Improper maintenance will cause periodical breakdown of the machines causing avoidable expenses. Some of the consumers are under the impression that warranty conditions attached to the machines will take care of the expenses in case of breakdowns. But they forget the fact that they can invoke the warranty conditions only for inherent manufacturing defects and not for defects caused by improper handling and maintenance of the machines.
