Let’s take a look at other examples that tend to be confusing.
Below is an Alliance Laundry Systems product tag for a Speed Queen product. Notice the full model number is required and not DV2000WE which is the Product Code.
Just the opposite is Bertazzoni, after receiving the tag and calling their customer service line we were informed NOT to use the model number. Even though the field name says MODEL they want the CODE number under the model number when filing a warranty claim.
Another difficult tag to read and interpret is the Bosch Home Appliance family of products. On some of the tags all the information is provided and on others tags you need to determine which of the characters/numbers are to be included in the 9-digit numeric serial number that is needed to file the warranty claim.
If you clearly see the FD: and the Z-Nr. adding the number after those characters will equal the 9-digit serial number: 021100367, 930700153 and 0206100314 are the correct serials shown below.
Ignore the first 2 digits (‘48’) which is the factory code. Start with the 3rd digit and use the next 3 which are the manufacturer date, in the case above its 0907 or July 2019 – 2010. The next6 7 digits repr5esend the manufacturer code, ignore them. The next 5 digits are to be added to the 3-digit date for the serial number (90700430). Ignore the last digit.
Below are three formats you may see for the serial number based on products manufactured by Beko and Bloomberg.
