Warranty Exclusions and Limitations

  • This warranty does not include replacement of accessories and consumable items, cleaning, normal wear and tear, damage caused by accident, neglect, misuse, abuse, improper installation or operation, acts of nature (including but not limited to lightning, flood, earthquake and fire), operation of product outside the manufacturer specifications, foreign matter entering the product such as liquid, moisture, insect infestation or dirt or any damage caused from service, maintenance, modification or tampering by anyone other than a Brother Technical Support Centre, or with the use of supplies, consumable items, or add on products that are non-genuine Brother products.

Repairs

Products presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished products of the same type, rather than being replaced. Replacement or repairing of the product or part thereof does not extend or restart the Warranty Term. If a product presented for repair is capable of retaining user-generated data, you are advised that the repair of the product may result in loss of this data.

Reimbursements

Brother, its Technical Support Centres or authorised on site technicians, may seek reimbursement from you of any reasonable costs incurred by them if the products are found to be in good working order, the problem is not a consequence of a defect or manufacturing fault or where any of the warranty exclusions and limitations apply. Reasonable costs may include travel costs and parts and/or labour costs for on-site service, the costs of packaging, insurance and transportation for return-to-base service and parts and labour.
