Warranty Policy for “90-Day Limited Parts Warranty”:
This indicates that the warranty provided does not extend to every possible situation. There are situations that are excluded; therefore the warranty is “limited” rather than “unlimited”.
Every effort is made to ensure that any purchased vending equipment, new, refurbished or clean and working, has been thoroughly checked before leaving the facility. By performing thorough testing and quality control checks on the machines, A&M Equipment Sales has eliminated many possible warranty issues from the start.
A&M Equipment Sales provides a large, in-house parts and service department staffed with personnel who are experienced and can help facilitate most repairs. All “refurbished” and “clean & working” vending equipment are provided with a 90 day limited parts warranty. This includes parts such as changers, validators, sensors, control boards, refrigeration units, motors, digital display unit, etc.
All items that fail must be replaced during our 90 day limited parts warranty period. The 90 day limited parts warranty starts when the vending equipment is picked up from our facility (if local), when delivered to the customer (if by company truck) or three days after the vending equipment has been shipped from our facility. Whichever comes first. Parts for new vending equipment are covered under the manufacturers parts warranty. The warranty period for new vending equipment is dependent on the manufacturer. Please check with your sales representative for more information.
A&M recommends that the customer put their vending equipment into service as soon as possible upon delivery so that the equipment can be checked for possible issues caused by delivery. The 90 day limited parts warranty is not extended to customers who fail to place their vending equipment in service within a timely manor.
