If you suspect that your product has developed a fault, then please contact us and we will advise on the steps to take. It might be that we put you in direct contact with the manufacturer so that their technical department can help diagnose and fix the fault - we have found that many faults can be fixed from speaking to technical departments without any spare parts or product replacements being sent out and this is obviously beneficial to everyone involved.
If your product does have a fault and it is within the manufacturer's warranty period then we will assist in any way that we can to provide you with necessary support.
