When it comes to the topic of serving your existing appliances with parts from Appliance Parts, there often arises a question about O.E.M and non-O.E.M appliances. Since we get so many questions on this, we thought it might serve some of our customers in differentiating between O.E.M and non-O.E.M appliances.
First, a definition: O.E.M stands for “Original Equipment Manufacturer”. Non O.E.M stands for “Non-Original Equipment Manufacturer”. Our policy at Appliance Parts Company is to have O.E.M products whenever possible. Often many of the non-O.E.M products we carry are no longer available from the O.E.M.
With the assistance of the many of our suppliers, Appliance Parts Company sources non-O.E.M that is either built for the O.E.M by the original supplier of the manufactured appliance, or has met strict quality control and engineering requirements set forth by us and or our supplier. We strongly believe that the price of any product is only a portion of the true cost. If an inferior product is supplied no matter what the price, failure costs or increased replacement cycle (labor costs) will often not be offset by the low initial price of poor quality products.
Appliance Parts Company has relationships with over 95% of the manufacturers we currently distribute product for. In some cases, we are their recognized warranty parts distributor.
