System/Unit to be Removed and Replaced with Another System/Unit of the Same Model
1. Customer is dissatisfied with the product.

3. After the dealer obtains the Distributor Service Manager’s approval, the dealer replaces the unit/system with a similar one and removes the existing unit/system OR Dealer refunds customer the price of the unit as stated on the 100% Satisfaction Guarantee form (This will be a two-part form – one copy given to the customer during installation and one copy retained by the dealer) and removes the existing unit/system, as the case might be. It is the distributor’s responsibility to qualify or
dispute the removal of the existing unit/system.
Distributor Sales Manager should engage the TSM before granting approval to the dealer to proceed.

8. Factory processes the claim per standard warranty guidelines and credits the distributor the price at which the unit/system was sold to the distributor.
9. The distributor then credits the dealer the price the dealer paid the distributor for the existing unit/system. When they refund or credit the dealer is at the distributor’s discretion.
* If the unit/system is to be removed and replaced by an upgraded unit/system – after obtaining Distributor Service Manager’s approval – the dealer removes the existing unit/system and installs the upgraded/higher-end unit the customer chooses.
