What is needed to complete and process a Warranty Return Request?
All warranty returns require the submission of a completed Warranty Return Request Form.
There are two options for processing a warranty return on Component Parts. The Customer/Distributor must contact Customer Service and/or submit the completed Return Request; and:
- Once the completed Return Request and the image of the manufacturer label from the defective item is received, the replacement item will be sent, freight prepaid, and at no charge; OR
- The Customer/Distributor can pay the core charge for the replacement item, Portacool will ship the replacement item freight prepaid, and upon receipt of the image of the manufacturer label from the defective item, credit will be issued for the core charge.
Replacement of Component Parts
For replacement of Component Parts, Portacool does not require the defective component to be returned to Portacool unless requested otherwise.

Portacool reserves the right to make the final determination to process and authorize a Return Request, based on its own evaluation of the evaporative cooler and all components, as to whether:
- The problem in question is the result of a defect in design, workmanship, or materials, and not a result of an error, misuse, or abuse of the unit under the exclusions detailed below;
- Noise heard during operation is within normal operating levels, in which case this warranty would be inapplicable. Note: Certain electrical, motor, or other operating noise may be impossible to eliminate due to the fan design and/or site conditions. Dissatisfaction with normal operating noise levels is not covered by this warranty.
- Adverse site conditions, (including, but not limited to, excessive dust, unstable electric service, or any other unknown or unforeseen condition that affects the proper operation of the products) or improper application is determined to be the basis for the failure.

- Product or components where the serial number or part number sticker has been removed or defaced.
