7. PSI liability under this Limited Service Warranty is limited to the net price paid to PSI by the customer for such product or service proved defective or, at PSI option, to the repair or replacement of such equipment upon return to PSI in accordance with the terms and requirements of the foregoing policy.

When PSI provides a warranty replacement for a defective unit, the warranty is continued for the warranty period of the original purchase. If no defect is found with the returned unit, the customer will be held responsible for the cost of testing, recertification, parts, and labor incurred to return the unit to overhauled condition.

 

 

Overhaul Exchange Policy

 

When an overhaul exchange unit is purchased from PSI, our customer receives a unit that has been serviced and fully certified for airworthiness to manufacturer’s standards. In exchange, our customer returns to PSI a like repairable unit (Core) for subsequent overhaul and to return to PSI inventory for future exchanges. PSI takes possession of the core as its property.

Core returns must have the same part number as the exchange unit, unless other arrangements are made at the time of purchase. If an unlike part number is received as a core without prior arrangements being made, PSI reserves the right to bill the customer the full outright sales price and return the unacceptable core.

All core units are subject to inspection and approval of PSI’s quality department. Core and overhaul units must be received "as removed" from the aircraft, and in rebuildable condition. If the unit is not in an acceptable condition, the flat rate exchange price is not applicable. The customer will be notified and a suitable settlement will be negotiated. Unacceptable conditions may be defined as, but not limited to a unit with unlike part numbers or that has been dropped, submerged, contaminated, overheated, or has abnormal wear.

Prompt return of cores is crucial to maintain available stock levels that permit us to supply exchange needs on a short and timely basis. Cores should be received within 7 days unless prior arrangements have been made or the transaction is considered to be an outright sale.

Exchange units returned unused may be subject to a recertification and restocking fee.
