintain your GE appliances after the manufacturer’s warranties have expired?
Many companies provide their own extended warranty coverage, but GE does not—at least not any longer. Since the early 2000s, an absence of a GE extended warranty program has required owners of GE appliances to pursue extended service plans through a third-party company.
This actually presents a potential opportunity. Liberty Home Guard can provide extended coverage for one or more GE appliances. Even if your fridge or washing machine breaks down from general wear and tear, we’ll have you covered. And you can be sure that your equipment will be repaired by a qualified, insured tech.
But you could also bundle coverage for your GE appliances with coverage for other appliances and systems in your home. Maybe you have a GE oven, but a Samsung fridge and Whirlpool dishwasher. With Liberty Home Guard, that’s no problem.
If your GE appliance has failed and the manufacturer’s warranty is still active, by all means take advantage of it! But if your warranty has expired, and you have that nagging thought of what if your appliance fails, give us a call at Liberty Home Guard.
