Having your home’s most-used machines protected under warranty ensures you never have to be without functioning appliances for long. However, every warranty is different, and it is important to understand what they cover and how to activate them, so if the unthinkable happens, there is no delay between the breakdown and you getting the help you need.
Full vs. Limited Warranty
The first thing to consider is whether your appliance is under a full warranty or limited warranty.
What Is the Difference Between a Full and Limited Warranty?
- Full warranties often cover repairs or replacement within a specified time period. However, these warranties often come with conditions—for example, they might not cover normal wear and tear.
- Limited warranties are traditionally limited to specific parts or types of defects that are laid out by the manufacturer. Additionally, these warranties can be limited in covering only parts but not labor or require you to split costs with the manufacturer.

Appliance Manufacturer Warranty Repair Process
When your in-warranty appliance breaks down, the first thing you should do is call the manufacturer. They will confirm the warranty is still active and help you open a work order. Once you request Appliance Professional in Columbia for service, the manufacturer will typically send us the order so we can reach out to you to schedule an appointment.
After meeting with our Columbia appliance technician, you can rest easy knowing that we can handle it from here—performing a thorough inspection, ordering parts, filling out authorization paperwork, and repairing your appliance as quickly as possible.
Home & Extended Warranty Repair Process
Whether you have an extensive home warranty or extended manufacturer warranty, our team can help. Similar to manufacturer warranties, the first course of action is to contact your home or extended warranty company to understand the parameters of your warranty and open a work order. When you request Appliance Professional for the repair, the warranty company will forward us the order so we can contact you for an appointment time. Our certified pros will handle every aspect of your repair, so you can get back to enjoying your space.

“I’ve used these guys a few times in my own house and several times with my clients. They always do great work and are very reasonable for their repair prices. I’ve literally lost count of the thousands they have saved me over replacing fridges, dishwashers, etc.”Trey
“Our freezer was accumulating ice inside from a leak near the gasket. I was able to schedule next day service. They called 30 minutes before they were going to come (just like they told me they would) in the time window they said they would come in. It was so nice to be able to just leave work to be able to meet them at my house. Turns out the fix was super easy and they only charged me the service fee for coming out to my house. They are a really great company and I would recommend them to anyone.”Michael G.
“We had Nick come out to look at our dishwasher. He couldn’t have been more knowledgeable or a nicer guy. Took the extra time and effort to make sure we had all the information we needed. Even dog friendly! Thanks for the great help!”Steven L.

Thank you for doing what you say you will, when you say you will at a fair price!”Chris H.
