If the returned product is found not to be defective under the conditions of this warranty, a charge will be made for repair or replacement.

This is a Limited Warranty.  It covers the product only and the extent of the coverage is limited to the cost of the product. As we have no control over shipping, handling and installation, the warranty cannot cover any damage caused by these factors.

  2. Repair the defective device at Solar CowboyZ depot facility; or
  3. Refund the actual cash value, as determined by Solar CowboyZ, of the defective unit.
  4. In the case of an exchange, the remainder of the eligible warranty will be transferred to the replacement device, or 90 days whichever date is longer.

 

In order to fulfill its obligations under this limited warranty, Solar CowboyZ may require a copy of the purchase receipt, the warranty certificate, installation document, or evidence of the warranty extension.  End-user customers are encouraged to retain such documentation.

How to get Warranty Support

Solar CowboyZ products are designed and built for reliability. In the unlikely event of a failure, please contact the Solar CowboyZ Technical Service Line at 1-360-435-8826 where a Solar CowboyZ Technical Support Representative will assist you.

  • Proper fault diagnosis may require a qualified Solar PV service technician to be at the Solar CowboyZ device location and equipped with a quality digital AC/DC voltmeter.
  • The onsite service technician may be asked to take voltage and current measurements and provide error codes from the inverter.
  • Additional information will be required such as:
    • model number
    • serial number
    • job site name
    • original date of installation
    • PV array configuration (brand & model number, count of solar panels)
    • description of the system layout and application.

 

If the onsite repair technician is unwilling or unable to assist Solar CowboyZ in the fault diagnosis process, the customer may be charged an inspection fee plus shipping costs if no trouble is found when the device is tested by the Solar CowboyZ Service Repair Department.
