(1986 to current)
The manufacture date is represented by the numerical digit in the 3rd position of the serial number.
Blue indicates Year and Red is the week of manufacture
Please note! In some cases the year digit in the example above covers decades. So it could be for 2014-2004-1994. You will have to use your best judgement when decoding the age.
Fortunately most current tags also show the actual manufacture date printed as well.
Early model Frigidaire appliances did not seem to have any consistent coding that can determine the age, or not one that has been determined at this point. Some appliances appear to have the last 2 years of age stamped into the model number, however its not consistent.
You can be sure if the tag reads manufactured by General Motors, it will be prior to 1979.
