Any time you purchase a large (or small) appliance you get a booklet with the product. These are most important when you need repairs. I have a file set up for 'large' and 'small'; not measured just by size, but by cost. Every piece of paper I have on that product goes into the file. I've written date of purchase and cost (a sales slip or invoice attached is good!) and I've written the model and serial numbers on the front of the booklets. All the information I need on my built-in or large appliances are at my fingertips when I need it. Take time now to find your paperwork and file all in one convenient place (if you haven't already); you'll never regret the time spent.
