Maintenance and Repairs

Repair Services
In the event that a unit is damaged or otherwise not performing as specified, repair and maintenance service is available. Warranty repair will be performed within one year from the date of purchase at no charge. Beyond one year, charges for time, material, and handling will be incurred. Warranty repair includes defects in material and workmanship only. Accidental damage or abuse repairs will always incur time, material, and handling charges. Shipping charges to our factory are the responsibility of the customer. Return shipping charges are also the responsibility of the customer (except for "in warranty" repairs for customers located within the USA). ** The Applied Instruments team will still be in place working on repairs but will be transitioning to Tescom processes at the start of 2020 **
