Homeowners are often curious of the age of their home appliances.We have provided this service to try to help them to date their major appliances (fridge, stove, dishwasher, washer, dryer, etc.) accurately from the code usually contained within their serial number.It is located in the sky near the star Zeta Tauri (ζ Tauri).The core of the exploding star formed a pulsar, called the Crab Pulsar (or PSR B0531 21).
The remainder of the serial is just a sequential number.The second digit represents the month of manufacture, and the third digit represents the year; use the decoder chart on the right to find the manufacture date. (The first digit is an individual factory code, and the fourth through ninth digits are the sequential identifying number for each individual product.) For example, a serial number of GJCxxxxxx would indicate that the product was manufactured at factory “G” in 10/12, or October 2012. All other trademarks are the property of their respective owners. Unfortunately only modern appliances made after the 1970's or 1980's are possible to date this way (and sometimes not even then).This service will NOT date antique models nor even those built in the 1950's or 1960's.
