Kenton products are very thoroughly tested prior to despatch thus we achieve an almost zero failure rate. In the extremely unlikely event of a problem, Kenton equipment is covered by a "back to base" warranty for a period of one year from date of purchase. "Back to base" means that return of the product to Kenton is your responsibility and at your cost. We do not organise collection. On receipt, we will examine the goods, and if found to be faulty will repair or replace at our discretion and return to you at our cost. If no fault is found, we will discuss the problem with you, but return to you will be chargeable.
If you suspect that one of our products is faulty, you should first contact our technical department who will try to help you find what the problem is. This can usually be isolated to another piece of equipment, cables, or simply a misunderstanding of the equipment or connections. You need to supply a description of the problem as well as the unit serial number.
If our technical department decides that the equipment needs to be returned, you will need to get a returns authorisation number from them. You should send the goods well protected to minimise the risk of damage in transit and you should use a service which will collect a signature on delivery to us. For more expensive items it may be worthwhile considering insuring the goods in transit also.
