Noritz Tankless Warranty
Noritz America Corporation LIMITED WARRANTY - TANKLESS WATER HEATERS
1. What is Covered by this Warranty During the applicable Warranty Period (specified below), Noritz America Corporation (“Noritz “) warrants to the original purchaser (“Buyer”) that the new Noritz gas water heater in the originally installed location (“Product”) is free from material defects in material or workmanship (the “Warranty”). There are different Warranty Periods for different components of the Product, as described below. This Warranty is for the benefit of the original Buyer only and terminates upon transfer of the Product from the original Buyer to any other person or entity. For this Warranty to be effective (i) the Product must be installed by a method recognized and authorized by Noritz and in compliance with Noritz published materials specifically indicated in writing to be applicable to the type and model number of the Product and in compliance with instructions in the Installation Manual and Owner’s Guide, which are included with the Product (“Proper Installation”); and (ii) Buyer must use the Product in compliance with instructions in the Installation Manual and Owner’s Guide, which are included with the Product.
2. Warranty Period This Warranty is provided by Noritz to the Buyer for the duration of the applicable Warranty Period for the particular component of the Product as specified below. This Warranty takes effect (“Warranty Effective Date”) on the date of Proper Installation of the Product, or 30 days after the date of purchase of the Product, whichever occurs first, and is effective until the expiration of the “Warranty Period” for the particular Product component as shown below. The date of Proper Installation must be provided to Noritz as well as a copy of the original receipt for the purchase of the Product to establish the Warranty Effective Date. For example, when the Product is installed in new single-family residential construction, the Warranty Effective Date is the date upon which the Buyer takes title to the real property (e.g., the date of recordation of the deed conveying title to Buyer).

3. How do I Use this Warranty? If Buyer discovers, within the applicable Warranty Period, a defect in material or workmanship (“Defect”), Buyer must promptly notify Noritz or its authorized representative. Please notify Noritz by contacting Noritz’s Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by writing to Noritz Customer Care at 11160 Grace Avenue, Fountain Valley, CA 92708, or by calling Noritz Customer Care at 866-766-7489. Buyer must provide evidence of the Warranty Effective Date (See Section 2 above). Within a reasonable time after Noritz receives such notification, Noritz will ship at Noritz’s expense, either new or used/refurbished replacement parts to correct a Noritz-confirmed Defect. Buyer is responsible for any other costs, including but not limited to labor for servicing or replacing the part or Product (except to the extent that labor is covered as described in the Warranty Period section above), costs for permits or materials necessary for the repair or replacement, or incidental costs resulting from damage external to the Product resulting from the Defect. The replacement component or Product will be warranted only for the unexpired portion of the original component's applicable Warranty Period. If during the applicable Warranty Period, the Noritz-provided new or used replacement parts, when properly installed, do not correct the Defect, or if Noritz is unable to correct the Defect after a reasonable number of attempts, Noritz will provide, at its option, one of the following: (i) a replacement new or used/refurbished Product (at Noritz’s option, either the same, comparable or better model), to be shipped at Noritz’s expense, or (ii) a full refund of the purchase price paid for the Product (excluding labor or installation costs). These remedies are the Buyer’s only remedies for breach of Warranty.
