Consumer Product Warranty (Warranty against Defects)

Warranty terms and conditions

1.1 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. The benefits provided in this Standard Warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies you may have under law.

1.2 Subject to the above, as part of your Standard Warranty Canohm agrees to repair or replace at Canohm’s cost the goods (which includes a supplied Sangean accessory) purchased by you in Australia or New Zealand from a Sangean Authorised Dealer when the good does not perform in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications during the Warranty Term specified below, commencing from the date of purchase.

1.3 Goods returned for repair may be modified or repaired with refurbished parts of the same type.  Replacement of the good or a part does not extend or restart the Warranty Term.

1.4 In the case of a good presented for repair which is capable of retaining user-generated data 
(e.g. internal memory), you are advised that the repair process of the good may result in loss of that data.

1.5 The good will be at the owner’s risk whilst in transit to and from the Canohm Authorised Service Centre, unless transported by Canohm or its Authorised representatives.

liable for any damage caused to the good whilst in transit.
