About Your Product Warranty

CUE Co. welcomes warranty repair and apologizes to you for being inconvenienced. Any Authorized Service Dealer may perform warranty repairs. Most warranty repairs are handled routinely, but sometimes warranty service may be inappropriate. For example, warranty would not apply if an engine is damaged because of misuse, lack of routine maintenance, shipping, handling, warehousing and improper installation. Similarly, warranty is void if the serial number on the engine has been removed or if the engine has been altered or modified. If a customer differs with the decision of the Service Dealer, an investigation will be made to determine whether the warranty applies. Ask the Service Dealer to submit all supporting facts to his Distributor or the factory for review. If the distributor or the factory decides that the claim is justified, the customer will be fully reimbursed for those items that are defective. To avoid misunderstanding, which might occur between the customer and the dealer, listed below are some of the causes of engine failure that the warranty does not cover.


Normal wear:

Engines and generators, like all mechanical devices, need periodic parts service and replacement to perform well. Warranty will not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part of an engine.

Improper maintenance:

The life of an engine or your equipment depends upon the conditions under which it operates, and the care it receives. Some applications, such as tillers, pumps, and rotary movers, are very often used in dusty or dirty conditions, which can cause what appears to be premature, wear. Such wear, when caused by dirt, dust, spark pug cleaning grit, or other abrasive material that has entered the engine because of improper maintenance is not covered by warranty.

3.  Leaking carburetor, clogged fuel pipes, sticking valves, or other damage, caused by using contaminated or stale fuel. (Use clean, fresh, lead-free gasoline.)

4.  Parts which are scored or broken because an engine was operated with insufficient or contaminated lubricating oil, or and incorrect grad of lubricating oil (check oil level daily or after every 8 hours of operation. Refill when necessary and change at recommended intervals.) Engine damage may occur if oil level is not properly maintained. Read Operating & Maintenance Instructions.

5.  Repair or adjustment of associated parts or assemblies such as clutches, transmissions, remote controls, etc., which are not manufactured by CUE Co.

6.  Damage or wear to parts caused by dirt, which entered the engine because of improper air filter maintenance, re-assembly, or use of a non-original air filter element or cartridge. Read Operating & Maintenance Instructions.

7.  Parts damaged by over-speeding, or overheating caused by grass, debris, or dirt, which plugs or clogs the cooling fins, or flywheel are, or damaged caused by operating the engine in a confined area without sufficient ventilation.

8.  Engine or equipment parts broken by excessive vibration caused by a loosen cutter blades unbalanced blades or loose unbalanced impellers, improper attachment of equipment to engine crankshaft, over speeding or other abuse in operation.

9.  A bent or broken crankshaft, caused by striking a solid object with the cutter blade of a rotary lawn mower, or excessive v-belt tightness.
