The warranty on your Modern Fan Company product purchased in Australia is provided by the authorised product distributor in the state or territory where the product was purchased.
To obtain the best performance from a ceiling fan, it is crucial that the correct size of fan is properly installed in the optimum location. We cannot arrange for, or cover the cost of, an in-home visit by service personnel in relation to the airflow or other performance of your product except in cases where, following over the telephone trouble-shooting, the authorised product distributor in the state or territory where the product was purchased has determined that such issues may be a direct result of a manufacturing defect (material or workmanship). Ceiling fans that do not perform as expected or desired and which are not faulty will not be replaced or exchanged under warranty.
All ceiling fans and associated products should be installed by a licensed electrician. Installing electricians who are experiencing problems with installation or who cannot get the product to operate correctly once installed should read the ‘Trouble-Shooting Section’ of the installation guide or contact the authorised product distributor in the state or territory where the product was purchased.
The benefits provided to you by this warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies available to you under the law.
The warranty on your Modern Fan Company product purchased in Australia begins from the day of purchase.
The ceiling fan itself, excluding accessories such as the Remote Control Transmitter and Receiver, Accessory Light Kit & Wall Control, is covered by a three (3) year on-site warranty. During this period, the authorised product distributor in the state or territory where the product was purchased will, at its discretion, repair or replace products considered to be defective due to a manufacturing defect (material or workmanship).
Remote Control Receiver and Transmitters (Handsets), Accessory Light Kits (integrated or externally mounted) and Wall Controls are covered by a one (1) year on-site warranty under the same conditions as described for fans. No further warranty is offered on these items after the 1 year period.
Repaired or Replaced Products
Any replaced or repaired product is covered only by the balance of the warranty remaining on the original article.
Transfer of Warranty
If the premises where the ceiling fan or remote control is installed changes hands, the balance of the warranty passes to the new owner, provided that the original bill of sale for the product is retained by the new owner.
