Genuine OEM Parts

Why Genuine OEM Parts Matter

Marmon Link 6/24/2019

When fountain dispensers stop dispensing, toasters stop heating, or coolers are no longer cooling, it's time for repair. But not all replacement parts are equal. Repairing Marmon beverage and foodservice equipment with genuine parts from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) can make a big difference in the efficiency and longevity of your equipment. Here’s why.

Lower Cost Over Time

While generic parts may cost less initially, over time they can cost you more – in more frequent replacement, service calls, and a greater drain on your utilities. Further, equipment warranties typically require the use of genuine OEM parts or the warranty may become void.

Better Equipment Performance

The Marmon brands designed and tested their equipment with specific parts intended for a specific purpose. There's no guarantee that the equipment will function exactly the same using a generic, untested part. Food safety, equipment lifespan, and proper functioning are all compromised with generic parts.

Prevention of Safety Hazards

Whether it's moisture, heat, or cold, the parts used in Marmon brand equipment have been tested for the elements. Using unapproved generic parts for repairs could cause safety hazards and risk the safety of your employees and customers.

We Know Genuine OEM

Marmon beverage and foodservice manufacturers may change parts specifications over time. Because we at Marmon Link work so closely with these Marmon brands, our Customer Service and Technical Support teams are up-to-date on these spec changes so you know you are using only the most recent approved part.
