7.3 All returned faulty goods are tested by the manufacturer, and if the item is not faulty the product value will be refunded minus the cost of the testing process.

In most cases the Manufacturers offer a service/breakdown engineer service who will visit your property to repair or replace the faulty item. If the fault is not causing any damage, please do not remove the installed item as this could void your guarantee. We find that it is quicker if you contact the manufacturer directly, to arrange a call from an engineer in the case of a product developing a fault. Contacting the manufacturer direct is optional and you may of course contact us to resolve any problem should you wish.
