Searching For Range Or Fryer Replacement Parts? Here's How To Find What You Need

You're probably looking for parts because your range is old, busted, and not in service. Replacing it is completely out of the question. That would be too easy. So you're trying to decide if all the time and effort spent finding replacement parts is worth it. Here's how you can have a fully functional and safe range in your kitchen again.

Look On the Range 

The best place to start your search is on your range itself. Check for any markings or labels that indicate who manufactured or sold it. Most major brands will have this information somewhere on their appliance; if not, try looking inside for an invoice from when it was purchased or installed by an authorized dealer or service technician. Sometimes these details can be found in an owner's manual that comes with every appliance. The model number of your range may also appear on a metal tag just below the knobs on top of your unit.

Search Your Paperwork

Another place to look is in your paperwork. If you bought the appliance new, it should have come with a manual or installation guide. This will have detailed information about the model number, serial number, and type of appliance you purchased.

If you bought an older range used, there's still a chance that the previous owner kept their manual. You can also contact the manufacturer directly to ask if they have any service manuals available online or by phone. The manufacturer might even be able to tell you exactly which part needs replacing based on these details alone.

Look Up the Serial Number

If you want to order replacement parts for your range or fryer, it's important that you know what kind of model you have so that you can find the right part for your specific model. To do this, look up the serial number on your appliance and determine what type of model you own. You can usually find this information by looking at the back or bottom of your range or fryer where it says the brand name followed by numbers and/or letters.

Take a Picture of Your Part

When you need to replace a range or fryer part, the best way to get the right one is to take a picture of it. Even if you're not sure what part you need, getting a picture of your broken appliance will help the repair service find it for you. The best way to get an accurate picture is to place your phone on top of the appliance and take a photo looking straight down at the part in question. 

It's definitely worth it to replace old range parts with new ones. It's easy, and it doesn't even require leaving your home. Contact a supplier such as a Southbend parts supplier to get what you need to repair your range.
