THE HEALTH OF YOUR APPLIANCE
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The Appliance Health feature is a real-time visual indicator of your appliance’s health in 4-8 categories. This dashboard can provide you with peace of mind that your appliance is operating as intended in those categories.
In the event that there is an active error present, you will be alerted to the issue by a push notification, you will see the affected appliance health category highlighted, and there will be details on the error, along with steps to troubleshoot.
*** Please note that the Appliance Health feature is not a preventative maintenance tool, and will not be able to foresee an appliance issue (like component wear) before it occurs. In some cases, it will not be able to detect the root cause of the error and we will direct you to call our service team.
If all of your Appliance Health categories are green, this means that your appliance is in good health! Your appliance is operating as expected and there are no known errors present.
If an Appliance Health category is red, this means that there is an active error present in that category. Please see the red banner at the top of your Appliance Details page for details on the appliance error and a link to troubleshooting steps. If troubleshooting does not resolve the issue, please contact our service team.
