Customers assumes all responsibility and liability for proper product installation. It is the customers sole responsibility to hire a qualified service technician to properly analyze/diagnose and install vintage used re-built thermostats, safety shut off valves, burner valves, new old stock, or any part related to vintage gas stoves. We cannot offer long distance diagnosis of stove mechanical problems. To serve your best interests we recommend contacting a qualified stove technician and/or company in your area. Warrantied products begin the date of product delivery to customer, not the date of installation. Warranties do not cover altered factory calibrated settings or damage as a result of improper installation. Customer will be responsible for any necessary re-calibration costs plus shipping costs as a result of improper installation. All sales are final on thermostats and safety shut off valves - no refunds, returns or credits will be issued as we cannot ensure safe operation to other customers regardless whether or not the shipping package or item packing is opened. Please be sure you are purchasing the correct valve. They are covered by a one year warranty. Re-built thermostat and safety shut-off valve warranties apply when installed by a certified service technician and/or company and returned with a copy of customer technician invoice stating item 'defective'. GVS is not responsible for customer's technician service fees or misdiagnosis. If you purchase a used non-rebuilt thermostat or safety valve, all sales for used thermostats and/or safety valves are final - no warranty applies, no refund or return will be accepted. Customer part restorations is always a 'best efforts applies' service, we do our best to restore a customers part with what we are provided by customer. If we find a that a customer's vintage part is not restorable (often this is not known until the disassemble, strip and/or blasting process is complete) we will try to find a replacement within our GVS inventory to complete the customers restoration. This may cause considerable delays. Customer parts received for restoration must be paid in full including return shipping fees prior to any services being rendered. Services are earned upon full payment. Parts will be shipped to customer upon completion of restoration unless instructed otherwise by customer. Parts received for restoration with a balance due or no sender communications received by GVS shall be disposed of after 6 months. Shipping tracking #'s are provided to customers via EML on all shipped parts.
