Such quoted price include a “Minimum Charge” that covers costs for engineer’s time and
parts (if any) used to attempt a repair. Such “Minimum Charge” becomes due only (i)
when after diagnosis, We find, in Our sole discretion, that the unit is Beyond Economical
Repair (BER), i.e., We advise you that it’d be cheaper to buy a new unit than repair the
damaged one; or (ii) when due to any circumstance(s), We provide you with a new repair
quotation, which you refuse; or (iii) when the unit is covered by warranty, but the repair
work required is not covered by warranty terms, We give you an option to carry out such
repairs after paying normal repair charges, which you refuse.
