Limited Warranty Policy

The Carlyle Johnson Machine Company, LLC warrants that it will repair or replace (whichever it deems advisable) any product manufactured and sold by it that proves to be defective in material or workmanship within a period of one year from the date of the original purchase for consumer, commercial or industrial use.

This warranty extends only to the initial purchaser and is not transferable without prior written consent from Carlyle Johnson.

A purchase receipt or other proof of original purchase will be required before warranty service is rendered. It is also necessary to include a brief outline of why the product is being returned. If the items are found defective while under warranty, repair or replacement will be made without charge. If the product is found not to be defective, you will be notified for a decision on disposition.

This warranty covers normal use and does not cover damage which occurs in shipment, or damage or defect which is the result of alteration, accident, neglect or improper installation, operation or maintenance.

With respect to the customer's use of a product, the foregoing warranty is in lieu of and excludes all other warranties, whether express or implied by operation laws or otherwise, including, but not limited to, any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular use or application.

The obligation of The Carlyle Johnson Machine Company is limited to the repair or replacement of the defective product. In no event shall Carlyle Johnson be held responsible for consequential, indirect or incidental damages of any kind incurred by reason of the manufacture, sale or use of any defective product. Carlyle Johnson will not authorize any person other than the president of the company to give any other warranty or assume any other liability on it's behalf.

Order Cancellation Term and Conditions

The order cancellation policy gives our customers a one-week grace period in which to cancel any order placed. During this period, and only during this period, a customer may cancel their order without being charged.

Should the customer decide to cancel the order any time thereafter, a charge shall be assessed for 25% of the original quoted, acknowledged or invoiced price.

All shipments leaving Carlyle Johnson are packaged according to standard commercial packaging practice. Carlyle Johnson is not responsible for material damaged in transit. Responsibility for damaged shipment lies with the common carrier. The responsibility for filing any claim with the common carrier is that of whichever party contracted with the carrier, and is determined by the terms of the sales order.

Returned Goods Policy

Before returning goods for repair or any other purpose, the customer must obtain a Returned Goods Authorization (RGA) number. To obtain an RGA number, contact the Carlyle Johnson Sales Department. No action will be taken on any returns until an RGA number is assigned. All return shipments must be prepaid. If a return is later determined to be under warranty, any prepaid shipping charges will be credited.
