Spare parts and warranties

It seems that the way some of the importers of appliances get away with not having to supply spare parts is by offering a replacement warranty of say two or three years. After that you are expected to throw it away if it fails. Given that appliances often contain proprietary components means that they cannot be fixed.

This is another reason why the service industry is in decline and why there is increasing amounts of e-waste.
