If you're working in the appliance industry, you need to regularly be purchasing new equipment to finish all kinds of repair jobs. There are plenty of appliance repair professionals who rely on aftermarket products, which is fine. But they're losing out on all the advantages of buying from an original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

OEM is a company that produces parts and equipment that can be marketed by another manufacturer. Your appliance repair business won't be able to sustain itself if you aren't careful with your finances. The best way to adhere to your budget is to stick with OEM appliance parts instead of aftermarket products.

Whether you're in need of refrigerator parts, stove parts, or other appliance products, here are some great benefits of buying OEM parts instead of aftermarket products:

  • Return on your investment -- Though you might spend a little more early on, you're investing in a great part with great longevity, subsequently providing a significant return on investment (ROI). Since the appliance parts you'll be purchasing are designed to fit and perform to factory specifications, the equipment's lifespan will be lengthened. This will provide a great ROI and save you money in the long run.
  • Faster response -- Going directly to the OEM will streamline the entire repair process since you'll be able to contact them directly, identify a part, and make a purchase. Conversely, with aftermarket products, you could be calling multiple people all day and never even find the correct part.
  • Higher quality -- Perhaps the main advantage of working directly with an OEM is the quality of the product you'll be receiving. If your client needs new refrigerator parts, they are going to expect a certain level of quality. Certain aftermarket products can't guarantee that kind of quality -- OEMs certainly can.


In order for your appliance repair business to succeed, you need quality parts that are durable and long-lasting. If you want to learn more about the benefits of buying from an OEM, or find quality refrigerator parts, dryer parts, dishwasher parts, oven parts, and more -- give Automatic Appliance Parts a call right away!

Whether you're purchasing refrigerator parts, washing machine parts, dishwasher parts, oven parts, or stove parts, it's recommended to work directly with original equipment manufacturers. Doing this ensures that you're receiving quality parts that are constructed specifically for the machine model in question.

Refrigerator Parts

If a refrigerator is busted, not only will all the food inside be ruined, the owner will end up having to spend a significant amount of money on their energy bills -- not to mention future repairs or purchasing an entirely new refrigerator. Here are some busted refrigerator warning signs that homeowners need to keep an eye out for:

  • Back of the fridge is hot -- The back of the fridge is usually warmer than its sides and the front, but if it feels too hot, you might need a new part or some professional repair work done. If your fridge is very old, however, it's probably best to replace it.
  • Food begins spoiling earlier -- If you notice your food spoiling before its expiration date, you're going to need to act quickly. Sour milk and moldy cheese not only looks and smells bad but can cause health concerns if consumed. Food safety standards dictate that perishable items should be kept at a temperature of at least 40 degrees or cooler.
  • Excessive condensation -- Take a few steps back and simply look at your fridge. If it looks like it's sweating, you should analyze the rubber sealing around its door to see right away. If the sealing isn't too bad, you might be able to quickly fix the issue yourself.

Again, when searching for and selecting refrigerator parts, it's imperative to work with the OEM so you're getting the pest possible part available.

If you are in need of a specific part, use the manufacturer's model number here and you'll be able to see diagrams for your mode.
