Carry in 12 months warranty
Goods will be refunded or exchanged, in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Consumer Protection
Act, if the goods were defective, unfit for purpose or failed due to a design or manufacturing flaw. Café Kreme
reserves the right to refer returned goods for technical assessment by the manufacturer or authorized service
centre. Customers are required to present their original invoice or any other proof of purchase.
Please note that it may not be possible to determine in-store whether goods have been damaged or what the
cause of a failure or defect may be. Accordingly, Café Kreme reserves the right to refer returned goods for
technical assessment by the manufacturer or authorized service centre prior to repairing, replacing or
refunding an item and to provide the customer with feedback within 10 business days of receipt of the returned
goods and to act accordingly.
If the goods show a defect after the initial 12 (twelve) month period, but are within the manufacturer’s warranty
period, Café Kreme may, at the customer’s request send the goods to the manufacturer for repair and the
manufacturer will decide whether you will have a valid claim and if so, whether they will repair or replace as
well or whether any charges will be levied in accordance with the terms of the warranty. All goods repaired in
terms hereof will carry a further 3 (three) month warranty which runs concurrently with the 12 (twelve) month
period but may serve to extend the warranty beyond the original 12 (twelve) month period where the 3 (three)
months expire after the 12 (twelve) month period.
If the goods become defective once the manufacturer’s warranty has expired, we will attempt to arrange with
the manufacturer or its agents to repair the goods but bear no responsibility for their failure to do so.
No chargeable repairs will be done without the customer’s approval of a quotation first. If within 3 (three)
months after goods have been repaired, the defect persists or a further failure or defect occurs on the repaired
component Café Kreme will either refund or replace the component.
Customers must keep proof of repairs.
