Helping you to find the model and serial number of your product.
You will usually find the model
and serial number on a metal or foil plate like these samples . They
may consist of letters, numbers, dashes and in the case of Kenmore,
There may also
be additional data on that tag which may be required. All this data
should be handy when making a parts inquiry. These include the MFG
manufacturing number (Amana), type number (Woods), run number
(Jenn Air), series number (Maytag), B/M bill of material
number (Maycor built fridges), style number (Westinghouse) or a
service code (Thermador, Danby).
It is important
that the exact and complete reference numbers be taken from the
model plate on the appliance only. It is also important that you
NOT rely on these
numbers when found on the sales bill, shipping carton or owners
manual (unless you copied it from the tag on the appliance). These
areas usually only have partial information and may cause improper
parts to be ordered.
Additionally, the energy guide label (like the one show above)
usually has only a partial model number listed and should also not
supplying the model number over the telephone, be aware that some
letters sound similar and may be confused. Letters such as 'S' and
'F', 'M' and 'N', and 'B' and 'D' are the most frequently misheard.
On these occasions try to make clear exactly which one you are
referring to. E.g., 'S' as in Sam or 'M' as in Mary.
