Back to Base Warranty Request
Please use the below form to report that your machine is not operating properly. This will be dealt with under the terms and conditions of the warranty you received when you purchased the goods.
The item in which you are reporting as faulty is only covered by a back to base warranty.
What does this mean?
Some manufacturers only provide a back to base warranty. The duration of this warranty is dependent on the item and will be outlined in your original order. If you do find a fault with your appliance that is under warranty you should first consult the user manual. If the fault is still there then you will need to send the unit for testing and repair.
There are many things that are not covered by warranty and where this is the case, you must pay for the service call.
Common exceptions may include the following:
- Site issues (eg. room temperatures/ventilation/positioning)
- Failure to clean or maintain the product in accordance with instructions
- Incorrect, poor or faulty installation/re-assembly
- Poor or faulty services (eg. utilities)
- Physical damage
- Damage/blockages caused by foreign objects
- Faults caused by poor quality products/detergents etc.
- Failure to comply with the instructions supplied with the product
Many "faults" are not actually a fault of the product but due to the use or installation of the machine. Statistics show that in some cases over 90% of reported or suspected faults are down to use, installation or misunderstanding on the part of the user. Before arranging the service call we strongly suggest you carry out checks to ensure the fault is with the product itself and covered by the warranty.
