Warranty, Returns, and Cancellation  Policy

 TWO (2) YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY

Warranty:

The warranty for cooling units covers defects for Two (2) year after date of shipment to original retail customer.  Warranty claims must be made through RVCOOL  with the warranty serial number sticker intact.   RVCOOL will replace or repair, at its option any defective cooling unit within the two (2) year warranty period, provided the defective cooling unit is shipped to RVCOOL freight prepaid and meets the terms described below. 

RVCOOL - RV Refrigeration is not responsible for damage due to accident, misuse, or repairs made by unauthorized personnel, or acts of God.


 Warranty conditions and limitations 
   We want to stand behind our product and make every effort to correct any problems you might encounter with your purchase. In order to provide our customer service, additional testing or troubleshooting steps may be required to diagnose cooling problems before a warranty claim can be processed. Remember that just because a unit quit working....this doesn't always mean the cooling unit failed,  and in most cases with a little troubleshooting we can help you find the problem and a quick, easy solution.  As described in the troubleshooting and testing pages a unit needs three things to work properly:  CORRECT heat input, LEVEL operation, GOOD ventilation.

Examples of conditions not warranted include but are not limited to the following:

·   Improper installation

If the installation instructions for your particular unit are not on our website it is your responsibility to contact RVCOOL  for advice or instructions before proceeding. Contact RVCOOL at sales@rvrefrigerator.net  for printed instructions not found on website. Failure to follow rvcool instructions may void warranty at the complete discretion of rvcool. Paper instructions are NOT shipped with the cooling unit and must be obtained here on the website or by email. If you have questions concerning the installation of a rebuilt cooling unit it is your responsibility to contact rvcool for advise or instructions before proceeding. 

Examples of installation problems that will lead to the warranty being voided: Not sealing the back of the unit with good aluminum foil tape as described in instructions. Not applying thermal mastic as described by instructions. Not replacing the fiberglass insulation around the boiler if the old insulation is saturated with yellow from a cooling unit leaking in this area.

 Improper Ventilation

Ventilation must be open with no obstructions preventing air flow through condenser fins to roof vent.

If not roof vent. then ventilation fans must be installed and operational

           

·   Improper operation: not covered

                             Running the cooling unit out of level.

                            Applying a heat source not within the original manufacturer's  specifications.

Returns and Cancellations:

 A lot of work goes into processing an order for a refrigeration unit and preparing it to be shipped. In the last few years I have seen an  increase in the number of people that change their mind and want to send a unit back for a refund after they receive it and in some cases after it has been installed....The amazing thing is the majority of these cases feel they are entitled to a 100% refund including shipping (which is not the case). This has forced us to develop and publish the following Cancellation/Returns Policy:

All sales are FINAL Any return authorized after the unit leaves RVCOOL’s facility is completely at the discretion of RVCOOL.  Should RVCOOL agree to authorize a return only a partial refund is available, the refund will be less all shipping charges both ways, and up to 25% restocking fee.

Any unit found defective within the first 30 days will be repaired / replaced at RVCOOL’s discretion, and in the first 30 days, RVCOOL will arrange shipping and cover shipping costs provided it falls under normal warranty described above.  Units damaged in shipping must be documented with the shipping company and RVCOOL made aware so return of the damaged unit can be arranged by RVCOOL. If the unit is found defective after 30 days, customer is responsible for shipping.
