American Hakko Products, Inc. warrants that all Hakko brand products will be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of purchase or one (1) year for the Hakko model FR-1418, provided that no warranty shall apply to products that have been damaged, altered, abused, improperly installed and/or maintained, repaired after purchase, or have had their identification markings removed or altered in any way. A longer warranty period applies to the electronic portion of the power supply unit, heating elements, and blower motors on certain models as specified below. No warranty shall apply to consumables (such as tips, nozzle, blades, fuses, metal parts, filters and the like). All warranties are not transferable.
American Hakko’s warranty obligation shall be limited to repairing or replacing any product determined to be defective. Replacements may include new or factory refurbished products. American Hakko reserves the right to inspect any product to determine whether or not such product has failed due to a defect in material or workmanship and all warranty claims must also comply with the PROCEDURES FOR WARRANTY CLAIMS set forth below. Onsite labor costs are specifically excluded under this warranty.
REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT AS PROVIDED UNDER THIS WARRANTY SHALL BE THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY CLAIMANT. AMERICAN HAKKO SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR INDIRECT DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE ANY PRODUCT. EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE IS LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THE WARRANTY PROVIDED HEREIN. AMERICAN HAKKO’S LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIM ARISING FROM THIS WARRANTY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE) SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT. No American Hakko dealer, agent or employee is authorized to make any modification or extension to this warranty.
Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of consequential or incidental damages, or allow limitations on how long an implied warrant lasts, the above limitations may not apply in each case. This warranty gives specific legal rights, and claimants may have other rights which vary from state to state.
The Hakko models listed below are subject to an extended warranty on the electronic portion of the power supply unit, heating elements, and blower motors as described below:
