Home appliances are electrical/mechanical machines which accomplish some household functions, such as cooling/heating, cooking or cleaning. Home appliances can be classified into: major appliances, or white goods, small appliances, consumer electronics, or brown goods in regions with UK influence. This division is also noticeable in the maintenance and repair of these kinds of products. Brown 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 white goods may need more practical skills and “brute force” to manipulate the devices and heavy tools required to repair them. Given a broad usage, the domestic application attached to “home appliance” is tied to the definition of appliance as “an instrument or device designed for a particular use or function”. More specifically, Collins dictionary defines “home appliance” as: “devices or machines, usually electrical, that are in your home and which you use to do jobs such as cleaning or cooking.” The broad usage, afforded to the definition allows for nearly any device intended for domestic use to be a home appliance, including consumer electronics as well as stoves, refrigerators, toasters and air conditioners to light bulbs and water well pumps.
