Appliance Age Lookup

Use the form below to find the age of your appliance. Ensure the data entered is accurate as a single mistaken digit can produce different results. Entering the full model number can provide increased accuracy when decoding the serial number. Be aware this tool is not meant for extremely dated appliances and is generally accurate from 1990 onwards. Image recognition is available for select brands with more on the way. If the brand is supported, you can upload a picture of the serial and model to have the fields populated for you.

How To Find The Age Of A CRYSTALTIPS Appliance
CRYSTALTIPS serial numbers can be decoded using the following steps:

Step 1: Locate the Serial Number

Look for the serial number on the product label, which is usually located on the back or bottom of the appliance.
The location of the serial number may vary depending on the type of appliance you are working with. Some common places to look for the serial number include:
  • On the back or side of a refrigerator
  • On the rim or base of a dishwasher
  • On the door jamb or control panel of a washing machine or dryer
  • On the control panel of an oven or range

Step 2: Decode the Serial Number

CRYSTALTIPS serial numbers are either 9 or 10 digits. If 9 digits, the character in the 2nd position is the date code. If 10 digits, the 3rd character is the date code. Knowing the length of the serial number is crucial. For example, VE7123456 decodes to 1995 but adding one additional digit like VE71234568 would decode to 2017.

Once you have determined the length of the serial number and the appropriate date code, the two digits immediately following the date code represents the week of the year it was manufactured.

For HVAC, the first four characters should be numeric. The first two are the year, and the 2nd and 3rd the month of manufacture. For example 1108B30987 decodes to 2011.

Appliance Age Finder
Our website decodes and searches appliance serial numbers and runs an algorithm against our own internal data and data on the general internet to determine the most likely manufacture date, providing a valuable resource for those who need to know the age of their appliances.
It works by first decoding the serial number then searching with that data to identify the manufacturer and the model of the appliance. This information is then given to our algorithms to find additional information about the appliance, including the date it was manufactured.
We use various algorithms and machine learning techniques to analyze the results and determine the most likely manufacture date for the appliance.
Why Does Appliance Age Matter?
A homeowner would want to find the age of their appliances for several reasons, such as
  • Lifespan: Knowing the age of the appliance can help a homeowner determine how much longer the appliance is likely to last, and whether it may need to be replaced soon.
  • Warranty: The manufacturer's warranty for appliances typically covers them for a certain period of time after the purchase date. Knowing the age of the appliance can help a homeowner determine if it is still covered under warranty.
  • Maintenance: Regular maintenance can help extend the life of an appliance. Knowing the age of the appliance can help a homeowner schedule necessary maintenance and repairs.
  • Value: The age of an appliance can affect its value if a homeowner is selling their home or if they are insuring it.
Integration
We provide an API that decodes appliance serial numbers and responds with the age of the appliance. It is a software interface that allows other applications to access information about appliances based on their serial numbers. Our API enables developers to integrate appliance information into their own applications, making it possible to retrieve details such as the manufacturer, model number, production date, and other relevant details.
Our API uses algorithms and databases to decode the serial numbers and provide accurate and up-to-date information to users. With a RESTful design and secure authentication, our API makes it easy for developers to integrate appliance information into their own applications, and for end-users to access the information they need.
