Why OEM Parts?

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

The above quote is generally attributed to author, inventor, statesman and Founding Father of the United States, Benjamin Franklin and his advice is well-worth heeding.

Using price as your only guide to a purchase can be a losing proposition in the long run as some things are worth paying more for, especially when you use and depend on them every day — like your appliances.

Your appliances are made up of many different parts, but just one part breaking down can put your whole appliance out of commission. That’s why when you need a replacement appliance part, it’s best to choose an OEM or Original Equipment Manufacturer part. Why?

  1.  OEM parts are parts made by the manufacturer and they are exact replacements in terms of durability and material and meet strict quality control and engineering requirements set forth by the manufacturer.
  2. They are insured and come with a warranty. If the part breaks, the manufacturer will replace it.
  3. When you buy OEM, there is no guessing if the part will work with your appliance.  All OEM parts are made to work with your appliance every time.

A part has the potential to impact the function, performance and the lifespan of your appliance – positively or negatively. When you repair or replace a part, that part will be with you for as long as you own the appliance. OEM parts offer long-term value.

A poor-quality part will cost you more in the long-run when you factor in the time and cost of doing the same repair twice.

You have great expectations about your appliance, don’t get let down with inferior parts and accessories.
