To obtain spare parts for your appliance Statewide Appliance Spares will require the model number of your product. We have compiled a list of the most common places model number information can be found for the most popular products.
Model number information for TV's in most cases is on the back somewhere. It may be in the centre, or on one side.
Most likely location of the model number information is on the back or bottom of the unit.
In most instances you will find the model number on the back of the unit. Some manufacturers though may place it on the bottom or side of the product.
Most manufacturers will not make you have to pull your fridge out to obtain model information on the back of it. Although it may be on the back, there is most likely a second copy (simpler version) on the inside of the fridge. If it is not located on the side of the door once you open it, look for it on the front edge of the fridge/freezer cabinet somewhere.
The location of model number information for airconditioners can vary greatly upon manufacturer, model and type of system. There are three main types of airconditioner systems:
This will consist usually of two seperate units. One located outside of the house/building, the other inside the roof cavity. The outside or 'outdoor unit' will normally have a sticker with the model information located on the side. Sometimes though it may be on the back, which could be difficult to read without a mirror if it is closely located to a wall. The inside or 'indoor unit' being in the roof cavity may be difficult for most people to get to. It will also have a sticker with model information on it. Depending on the manufactuer/model it may be possible to cross reference the indoor unit information from the outdoor model number.
These are very similar to ducted systems, but the indoor unit should be visible either on a wall (known as split system) or in the ceiling (known as cassette system). Outdoor unit information should again be on a sticker located on the side or back of the unit. For split system types, the model number is most commonly located on the bottom edge or side of the unit. Cassette units will most likely be located on the panel behind the filter cover/holder. Make sure the unit is not operating while you remove the cover, and check your owners manual if you are unsure of how to remove it.
Most of the time model number information will be located on the side of the unit. Unfortunately some installers aren't aware of this, and quite often is the case that it gets covered by the wall.
Most manufacturers will locate the model number information on the side of the keypad, which will become visible once you open the door. If you can't see it when you open the door (it may be on the door itself, or somewhere where the door shuts against) you will most likely have to look on the back of the microwave.
Most manufacturers place the model number on the control panel near the buttons & lights. Some front load washing machines may have it on the door or where the door closes onto if it's not visible on the control panel.
For most mobile phone brands, you will need to remove the battery to find the model number. If you have a phone where the battery is non-removeable then it is probably written on the front of the phone around the edge of the screen.
