The reseller or the end user would complete a technical support ticket to register the fault.  The ticket register option can be found on the top right of the Powertec website.  Powertec’s technical support team will determine if the fault is due to a manufacturing defect or other.

If the unit is classified as a DOA Powertec will generate an RA# (Returns Authority) number and email a Return Authorisation Form to the person returning the unit.

The dealer or the end user arranges to return the faulty unit to Powertec via Powertec’s nominated courier.

The following items need to be sent back to Powertec:

Powertec will then test the unit.

If no fault is found the unit will be sent back and the freight charge will be forwarded to the customer/dealer.

If the unit is faulty, a replacement will be sent to the customer/reseller. If no replacement unit is available a Powertec repair agent will attempt to repair the unit at no cost to the end user. If the unit cannot be repaired a credit will be issued.
