How to Test & Tag Appliances


When it comes to testing and tagging appliances, it is going to be something that must be done on a regular basis.  This is because it will allow you to know whether or not the appliance being tested is operating as it should, or if there is something wrong with it that will need to be replaced.  When it comes to electrical appliances, there are many different circumstances where you will not notice that there is a problem with the appliance. This is going to be exactly what testing and tagging will allow you to discover.  


When you test and tag appliances, you will be ensuring that they are in optimal working condition and not pose any type of potential safety threat to those who are using them.  So, if you have any type of electrical appliance in your household, you are going to want to get them all tested and tagged every 12-24 months.  

Here is how to test and tag your appliances.

Testing and Tagging, Step 1

The first part to testing and tagging an appliance is going to be giving it a very thorough visual inspection.  This inspection should be for anything that looks wrong with the appliance.  This can include things such as:


Physical damage
Frayed cords
Broken knobs or gauges
Missing sections or pieces

The visual inspection is going to help you determine what type of shape the appliance is in and whether or not any repairs are going to be required in that sense.  Once you have successfully completed your visual inspection of the appliance, it is now going to be time to move to the next step of testing and tagging, that step being that you will need to administer an electrical test.

Testing and Tagging Step 2

Once the visual inspection has been completed, you will need to test the appliance’s electrical system to make sure that it is operating as it Is supposed to.  In order to complete this step, you are going to need to use a portable appliance tester. This is going to allow you to test whether or not the appliance is in excellent working condition or if there is some type of problem with the electrical system, which will then result in either having repairs made to the appliance, or even replacing he appliance altogether.  Once this electrical testing has been completed, it is then time to move on to the final step of the testing and tagging process, step 3.

Testing and Tagging Step 3

Once all of the visual and electrical testing has been successfully completed, it is going to be time to tag the appliance, confirming that it has in fact been tested and the results of that test.  For this, you are going to place a tag on the appliance to not only confirm that it was tested, but to also show who it was that tested it, what the date was when it was tested, and even when what the date of the next test is going to be.
