Consumers can buy a Frigidaire extended warranty to prolong the duration of appliance parts and repair coverage beyond the one-year manufacturer's warranty. Frigidaire offers extended warranties through its official website.
There is some debate about whether extended warranties are worthwhile. A 2012 article from U.S. News and World Report suggests they do not justify the added cost. Because appliances rapidly depreciate in value, it may be more cost-effective to simply purchase a new appliance should one become inoperable past the initial manufacturer's warranty. The likelihood of needing a repair or replacement on an appliance made by a brand-name manufacturer is also low.
