Bosch Warranty

Warranty is valid in country of purchase only. This warranty is given by BSH Home Appliances Ltd of Unit F2, 4 Orbit Drive, Mairangi Bay, Auckland, 0632 (the Company). Subject to the exceptions set out below, this appliance is warranted by the Company to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 2 years from the date of purchase. The benefits offered by this warranty are in addition to your rights and remedies under New Zealand law.

Our appliances come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a substantial failure and for compensation for any reasonably foreseeable loss or damage arising as a result of the appliance's failure. You are also entitled to have the appliance repaired or replaced if the appliance fails to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a substantial failure. In the event of a minor failure, the Company reserves the right to choose to repair or replace the appliance. To make a warranty claim, you must be able to supply proof of purchase. In the first instance, you should call Customer Service New Zealand on 0800 245 700. The Company will create and retain a computer record of your application. The Company will bear any expenses incurred for warranty claims, excluding the cost of transport of the appliance for service or the service agents travelling costs to and from your home if you live outside the service area of the Company or one of its service agents.
