As an authorized distributor, Bell’s warranty responsibility is limited to the responsibility of the original equipment manufacturer.
The specific terms of a product warranty are only those provided by the written warranty accompanying the particular product. Unless specified in the terms of an individual sale, Bell has no greater product warranty beyond that of the manufacturer. With few exceptions, the warranty period for new instruments is one year and covers parts and labor.
In general, the manufacturer’s responsibility shall be, at their option, to either repair or replace any product component that fails during the warranty period due to a defect in workmanship and/or material.
The warranty is contingent upon the proper use of the product and does not cover products which have been modified without the manufacturer’s approval, or which have been subjected to unusual physical or electrical stress, or which have had original identification marks removed or altered.
Lamps, bulbs, ink cartridges, and other expended items are not covered by warranty.
