K2 Scientific Warranty Terms and Conditions


To ensure your warranty coverage, please register your unit within 30 days of receiving it. This registration is mandatory for both the standard 2-year warranty and the extended 2+3-year warranty, applicable to all K2 units featuring our Monoblock technology.

All K2 units purchased after November 6, 2023, require an ongoing connection to the VPL that is shipped complimentary with the unit for the full warranty to be in effect.  Connection to the VPL and VitalLog Cloud is required throughout the warranty period to improve the speed of service and ensure an accurate diagnosis of any warranty claim.  Preventive maintenance is also required.


If a catastrophic failure occurs, such as a compressor failure, K2 Scientific will replace the appliance free of charge within two years from your original purchase date. The replacement appliance carries the original warranty end date.


K2 Scientific appliances also carry two-year parts and a labor-limited warranty. This warranty period begins on the original purchase date. It includes replacing parts or the entire unit if necessary and in K2 Scientific's sole discretion when problems arise due to defective workmanship or materials. The buyer is responsible for maintaining the appliance according to the operations manual. Keeping records of such maintenance helps ensure warranty repair claims. Any failure to properly maintain any appliance voids this warranty.
