What if my  appliance cannot be fixed?

If our approved service technician is not able to repair your product, or we decide that it is uneconomical for us to repair your product, we will arrange a replacement of your product with a new product of the same or similar make and technical specification.

If your product needs to be replaced but we cannot reasonably arrange a replacement product, we will give you vouchers for the full retail price (from a retailer chosen by us) of a replacement product of the same or similar make and technical specification.

If we arrange to replace your product, we will pay the supplier’s delivery charge.

If your product is not repaired away from your home but is replaced, you will be responsible for disposing of it at your own cost. In all cases you will be responsible for installing the replacement product and paying any related costs.

If your product is replaced (or you receive a settlement for a replacement) under this maintenance & support plan, your plan will end immediately and no fee will be refunded.

Please refer to the Terms & Conditions for full details here.

Some plans also require you to pay a call-out fee for onsite visits. If this applies to the plan you have selected, the amount of the call-out fee will be set out in your welcome letter.
