There are more brands that Electrolux produces appliances for on a third party basis but we will advise you if the information shown here is required in individual cases as we see appliances for Lamona, Kuppersbusch, Prima and others on occasion being produced by Electrolux.
For each model number there are often many variants as the appliances are changed over time, much as is the case with cars where, although the model designation may stay the same, components can and do change as well as features and functions.
This makes it imperative in many cases that you order parts for precisely the variant that you have.
Depending on what product it is you can have anything from one variant to over forty. Very often guessing will not prove fruitful and we strongly recommend that you contact us and let us look up the correct parts for you to ensure you get exactly what you need for the exact machine that you have.
In order to do this, we need some information from you that will be on your appliance.
The model number is sometimes enough to identify spares but, better yet and far more accurate is what is known as the product number or, PNC code. You can find this on the rating plate of the machine and it will look like this:
The number, as you can see is 11 digits long in total.
The first nine digits are the variant, the last two are the revision number within that.
The "Mod." above that is the model number in full. Very often you may see an abbreviated version of this on the facia panel and, like range names and so on you also see there like "Jetsystem", "Lyric", "Lavamat" and so on, these are largely useless when it comes to identifying spare parts.
In some cases, without this information, it is not possible to identify spare parts for an appliance.
To get to the part number is the most important thing to be doing as, from that you can then cross reference, find any alternative parts and so on as well as ensuring the part you get is correct.
Keep in mind that many, many spare parts are about the same size, look the same but this does not in any way mean that you can fit any as the differences are often slight but, means that they are not interchangeable. So, following the path here from the model but more the product code and to the part number is the only way to ensure you get the correct spare part for your appliance.
There are often scores of versions of a single part, things can change and it can be very confusing, we're here to help you through that and to prevent errors.
Guessing, using images alone and ordering because parts look like what you need, trying to measure things are by far and away the most common reasons that people get parts wrong. Please don't do this as it's hassle and cost you don't want or need, it's better to take the time and do it right the first time than try to fix it later.
All the more so as Electrolux will regularly change some parts meaning that they may not look exactly the same as the original part so it is vital to follow the path as explained or, you run the risk of ordering incorrect parts and, we don't want that so please check and/or ask if you're even slightly unsure.
