Star Manufacturing Warranty Policy


Star Manufacturing [as well as its subsidiaries, Toastmaster and Holman] warranties new products to be free from defects in material and/or workmanship for a period of one [1] year from the date of original installation, except as noted below. Defects that occur as a result of normal use, within the time period and limitations defined in this warranty, will at Star’s discretion have the parts replaced or repaired by Star or a Star-authorized service agency.


Repairs performed under this warranty are to be performed by a Star authorized service agency. Star will not be responsible for charges incurred or service performed by non-authorized repair agencies. In all cases, the nearest Star-authorized service agency must be used. Star will be responsible for normal labor charges incurred in the repair or replacement of a warrantied product within 50 miles (80.5 km) of an authorized service agency. Time and expense charges for anything beyond that distance will be the responsibility of the owner. All labor will need to be performed during regular service hours. Any overtime premium will be charged to the owner. For all shipments outside the U.S.A. and Canada, please see the International Warranty for specific details. It is the responsibility of the owner to inspect and report any shipping damage claims, hidden or otherwise, promptly following delivery. No mileage or travel charges will be honored on any equipment that is deemed portable. In general, equipment with a cord and plug weighing less than 50 lb. (22.7 kg) is considered portable and should be taken or shipped to the closest authorized service agency, transportation prepaid.
