Warranty Disclaimer

Warranty

Full  warranty  terms and conditions are in the product’s Owner’s Manual (“the  warranty”), which you must comply with for a warranty claim to be honoured by Dux.

Our  goods  come  with  guarantees  that  cannot  be  excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a   major   failure  and  for  compensation  for  any  other  reasonably foreseeable  loss  or  damage.  You  are also entitled to have the goods repaired  or  replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

The benefits provided to you by the warranty are in addition to the guarantees and other rights and remedies available to you under the Australian Consumer Law.

Warranty Replacement (Outside Metropolitan Areas)

Where the Dux water heater is located outside the metropolitan area of a capital city and is more than 100km from a Dux office or Dux agent, the Owner will be responsible under the warranty for paying the costs of transporting the water heater and or any component in the water heater to and from an approved Dux agent or Dux office (including any insurance associated with that transport), or paying the travelling time of an approved Dux agent to and from the owners premises, unless otherwise agreed by Dux.

The Australian Consumer Law (“ACL”)

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. If Dux fails to meet a guarantee under the ACL, your remedy for such failure may be limited to any one or more of the following:

  • replacement of the water heater;
  • repair of the water heater;
  • refunding the cost of the water heater;
  • payment of the reasonable costs of having the water heater repaired;
  • payment in respect of the reduced value of the water heater.

Commencement of Warranty

The warranty period commences from the date of installation of the water heater. Where proof of the date of installation is not available, the warranty period commences on the date of manufacture of the water heater. This is shown on the compliance plate on the outside of the water heater. The replacement of the water heater, or a component of it, under this warranty does not change the warranty commencement date. The original commencement date continues to apply.

Warranty Conditions

The warranty only applies to the water heater itself and the components supplied with the water heater by Dux. The warranty does not cover components supplied by others, including the installer. The tank failure warranty does not apply if the water heater has been connected to a water supply where the Total Dissolved Solids content is greater than 2500 mg/L. These warranties do not apply to defects that are a result of, without limitation, the following:

  • failure to install the water heater in accordance with the installation instructions or statutory requirements;
  • faulty plumbing or water supply including excessive pressure;
  • faulty power supply;
  • use of the water heater in a manner contrary to this manual or other instructions provided by Dux;
  • alterations or repair of the water heater other than by an accredited and licensed service agent or technician;
  • accidental damage or abuse.

If the water heater is installed in a position that does not comply with the installation instructions or statutory requirements, then this warranty does not cover major dismantling or removal of cupboards, doors, walls or special equipment and/or excessive labour, at the determination of Dux, to make the water heater accessible for repair or replacement.

Consequential Losses

Claims for damage to furniture, carpets, walls, foundations or any other consequential loss either directly or indirectly due to defects of any kind in the water heater will only be met by Dux where the damage could be considered reasonably foreseeable and the water heater was installed in accordance with the installation instructions and all relevant statutory requirements.

How to Make a Warranty Claim

Warranty claims can be made at the point of sale or by posting or faxing a  warranty  claim  to  the  manufacturer (contact details listed below) within one (1) month of the appearance of a defect. Warranty claims must include  the  following details: date of purchase, location of purchase, proof  of  purchase,  date of installation, contact details, and product serial number.
