SCG Warranty Information
Seattle Coffee Gear offers a limited warranty on some of the equipment that it sells. Please refer to this directory to confirm that your equipment is directly supported by this warranty prior to contacting us for service.
To receive warranty support on your equipment through Seattle Coffee Gear, you must provide proof of purchase in the form of your original order number. For orders placed online or over the phone, this information would have been emailed to you at order confirmation and also referenced on the packing slip. For purchases made in a retail store location, this information is on the original sales receipt that you received at purchase. Please note: We cannot correlate retail store orders to the original order number without this receipt; you must provide this information in order to receive warranty support.
Seattle Coffee Gear warranties are non-transferable.
The warranty covers parts and labor required to repair the machine and any mechanical or electrical components (including, but not limited to, control boards, pumps, boilers, wiring, brew groups, hoses or motors) from defect or failure under normal use conditions. The warranty includes free return shipping to any location within the continental US. Customer must pay to ship the machine to our repair center if necessary.

To initiate warranty service, we will need your equipment's original order number, located on your packing slip or original sales receipt, as applicable.
Please note that we will primarily troubleshoot the issue over the phone, so contacting us when you are in front of the machine and able to perform basic actions is important.
