Warranty issues outside the first 14 days – Warranty issues beyond initial receipt. Please contact us with details of the problem; often these can be easily resolved through communication with our technical support team. Telephone support is provided to assist with any technical issues to minimise the need for returns. All items returned during this time will be at the customer's expense.
If a warranty claim must be progressed, the return freight charges are the responsibility of the customer and these will be advised by a Darwin Cooling team member at the time of authorisation of the return. Please ensure that any warranty documents are retained at time of purchase. Certain manufacturers will not cover warranties without these documents being returned to them. A number of other suppliers require the warranty item/claim to be made directly to them rather than through Darwin Cooling. In these instances, you will be advised by our customer service team when a claim is made to return the item directly to the Australian distributor/manufacturer.
