RioVation® warrants its products to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of two(2) years from the date of shipment to the purchaser when properly registered with RioVation®. The sole remedy under this warranty is as follows. RioVation® shall fulfill this warranty by replacing or exchanging any component part, F.O.B. factory, that in RioVation’s judgment shows evidence of defects provided said component part has been paid for and is returned transportation prepaid to RioVation®. The warranty must at that time also specify the nature of the defect, in writing, to RioVation®. The limited warranty does not make any provision for an informal dispute settlement arrangement.
The limited warranty does not cover RioVation® products or components that have been flooded by external means or that have been subjected to external damage or damage due to altered or improper wiring or overload protection.
Recommendations for special applications will be based on the best available expertise of RioVation®.
RioVation® reserves the right to revise, change, or modify the construction and design of the RioVation® products or any component part or parts, without incurring any obligation to make such changes or modifications in previously sold equipment. RioVation® also reserves the right, in making replacements of component parts under this limited warranty, to furnish a component part, which in its judgement, is equivalent to the part replaced.
This limited warranty does not become effective until the end user completes and submits the warranty sheet found in the manual.
