I received a defective Item

Defective Items must be reported within 7 days of delivery. Please include a description and photos of any issues. We will send a return label for the defective item and reship a new item. Boxed items have to be returned in full. (Ex: water pump kit with a bad gasket – We will need the entire kit back and will send complete a new kit). *If the defective item is not returned within 30 days, we reserve the right to charge in full for the additional item.

I have an issue with an item under warranty (After NuWaves 30 day return period)

Warranty process is different per manufacturer. We are willing to help as much as possible with submitting your claim, but in some cases it may be best to work directly with the manufacturer.
