When requested in writing by Smart Power, defective products must be returned promptly to Smart Power. Smart Power’s sole liability shall be limited to the repair or replacement of the product, including parts and labor, at Smart Power’s option, of the parts that do not conform to this warranty. A Returned Material Authorization (RMA) is required for all products and parts and may be requested by phone, fax, email, or mail. Failure to make timely delivery to the Seller of the product claimed to be defective shall void any warranty. Unless previous written agreements have been made between the buyer and the Seller, the buyer shall be responsible for all freight and shipping charges. The connection with the delivery of the product claimed to be defective to Seller at its manufacturing facility, and the delivery of repaired or replacement product or parts to the buyer.
A product claimed to be defective must be shipped by end-user freight prepaid. Returned or replaced product and/or parts will be shipped Buyer freight collect. If the product is repaired under warranty, the associated freight charges will be reimbursed to the buyer.
Smart Power will pay parts costs and reasonable labor expenses up to the maximum time of four (4) hours @ $90/hour associated with the generator’s removal, repair, and installation into the customer’s equipment. For the first two (2) years of coverage, Smart Power will pay travel time up to two and one-half (2.5) hours @ $90/hour and mileage cost up to one hundred (100) miles @ 0.45/mile. If such work is done by a Smart Power System’s distributor or other service representative designated by Smart Power.
If Smart Power ultimately determines that no warranty coverage is available for a product claimed to be defective, whether the determination is based on the warranty being voided, the product failure being due to a cause not covered by the warranty. The failure to make a timely and proper warranty claim, or otherwise, the buyer shall have the option of either:
