OEM Controls Certified Product Repair Program Policy
The following is the only authorized and certified repair program of OEM Controls, Inc. products in the United States, Canada and South America.
The Certified Product Repair program by OEM Controls, Inc. offers the same dependable and quality workmanship given to every new product that is shipped from our facility. The same certified and trained personnel that built the original products are repairing the controllers.
A repaired product is defined, per ANSI A92.6, as „the act of restoring to good condition that which has been broken, damaged, or worn due to use, abuse or other reasons. OEM Controls has taken that one step further. Utilizing originally specified parts and components ensures the same quality that goes into the manufacturing of new controllers is used in the repair of the returned controllers. OEM Controls will label each controller with its proper part number and a suffix of -CR to designate it as a Certified Repair. There will also be a Quality Assurance Final Test serial number and date placed on each controller.
RETURN ORDER PROCEDURE:
1. Parts to be returned for repair must obtain a return authorization number. This can be obtained one or a combination of three ways:
i. The form requests billing and shipping addresses, payment method and itemized list of the parts being returned. It also includes standard pricing for the different types of controllers offered by OEM Controls. Fill this form out completely, submit it and within a half hour you will be contacted with your authorization number.
ii. Phone in the request to the Product Support direct line, (203) 929-8431×340 or 1-(800) 350-7605. The friendly Product Support Administrator will take your information and advise of the return authorization number.

2. Upon receiving the return authorization number, place it on all corresponding paperwork and on the outside of the shipping container. This will ensure quick response to the returned product.
3. OEM Controls requires a purchase order or credit card number with all returns before the units can be received into the repair process. If receiving a number over the phone, the customer must supply a hard copy of the purchase order by fax or with the returned units. If a PO# is not received, the returned product will be returned to its originating destination, freight collect.
