Consumer Guarantees, Warranties & Refunds
Understanding your Rights Under Australian Consumer Law
for Consumer Electronic Devices & Home Entertainment Products
The Australian Consumer Law protects consumers by giving them certain guaranteed rights when they buy goods and services. For example, the Law requires that goods must be free of defects, and do what they are meant to do. Services must be carried out with care and skill. These rights, which the Law says automatically apply whenever goods or services are supplied to a consumer, are called ‘Consumer Guarantees’.
Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and failure does not amount to a major failure.
Consumer Guarantees have no set time limit - depending on the price and quality of goods, consumers may be entitled to a remedy after any manufacturers' or extended warranty has expired. In that circumstance, JB Hi-Fi recommends you contact the manufacturer's customer assistance department (for a list of most manufacturer's customer assistance contact details, click here). Even though the manufacturer's warranty may have expired the manufacturer is not only best suited but is obligated to assess the nature, cause and extent of a failure or fault if you have reason to believe there has been a breach of Consumer Guarantees. If at any time you are not satisfied with the manufacturer's remedy in relation to your statutory rights then contact the Store Manager of your nearest JB Hi-Fi store for assistance.
