BrotherĀ® One Year Limited Warranty and Replacement Service 
(USA only)
 
Brother reserves the right to supply a
refurbished or remanufactured replacement
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items and use refurbished
parts provided such replacement products
conform to the manufacturer's specifications
for new product/parts. The repaired or
replacement Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items will be
returned to you freight prepaid or made
available for you to pick up at a conveniently
located Authorized Service Center.
If the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items are not
covered by this warranty (either stage), you
will be charged for shipping the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items back to you and charged
for any service and/or replacement parts/
products at Brother's then current published
rates.
 
The foregoing are your sole (i.e., only)
and exclusive remedies under this
warranty.
What happens when Brother elects to
replace your Machine:
 
When a replacement Machine is authorized
by Brother, and you have delivered the
Machine to an Authorized Service Center,
the Authorized Service Center will provide
you with a replacement Machine after
receiving one from Brother. If you are
dealing directly with Brother, Brother will
send to you a replacement Machine with the
understanding that you will, after receipt of
the replacement Machine, supply the
required proof of purchase information,
together with the Machine that Brother
agreed to replace. You are then expected to
pack the Machine that Brother agreed to
replace in the package from the replacement
Machine and return it to Brother using the
pre-paid freight bill supplied by Brother in
accordance with the instructions provided by
Brother. Since you will be in possession of
two machines, Brother will require that you
provide a valid major credit card number.
Brother will issue a hold against the credit
card account number that you provide until
Brother receives your original Product and
determines that your original Product is
entitled to warranty coverage. Your credit
card will be charged up to the cost of a new
Product only if: (i) you do not return your
original Product to Brother within five (5)
business days; (ii) the problems with your
original Product are not covered by the
limited warranty; (iii) the proper packaging
instructions are not followed and has caused
damage to the product; or (iv) the warranty
period on your original Product has expired
or has not been sufficiently validated with a
copy of the proof of purchase (bill of sale).
The replacement Machine you receive (even
if refurbished or remanufactured) will be
covered by the balance of the limited
warranty period remaining on the original
Product, plus an additional thirty (30) days.
You will keep the replacement Machine that
is sent to you and your original Machine shall
become the property of Brother. 
 
Retain your
original Accessory Items and a copy of
the return freight bill, signed by the
courier.
