Here’s what you can expect from your vacuum cleaner limited warranty:
- Term length: Most manufacturers offer a one-year or two-year limited warranty term. For high-end products, you might see a three-year warranty. However, most warranty terms are about 12 months.
- Coverage: Almost all limited warranties only cover manufacturing defects. If there is a problem with your product that isn’t a result of a manufacturing defect, the limited warranty won’t cover it.
- Price: Limited warranties are included with the product. You should never have to pay for limited warranty coverage.
- Repairs: Depending on the manufacturer, you may be able to take your vacuum to a repair shop. Other manufacturers may require you to mail the product to a specialized store. Most companies should cover the shipping costs, but it’s not guaranteed.
Although the limited warranty is essential, you should never rely on it for full coverage. Since it lasts just 12 months, the limited warranty leaves your vacuum unprotected for years of use. Instead, you should consider purchasing an extended warranty to guarantee your vacuum cleaner from damage.
