Registration of an Admiral appliance allows the manufacturer to contact the owner of the appliance in the case of a safety notice or recall and enables warranty service for new appliances. Registering appliances is also useful for proving ownership for insurance purposes.
In the event that there is a widespread issue with a particular appliance model, manufacturers often issue safety warnings or recalls. Registration of an appliance insures the quickest possible notification in the event that the appliance is recalled.
If an appliance is damaged in a natural disaster or stolen, proving ownership to an insurance company can be difficult. Registering an Admiral appliance provides proof of ownership separate from both receipts and the appliance itself that may be lost under such circumstances.
