Warranty Policy

WE WILL NOT CONSIDER ANY WARRANTY CLAIMS UNLESS THE ACCOUNT IS CURRENT AND IN GOOD STANDING.  REMANUFACTURED COMPRESSORS: We warrant our remanufactured or exchange compressors to be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use for 6 months to 1 year (*)  from date of invoice and said warranty shall be limited to furnishing a replacement, F.O.B. our warehouse, for the compressor which upon our examination discloses to our satisfaction to be defective. Warranty shall not be extended to any compressor that has been subjected to liquid slugging, improper voltage, poor system engineering, use of alcohol, or installation of our compressors into contaminated systems (see our fault diagnosis page).  Failure to install suction line dryer ahead of all Hermetic and Semi-Hermetic compressors that have been replaced because of burnouts will void this warranty.  We assume no liability for system damage or product loss due to failure of one of our replacement compressors, or labour expense involved in the removal, installation or failure of compressor or parts under this warranty.  Warranty applies only to compressors sold in South Africa.  We warranty a compressor for 6 months or 1 year when paid for within our credit terms. All warranty parts returned for credit are subject to the manufacturers’ approval.  Material return forms must be completed by the customer before the goods are returned to the factory by us.  Please contact our parts manager before return of any defective or warranty parts.  NOTE: Credit due for exchange sales is subject to deduction for missing parts.
