kind of Warranty comes with White's detectors? |
White's warranties standard models from all defects in
materials and workmanship for two years transferable parts and labor. White's
two year parts and labor warranty often offers more warranty coverage than "limited
lifetime" or extended years of coverage. One must read the fine print carefully
when comparing warranties. Labor and high wear parts are the most likely areas
of cost in repair service.
The Full White's Warranty
is as follows:
If within two years (24 months) from the original
date of purchase, your White's detector fails due to defects in either material
or workmanship, White's will repair or replace at its option, all necessary parts
without charge for parts or labor.
Simply return the complete detector to the
Dealer where you purchased it, or to your nearest Authorized Service Center. The
unit must be accompanied by a detailed explanation of the symptoms of the failure.
You must provide proof of date-of-purchase before the unit is serviced.

or the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages. Therefore, the above
limitations may not apply to you. In addition, the stated warranty gives you specific
