Classification of Home Appliance



Home appliances are electrical/mechanical machines which accomplish some household functions, such as cooking or cleaning. Home appliances can be classified into:
1. Major appliances
2. Small appliances.
3. Consumer electronics.

Definition for Different Kinds of Home Appliance

Major appliances comprise major household appliances and may include: home kitchen appliances, dishwasher, and air conditioner, clothes dryer, drying cabinet, freezer, refrigerator, kitchen stove, water heater, washing machine, trash compactor, microwave ovens induction cookers and small pressure cookers. Major appliances were typically painted or enameled white, and many of them still are.

Small appliances are typically small household electrical entertainment appliances such as: TV sets, CD and DVD players, camcorders, still cameras, clocks, alarm clocks, video game consoles, HiFi and home cinema, telephones and answering machines. Some types of small home kitchen appliances were traditionally finished with or looked like wood or bakelite. This is now rather rare, but the name has stuck, even for goods that are unlikely ever to have been provided in a wooden case (e.g. camcorders). Another type of small appliances relate to heating and cooling such as: Fans and window mounted air conditioners, and heaters such as space heaters, ceramic heaters, gas heaters, kerosene heaters, and fan heaters. Microwave ovens contain complex electronic boards (the clock and controller) but aren't repaired very often. Some brands send whole boards for replacement, and some have them repaired by such technicians.

Consumer electronics (abbreviated CE) are electronic equipment intended for everyday use, most often in entertainment, communications and office productivity. Radio broadcasting in the early 20th century brought the first major consumer product, the broadcast receiver. Later products include personal computers, telephones, MP3 players, audio equipment, televisions, calculators, GPS automotive electronics, digital cameras and players and recorders using video media such as DVDs, VCRs or camcorders.

Home Appliance and Maintenance

This division is also noticeable in the maintenance and repair of these kinds of home appliances products. Small goods usually require high technical knowledge and skills (which get more complex with time, such as going from a soldering iron to a hot-air soldering station), while major goods may need more practical skills and "brute force" to manipulate the devices and heavy tools required to repair them.
