The general use of appliances is pretty straightforward so unless there's a random object in an appliance that you're wondering about, odds are you didn't go through your owner's manual when you got any new appliances. The best piece of advice we can give you is... keep your owners manual! Put it in a safe place that you'll remember because when a light goes off that makes no sense to you, it will save you a lot of time if you still have that manual to pull out.

in fact if you purchase and install an appliance yourself, there may be several things in that box that could be important. Sometimes there’s warranty information in there that could potentially save you a headache down the line.

There may come a time that something isn’t working right or, if you’re truly unfortunate, completely fails. The first step after trying everything you can think of should be to consult your owner’s manual. They generally have several troubleshooting steps that could save you a phone call or trip. With inexpensive appliances like a cheap dustbuster, this may be a minor nuisance but, if you’re trying to troubleshoot a serious problem on a major appliance, you could be at a serious disadvantage without that manual!

Even if you’re resourceful and know how to peruse the internet looking for solutions, it can still be quite the hassle trying to pull numbers off the appliance while running back and forth to a computer. The manuals have all the information you need including model numbers.
