What is the lifetime of modern household appliances? In the documentation attached to household appliances, the manufacturer indicates the useful life of household appliances, but also need to pay attention to additional conditions, for example, can be specified:
The term of use is 7 years with timely replacement of failed parts.
The life of household appliances according to the manufacturers is.
- Irons, hair dryers, mixers, kettles, meat grinders and other small household appliances for 2-3 years
- Vacuum cleaners, rice cookers, slow cookers 5-7 years.
- Televisions 7-10 years
- Refrigerators 7-10 years
- Ovens, hobs 7-10 years.
- Washing machines 7-10 years
- Microwave -7 years.
What does this mean if the manufacturer indicated a service life of the refrigerator 10 years. After the termination of the release of a certain model of the refrigerator, plus you can add one year for a while until the refrigerator waits for its owner in the store, the manufacturer stops technical support for the product after 10 years, including the release of spare parts. It should be understood that in case of failure of the refrigerator after 10 years of operation, spare parts will not be produced for it. For example, you have a broken hinge on the refrigerator door or a handle; 10 years after the purchase you will not be able to purchase the necessary spare part, you will need to think about buying a new refrigerator.
Of course, it may well be that your refrigerator or other device will work and more time than the manufacturer indicated, it all depends on the intensity of use, and on the quality of the components.
This is the principle of doing business in modern conditions. Now every house has a TV, refrigerator, iron. Some household appliances change as new technologies emerge, (as an example, televisions in 2000 developed flat-panel televisions, then the screen resolution was increased, the opportunity to watch streaming video appeared), and as a result, over the past 20 years, users have changed their TVs to more advanced ones models. But in other areas (cookers, refrigerators) there are no such obvious improvements, so the lack of the opportunity to repair household appliances and stimulates consumer demand for the purchase of new models.
