If the replacement part does not resolve the issue, the luminaire must be returned to the LUMINIS factory for inspection and repair (see option 2).

LUMINIS shall be responsible for shipping costs and charges and all taxes only up to the amount of standard non-expedited ground service charges from LUMINIS factory to the CUSTOMER’s original destination. If there are any physical damages due to improper packaging for the returning shipment, LUMINIS will issue a quote to the CUSTOMER to repair or replace the damaged part(s).
If, upon inspection, LUMINIS determines that the product has not breached the terms of its limited warranty, LUMINIS shall inform the CUSTOMER the reason for this determination. If repairs or a replacement is required, LUMINIS will issue a quote to the CUSTOMER to repair or replace the product. If, the CUSTOMER accepts the quoted charges to repair or replace the product, the CUSTOMER shall issue a Purchase Order to LUMINIS. All freight charges shall be at the CUSTOMER’s expense. If the CUSTOMER declines the quoted charges, LUMINIS shall return the product to the CUSTOMER at the CUSTOMER’s expense.
