Operator's manuals are valuable. They tell how to safely use an appliance or tool, where to get it repaired, and often how to make adjustments or repairs yourself. They also enhance the value of an item if you eventually decide to sell it. But these manuals tend to disappear, in the shop or in the bottoms of drawers. Place them in a folder and tuck the folder in the home files. In the workshop, manuals can be hung on a nail near the tool they pertain to.
When you buy a new product, create a file folder for the warranty information and manual. If you dispose of the box it came in, be sure to cut off the UPC code and put that in the file folder as well. If something goes wrong with the product you will know exactly where the warranty information is.
I was lucky when I moved in here that the previous owners saved all the manuals in a bag in a cupboard! The hot water tank furnace electric range etc! I know there are bread machine manuals online because I had to find one for a friend of mine - so with that, there's bound to be others :) (08/28/2006)
