Universal Air Conditioner, Inc (UAC) products made in Asia that fail because of defects in material or workmanship, within a period of 1 year from the day of purchase from UAC, will be replaced to the original purchaser at no charge. All other products will be subject to that manufacturer's warranty. There are no other warranties expressed, implied, or intended other than the 1 year from day of purchase warranty.
This warranty is subject to the following conditions and exclusions:
1. Valid Proof of Purchase. Warranty requests are only accepted with valid proof of purchase from UAC.
2. Proper Installation. Proper installation in accordance with furnished instructions and/or acceptable industry installations methods, as stated in service manuals must be followed by installation personnel. Install the clutch on Compressors purchased without a clutch and set the clutch air gap per OEM specifications. Check clutch electrical circuit for proper voltage per OEM specifications. After compressor installation, turn the compressor shaft a minimum of 10 revolutions to remove excess lubricant from the compressor. Evacuate the entire A/C system for a minimum of 45 minutes. Recharge with the proper refrigerants: R134a or R12. When replacing scroll compressors, it is common that debris from the original compressor gets lodged in the condenser and causes the replacement compressor to experience a catastrophic failure. This can be identified by holes and large cracks in the body of the fitted replacement compressor. To avoid a warranty from being denied by UAC, the installer must flush the evaporator and replace the following: Compressor with clutch, Multi-pass, parallel flow condensers (Parallel Flow Condensers cannot be flushed), Drier or Accumulator, Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube, Seals, and O-rings. The work order submitted to UAC as part of the warranty request must indicate that all of these parts were replaced.
3. Exclusions. The following conditions automatically void the warranty obligations: abuse, improper use, shipping damage, damage from dropping, dead batteries, cosmetic damage, failure to service at recommended intervals and failure to follow printed instructions. Clogged or broken expansion valves and/or orifice tubes, malfunctioning fuses, relays, switches, and electrical components are excluded from warranty coverage. Compressor warranty is void unless the drier/accumulator, orifice tube and/or expansion valve is replaced upon installation and system is flushed using generally accepted methods. If the condenser is a parallel-flow type, it must be changed. The proper lubricant must be used. Units returned without lubricant and not properly capped are excluded from warranty coverage. UAC does not accept products for Stock Adjustment.
4. Service Tools and Equipment. Warrantied products will be repaired and returned to the customer. This includes vacuum pumps, leak detectors, manifold gauge sets and recovery, recycle and recharge equipment.
