Warranty Policy

Limited Warranty

District MFG provides a 30-Day Return Window (see Returns & Refund Policy) and the following limited warranty. This limited warranty extends only to the original purchaser.

Please note that any warranty services or questions must be accompanied by the order number from the transaction through which the warranted product was purchased. The order number serves as your warranty number and must be retained. District MFG will offer no warranty service without this number.

District MFG warrants this product and its parts against defects in materials or workmanship for one year from the original ship date. During this period, District MFG will repair or replace defective parts without charge to you.

Shipping fees incurred from returns for under-warranty service in the first 30-days will be paid by District MFG. All shipping fees both to and from District MFG following this 30-day period must be paid by the customer. All returns, both during and following the 30-day period, must be affected via the Procedures for Obtaining Warranty Service described below.

All original parts (parts installed by District MFG at the original system build) replaced by District MFG become the property of District MFG. Any after-market additions or modifications will not be warranted. The product owner is responsible for the payment, at current rates, for any service or repair outside the scope of this limited warranty.
