Refrigerator manufacturers often sell unique parts and accessories at retailers or affiliated stores and on their official websites. Most makers provide a customer service hotline for consumers to place an order online. If the parts are not available locally, the manufacturer can order the parts overseas.
Discontinued refrigerator parts can be found on appliance part retailers such as PartsTap.com and PartStore.com. Parts can be searched according to model, type and part number. Some refrigerators, such as propane gas refrigerators, require entirely different parts that may only be bought from the unit's manufacturer. Unique, a maker of off-grid appliances, has a list of available part guides according to the model name, type and year of production.
