- Transformers with cut power cords, or that have been altered in any way,
- Transformers damaged by loose terminal block screws.
- Transformers installed within one thousand feet of any salt water source must be installed in an enclosure such as by Hoffman MFG or in a building, shed or suitable protection to avoid salt spray damage to the transformer. Damage from salt spray is not covered by this warranty. Installations in a building must adhere to specific local electrical code. Contact local electrical authority for details specific to your municipality or governing body.
Transformers that are returned to distributor and claim to be defective must be bench tested by the distributor prior to obtaining an RGA from Cast Lighting. To replace a transformer that is suspected of having a warranted defect the original purchaser must contact Cast Lighting LLC and obtain a return goods authorization (RGA) and ship FOB destination to the Cast Lighting service center identified on the RGA. Transformer will be repaired and returned to customer either with a like model swapped out for the returned unit or the actual returned unit being repaired and returned to the customer. Cast Lighting reserves the right to issue a credit, repair, or swap-out with a rebuilt transformer any defective transformer.
If returned transformers are found to require repairs not covered under warranty, then the customer will be notified of the repair charge and given forty-five days from the date of estimate to choose to either repair, return un-repaired, or to abandon ownership. Transformers held over forty five days (without communication from owner) will be considered abandoned and CAST Lighting will assume ownership. If owner authorizes unwarranted repairs, then the owner will be responsible for all repair, packaging, and shipping costs.
In addition to the above, all returned transformers must be tagged with customer’s name, contact person, problem encountered, cell phone number and e-mail information. Do not write on transformer with a magic marker. Transformer must be packaged properly to avoid shipping damage.
To replace a product that is suspected of having a warranted defect, the original purchaser must contact Cast Lighting LLC and obtain a return goods authorization (RGA) and ship FOB destination to the Cast Lighting service center identified on the RGA. Original owner must include proof of purchase, original purchasers name, return address and a detailed description of the allegedly defective parts or products.

If any of the warranted products are found by Cast lighting to be defective, such products will, at Cast Lighting LLC’s sole discretion, be replaced, repaired or refunded less an amount directly attributable to the owner’s prior use – such use to be calculated as a percentage of published estimated life.
