NORMAL WARRANTY [90 DAYS]
- Our warranty is simple. 90 days on all electronic repairs. If it stops
playing during that 90 days, return the unit (call or
email me first) and it will be repaired at no cost, and return shipped
at no cost. If the failure is unrelated to any work we have performed, we
will repair the radio and charges for parts and shipping will be at
our discretion. We can offer this comprehensive warranty because of
our Minimum repair standards.
Of course if you used the radio for a substitute bowling ball
I probably would not agree that the warranty applied.
ONE YEAR WARRANTY [RESTORATION WARRANTY] - This warranty applies to all
Restorations have a one year warranty against any and all failures that
occur in the normal course of radio operation. We will repair at no charge a Radio that is under a
warranty and has been restored by us. Shipping both ways will be paid by us.
See Warranty Returns.
WARRANTY This warranty applies to all
Super or "enhanced" restorations.
Super restorations have a three year warranty against any and
all failures that occur in the normal course of radio operation. We
will repair at no charge (does include return shipping) a Radio
that is under a three year warranty and has been restored by us. See
Tube life varies greatly with how a radio is used. When we test
your tubes, we only leave tubes in place if they test "good" or
"better". When we replace tubes, we try to use NOS or "New Old Stock"
meaning they have not been put in service, but may been manufactured
many years ago. Otherwise, we acquire used tubes that test very high
in tube testers. The reality is there are no tests that we or anybody
else can run that will predict with absolute certainty that a tube
will last a specific number of hours.
DID YOU KNOW?
That a warranty on a 60 year old radio that only
covers the repair work done - is essentially useless. The warranty to
be of value must have language such as : "six month warranty against any and all failures that
occur in the normal course of radio operation." Why, because after
a radio has been repaired and restored to working order, the radio
puts even more stress on other 50-70 year old parts possibly causing
other failures. See our write up on Just
